NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A nationwide lockdown is currently in place in England, and you are required by law to stay at home. Hospitality venues can still provide food takeaway and delivery services, but can only sell alcohol by delivery service.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


Updates

South Oxfordshire CAMRA Branch has created a spreadsheet on its website with the latest operating status of all pubs in the Branch area. This includes, for example, opening hours and takeaway and delivery services, amongst other important information. This is of course dependant on the current tier or lockdown restrictions the pubs find themselves in. The Branch continually updates this information.

About the Pub

The Black Horse has been in existence for over 350 years and run by same family for over 110. This unspoilt Grade II-listed gem is hidden away up a lane that at first glance appears to lead nowhere. Well worth seeking out, it is popular with locals, walkers, horse riders and cyclists. Not a food pub, although there is usually a baguette to be had at lunchtimes. The al-fresco Gents toilet is worth a visit too ! During the winter months opening times may vary and calling ahead is advisable at quiet times. Dogs welcome in the pub if they are small, quiet and on a lead, but otherwise they will need to stay outside. This is a cash only pub.
