It has been great welcoming you again!

We truly hope you and your loved ones are remaining safe during these uncertain times.

The same warm welcome awaits you at the Black Horse.

However things are a little different now. We are following governement guidelines on operating our business in a covid-19 secure way.

This is to ensure everyone is kept safe.

The most recent changes are that we must not, under any circumstances, allow people in groups over 6 people. You should not socialise with people in another group and/or swap places with someone in another group.

We now also have to take contact information from everyone visiting. 

More information is available on the links below this message.

We will be updating opening hours (please see bottom of page) and menus regularly. 

If you wish to book a table for food or drinks please give us a call.

It truly has been great welcoming everyone back and we thank you for your continued support.

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 13 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.
