Our Pub


The Black Horse


Nestling in the main street of this beautiful Cotswolds village, the Black Hose Inn has been serving ale since the 1870's. Originally sold to The Stow Brewery in 1896 for £570 the Black Horse Inn is now one of 17 pubs within the portfolio of the Donnington Brewery.

The Black Horse Inn is a traditional village pub with strong local support, a winter-time darts team, a fun monthly pub quiz and the meeting place for several village groups. Visitors are, of course, always welcome (together with their well-behaved canine companions) and many choose to plan their walk, cycle or drive with a lunch break at The Black Horse Inn.

Donnington Brewery


The Brewery


The Brewery is located just outside Stow on the Wold but is sadly, not open to the public. The buildings that house the brewery were bought by Thomas Arkell in 1827 whose descendant Richard Arkell started a brewery there in 1865. Today, 150 years on, the brewery is still owned and run by the Arkell family and the mill wheel is still used to drive pumps and machinery to brew beer including the traditional ales, B.B. and S.B.A.

The Village of Naunton


Naunton Dovecote


100 years ago Naunton was almost a closed community as men worked on the farms or at the quarries, women wove and spun or made lace in the cottages and the village provided all the services expected in those days. If you walk through the village today you can see many relics of that time and glimpses much further back into history including an historic Dovecote.
