Black Horse Inn

Location: Amberley


Postcode: GL5 5AL

The Black Horse is perched on the edge of Minchinhampton Common and has stunning views from the rear of the pub across the Nailsworth Valley.

The Black Horse was originally built as two weavers cottages.

The building has been a pub for over 250 years. When Whitbread owned the Black Horse the original mullioned windows were removed and replaced with double glazing.

The regulars at the Black Horse celebrated New Years Eve (2008/9) with a ‘tropical island’ party. Landlady Sharyn O’Flynn organised the delivery of more than 45 tons of white sand, which was used to transform the bars and the outdoor marquee to a tropical island beach! A steel band provided entertainment.

The Black Horse is the Stroud Sub Branch of Gloucestershire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2008. Beers from the new Stroud Brewery in Thrupp are usually available.
