Great delight that 'The Horse' in Cranham is back again after a recent decline. There's a great range of well-kept ales and the food is beautifully prepared and delicious with an increasing range of dishes - a brilliant village pub.

Following the return of the free-holders Dave and Julie Job, the BH certainly was back on best form last night. Delicious pizzas made in their pizza oven with lots of toppings, and really good value. A good selection of guest ales kept to Dave's high...More

Visited the pub a couple of months ago, the language and atmosphere seemed very threatening, had one drink and left, I’ve been to the pub many times before, it will need major improvement for us ever to visit again.

The Black Horse Inn is a hidden Cotswold gem. It is still a real pub not a restaurant in the country. Customers are always welcome for just a drink and a chat with our locals. Our food is all home made from locally sourced ingredients. We prepare the food in small batches to ensure that quality is kept high. This does mean that some popular dishes may not be available during busy periods while we cook some more. Our meals are wholesome pub fare and we are renowned for our hearty portions. Our traditional Sunday lunches are very popular and advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment,
