We had a lovely lunch, food excellent but service a little slow. Overall a very enjoyable time. You can sit outside under the pagoda they have heaters. Very pretty inn, staff were very friendly.

My friend and I meet up once a month for dinner, to catch up away from our busy family and working lives. We love these evenings out. We have tried most of the local (to Heathfield) eateries and the Blackboys is one of the last on the long list. The online sample menu looks fabulous, so I had high hopes.... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and could not have wished for better. The accommodation is newly built. The rooms are beautifully furnished and are split level. The pub is fabulous. The food cannot be faulted and the staff are everything you could wish for. They made us feel at home during what was a tough two... More

We were greeted by the friendly staff, and there was absolutely no problem bringing in our two muddy dogs. There even suggested which tables were best for the dogs to lie down under. A good variety of beers and a menu that isn't too long were on offer, and the service was as swift as it was cheerful. Our food,... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Blackboys for the first time with friends and we were given an extremely warm welcome by a very personable young man. The choice of food is really good and the quality of the food is outstanding. All three courses were excellent. The timing between courses was perfect, we didn't feel pressured to... More
