COVID 19 Update – 28/11/2020

To all our loyal customers.

After great deliberation we have made the difficult decision to remain closed for the time being.

Although we move out of the national restrictions on Wednesday 2nd December and move into the new Tier 2 restrictions, we predominately operate as a ‘Pub’.  

There are still strict guidelines including not meeting with any person inside that does not live in the same household and only being able to drink alcohol whilst eating a substantial meal. For these reasons we have, regrettably, decided to remain closed.


Once again, we do thank you for all your continued support and we will be reviewing the situation as and when reviews of guidelines are made by the government.


We truly hope to welcome everyone back soon.

Team Black Horse.




The Black Horse Inn is a beautiful country pub, located just off the A283 between Petworth and Fittleworth, in the idyllic hamlet of Byworth.

Jeff Paddock, landlord of 14 years, and his well-established team thrive on providing you with the highest standards of local food, drink and service.

The roaring log fire in the bar, with original beams and bare-board flooring, is the perfect place to warm up and escape the winter elements.

Come Summer time the garden is thriving and the ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch overlooking the rolling hills of the Shimmings Valley. 

Although a bit of the beaten track, this true survival of a traditional country Inn is well worth a visit.
