Recently had lunch here. Lovely old pub, the seating was 'cosy'. The food was ok but not fantastic and quite pricey for pub food. Would I go back, probably not!

Lovely country pub which gets the balance between being the "local" and a destination eatery just right.

We had a nice meal, followed with what was supposed to be cheese selection with "artisan" crackers. Jacobs and Cornish puffs are not artisan crackers by any stretch of the imagination.

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.
