Situated on the A22 between Eastbourne and Uckfield, The Blacksmiths’s Arms (formerly The Black Lion Inn), in Halland has a lot to offer. Originally built in 1807 as two Blacksmith’s Cottages, the building was later converted into a public house and was named the, “Blacksmith’s Arms” for 100 years. After many renovations & additions, it was re-named, “Black Lion Inn” but the original historic name has recently been restored by new managers, Steve and Viki, much to the delight of the local residents.
It boasts a traditional & comfortable public bar with working original fireplaces burning logs and coal. The seven room accommodation ranges from single, double en-suite & family en-suite, as well as a comfortable lounge/function room, available for lunches, evening meals, corporate & private events.
