Harveys Sussex Best Bitter Pilgrim Progress Guest Beer
Formerly a cosy country pub of character, the Black Horse has been refurbished, the bar moved from the centre of the pub to one end, and the walls brightly painted. From the car park the route to the bar is past a wooden floored dining room. This leads to a number of drinking areas where there are several comfortable sofas along with more conventional tables and chairs. Having some slightly raised areas breaks these up. However, ramps allow all parts to be accessible to the disabled and there are a couple of disabled parking spaces. The disabled toilet also has a baby change. Doors open out from the back onto a large garden with a lot of tables for when the weather is suitable. Now part of the White Brasserie group, food is available 12-10 Monday to Thursday, 12-10:30 Friday and Saturday and 12-9 Sunday. The Pilgrim beer is often Progress but it does vary and the guest beer may be from large or local breweries and. although it is often a lowish gravity bitter, it may be of any style. Old photos on the walls show the pub as a Mellersh & Neale pub. The 55-seater restaurant is available for functions at no cost and the pub has a music license. Children are allowed in the pub until 6pm.
