We took our friends to the Blackboys Inn on Saturday night and we were not disappointed with the food, venue and the staff.

This was undoubtedly the best lamb roast ever-don't tell mum. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere which our whole party enjoyed immensely. Food was outstanding in this genuinely historic pub. A great find indeed.

Light lunch on a Saturday, cosy pub with relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or just Sunday lunch with family and friends. Interesting wine list and well-kept beers. Jay and his team are superb.

Blackboys have hosted many events for my friends and family, some happy some sad. The food is always excellent, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Oh, and they happen to serve my favorite Ale Thanks to Harveys of Lewes
