We had a really nice meal from a nicely balanced menu, with special dishes of the day as well. The food was well prepared and presented by courteous and friendly staff. Great food, service and a nice wine, all for a reasonable price.

A pint of coke is £3.00 Super venue and super atmosphere. Food was expensive for what it was and my companion found his seafood burger lacking in flavour. A good try, however. Staff cannot be faulted.

Family visit five covers. Beautiful planters and other garden colour with lawns. Sat in sun outside and enjoyed the weather and planting. Food and service were excellent staff very attentive with second order drinks collected from table. Table cleared promptly after food finished.

Stayed here for one night on business. Rooms are very roomy with mezzanine and very good value, could certainly be used as family rooms. Ambience was great as was the service and food, would definitely stay here again.

Good morning Tracey, Blackboys is a very small village with just a pub, school and local cafe. We are a 10 minute car journey away from Uckfield which is a town with shops, restaurants and pubs. Hope this helps.
