There are a whole host a pubs in the area (we apologise for missing off the excellent The Bear at Rodborough, The Ragged Cot, and too many others to mention). Here are 3 of our favourites:

The Black Horse

A 10 minute walk up a narrow track above the house, the Black Horse is a great pub to sample local ales, ciders and try some good honest food. 

They say:

"The Black Horse, is a 400 year old country pub perched on the edge of Minchinhampton Common, with magnificent views across the valleys. Whether it is a sun drenched day in the terraced garden, or a less perfect day in the conservatory, the landscape that The Black Horse overlooks is never less than stunning, boasting some of the best views in the Cotswolds.

We serve traditional pub food with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, a growing range of ales, local and not so local, as well as a great selection of ciders and wines and whiskys (Over 50 at last count!!)

The Black Horse is the place to be, come wind, rain or shine. Children, dogs and wellies all welcome!"


The Weighbridge Inn

A firm favorite of ours, the Weighbridge is home to the 2 in 1 pie and serves a great pint of local ale. 

They say:

"The Weighbridge Inn is a quintessential English country pub, situated in the beautiful Cotswolds.

Whilst under new ownership, it is still every inch an 'old fashioned' pub in its style and ambience, with roaring log fires to welcome you in. Muddy boots, dogs and children are all welcome.

The Weighbridge Inn is renowned in the area for its wonderful 2in1 pies ® and our food is freshly cooked to order in the kitchen. We use great seasonal British food and where ever possible we source locally. We keep a range of local real ales on tap, as well as an interesting and varied wine list, which we continually update.

We also serve a full menu from 12pm everyday.

So come and enjoy the friendly atmosphere, real fires and a warm welcome at this renowned and historic Freehouse"


The Amberley Inn

A 15 minute walk along the hill but well worth it for the great Stroud Brewery Ales, Woodchester wines and great food.

They say:

"A beautiful, traditional Cotswold Inn. Positioned in the peaceful Cotswold village of Amberley, the National Trust owned Minchinhampton Common provides the hilltop backdrop and enviable views across the spectacular Cotswolds countryside.

Built in 1855, the historic inn retains all it's charm and atmosphere, with original oak panelled rooms and parquet flooring, stone mullioned windows and roaring log fires.

Good food is at the heart of what we do, consistently high quality meals made with care, and the finest local ingredients. Enjoy one of our local real ales all brewed within a three-mile radius or the local fine wines."
