During our stay in Magaliesburg, we found Black Horse Brewery in a “things to do” brochure. I recognised the name from a post I’d seen on The Blessed Barrenness. Sharon had written about how fantastic the place is, so I knew we had to check it out. We headed to Black Horse late one afternoon for an early supper, and we weren’t disappointed (in the place, or the food). It’s a beautiful outdoor venue, with grass and trees so green, you feel a little healthier breathing that air. 😀

The name

Black Horse is named after their beautiful Friesian horses, whom Zee described as majestic.

{I later found that majestic is in fact how their horses are described on Black Horse’s own website too. Nice one my girl. 🙂 }

The horses were already being led back to their stables by the time we arrived, which is why I only ended up with one not so impressive photo of the very impressive animal.

The restaurant

There are tables at the top, not far from where you enter. There’s also a play area there, as well as a gift shop. A short walk down are the very relaxed, covered tables and couches, next to a trampoline for the kids.

Pretty much everything on their menu sounds delicious. It isn’t a big menu, but there’s something for everyone, including little ones. Their craft beers aren’t too bad either, according to Husband (beer isn’t my thing). I tasted the pink ginger beer when he did the beer tasting though, and that’s quite yum!

We loved everything about Black Horse Brewery… I mean I could’ve done without the bees that kept wanting some of my Coke, but hey what do you expect when you eat outside?… Seriously though, it really is a lovely place, with great food, pink ginger beer, plus a trampoline and so much place to run around and play, the kids won’t want to leave.

If you’re heading to Magaliesburg and thinking of visiting Black Horse Brewery, find out more on their website.
