Black Horse offers a craft brewery and distillery with a lovely country-style restaurant. Just one scenic hour from Johannesburg, they are situated outside Magaliesburg. You will be lucky if you get a table without booking. They are packed on weekends.
Once you sit down, the first thing you do is take a deep breath and just enjoy the fresh air. With beautiful views of lush green fields and majestic black horses. And for the first time in a long time, you feel relaxed.
If you’ve never tasted their beers, I would recommend you try the 5 or 10 beer tasters. That will give you a good idea of which one will be your favourite. For me, nothing beats the gingerberry. (FYI also available at Capital Craft). And if you’re not a beer drinker, they’ve also got a good variety of red and white wines, and also cocktails.
The menu is extensive with a good variety of breakfasts, appetizers, mains, and dessert. There are 6 absolutely delicious burgers to choose from. Each has a recommended craft beer to enjoy with it. There is also a pizza selection with lots of toppings to build your own. The prices are reasonable, portions are big, and the food very well presented on wooden boards.
This is a place to take the family on a weekend. You will spend the entire day there. The kiddies will love it. And for big groups, there are large seating areas where the family could enjoy. Or, just a romantic getaway for two. They’ve got a chapel so it is ideal for weddings. There is also a little curio shop with nice goodies.
Definitely a must-go. You will not be disappointed.
