A small, but very accommodating Inn that has all you need, run by charming owners and staff.
We felt very welcome in this lovely clean place and it was perfect for our over night stay. To top our stay off, we were presented with a beautiful full English breakfast in the morning that was cooked fresh while we waited !! Excellent !! Read less

Dislikes:
If I was to be a very picky person, then all I could say is that the shower needs a pump as it's was very week !!.............But that really is it !!

Likes:
The evening meal was good value; the breakfast that we had was of a good quality; bed was comfortable with good quality bed linen and towels; room and bathroom were both very clean.
Dislikes:
No hairdryer was provided; no information in room about the facilities or evacuation procedure; light over mirror in bathroom was not working. Breakfast was lacking in choice and service was casual.

"Friendly staff, clean rooms, great value!"
Two (double and twin) rooms, one night for a hen party in Brighton. Lovely little pub, great food, would stay again! Read less
Likes:
The rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great value for money, situated in a quiet village, 30 minutes from Brighton. Has plenty of parking which is unusual for the area.
Dislikes:
The only negatives we can think of is the shower wasn't very powerful but still useable and there are a couple of creaky floorboards in the corridor but wasn't a major problem for us.

"Nice enough pub accommodation and sociable atmosphere"
Overnight, visiting daughter and family in Uckfield. Would use it again although the sound insulation between rooms was poor. Great breakfast unless you want smoked fish and scrambled egg.
A good place to stay unless you are fussy - the cleanliness was my wife's prior worry but she was well pleased with what we found. Read less
Likes:
Sociable atmosphere in the bar area over our dinner.
People happy to chat....
Dislikes:
Fellow overnighters were quiet but given the sound insulation this could easily be a problem.
We heard our neighbour getting up rather too well.

"Clean & comfortable,but lacking space"
Our room was clean and comfortable, as was the en suite facilities, but both were far too small for a longer stay (we booked Fri night to Sundat night). I missed having a hairdryer in the room, but the pub was well situated for touring the local area; both countryside and beach. The breakfast and Sunday roast lunch were very good indeed and the portion sizes were large. The staff were friendly and accomodating. Read less
Likes:
The informal and relaxed venue and interior atmosphere.
Dislikes:
The droning noise from the extractor fan when you opened the bedroom window; offputing for sleep!

Response from The BlackSmiths Arms:
Dear Sir, We apologise for the intrusion, but our CCTV showed that another guest had tried to gain entry to our garage & the alarm was triggered.
It took a little time to get up & dressed & unlock downstairs to re-set the alarm.
Omce again we are very sorry for the intrusion

 We stayed for 4 nights while visiting friends. The room was very comfortable, the food was excellent and the hosts were lovely people, helpful in every way. Prices for the room and for food were very reasonable.
