The Black Horse pub in Standlake near Witney is a welcoming pub, packed full of history and has just had a lovely renovation opening up the restaurant area and adding a cosy atrium and fully renovated toilets which are now inside (about time you say) Two fantastic French chefs and a beautiful menu to suit all.

Excellent food, drink and service. We had a selection of mains and starters and it was all amazing. The curry I had was amazing as was everything else. The staff were very attentive, from offering water for our dog to being quick with drinks.
