Deborah and the team

Welcome to The Black Horse

On behalf of myself (Deborah) and the rest of The Black Horse team we are very happy to welcome you back! We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their support during the lockdown and can’t wait to see you all soon. We are reopening inside on the 17th May with covid precautions in place, however we currently remain open with undercover seating in our pub garden.

I have been the landlady of The Black Horse for the past 13 years over which time the pub has undergone much change including complete redecoration, new toilets downstairs and a cosy wood burner in the restaurant area! We pride ourselves in trying to be as welcoming as possible and have many fantastic regulars who keep returning for more! 

You'll find us on the outskirts of the historic town of Battle, very near the coastal town of Hastings. Being situated opposite Crowhurst Park and close to public footpaths we are also perfectly placed for holiday makers and walkers alike. We have parking available to the front and rear and a large pub garden to enjoy the sunshine when it shines! We are a dog friendly pub inside and out so please feel free to bring your well behaved doggy friends with you - they can also enjoy one our doggy dinners.

It can get very busy here, so we suggest you call us on 01424 777767 to book a table!
