The Black Horse is situated in front of Longford House to the east of the village.

George Smith, the owner of the Black Horse in 1891 was a farmer and he let the pub to tenants. Although George lived in the village, he did not reside in the Black Horse. Upon his death George Smith bequeathed the Black Horse to his daughter Sarah Champion. It seems probable that Sarah sold the pub to E.A. Greens Victoria Brewery in Stow on the Wold.

This page will be updated with additional information.

The pub still sells Stow beers but now from the Donnington Brewery – it one of their tied houses.
