This place used to be great. Had the Jungle curry before and really is the spiciest thing on the menu. However, this time I have been given a cold excuse for a starter and the jungle curry has been reduced to 5 slithers of beef in some water that once looked at a chilli. The water out of a pot...

Good Morning Johns Mate , I am SO sorry to hear this - I have forwarded the review to the Thai Kitchen to look at . What I can tell you is that if you contact Pranee (the owner of the Thai kitchen) I will ensure that you get a free meal and that it is really good. I really... More

Restaurant next to and attached to thatched pub. Food and drink very reasonably priced. Good sized portions of very good authentic Thai food. Very friendly service.

This is a wonderful pub with very well kept beer and in which you're made to feel very welcome. The lounge is a very comfortable place in which to enjoy a drink. But the icing on the cake is the superb thai food. Having sampled thai food in a range of places in GB, this is the nearest one can... More

How nice to find an honest pub unencumbered by the pretentiousness that so many 'Cotswolded' pubs in the area rely upon. Well kept beer, cheerful bar staff and great Thai food served to appreciative locals and visitors alike.

Very hospitable manager running this place, always welcoming and an excellent selection of beers at very reasonable prices. The Thai restaurant is also a massive plus and I have to say one of the best outside of London but again much more reasonably priced.

I am a local to the area and absolutely love this little treasure. The Thai food is to die for. The presentation of the food is very creative and this little touch makes it very special. The staff are all warm, friendly and attentive, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I will be returning again... More

The location was chosen by some friends because of the thai food and the great reputation . I have lived in the area for over thirty years and and am a regular diner in local eateries. This one had escaped under my radar and so I was really caught by surprise at the quality of food and the attentive service.... More

The atmosphere here is great, a real warm welcome from the locals. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with a good special board each evening and a decent not too fussy main menu. Didn't get a chance to taste the desserts as we were too stuffed after the main. Nice outside space to enjoy... More

Just been to the black horse after reading others reviews. What a great find! A traditional old English pub with thatched roof and low ceilings with the twist of having a Thai restaurant in the same building. Might sound strange but it really does work. My wife and I are from Yorkshire and were made very welcome by the staff... More
