Graham Coombs left this review about The Black Horse Inn

An excellent and unpretentious ale house on the edge of town. Apart from the slight aberration of a couple of high tables with stools planted right in the middle, it is nicely unspoilt with a number of interesting features, which outweigh the Greene King corporate touches. The bar billiards seems to have perished but toad-in-the-hole is still prominent. The excellent array of handpumps featured mainly local ales from the likes of Long Man, Burning Sky and Gun, with the usual Abbot and Old Speckled Hen. Well worth the short walk from town.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Black Horse Inn

Excellent traditional pub at the west end of town. The 'L'-shaped layout comprises the main bar at the front (with a bar billiards table and alehouse-style furniture and decor) and a lounge / dining area further back. Also offers accommodation. Reputedly still a Greene King house, although you would never know it from the fine selection of seven real ales and a cider available on handpump, including a couple from Burning Sky brewery and Flaming Embers from Old Dairy (£3.70).

The review by PSM below is comprehensive and accurate, so I'll just mention the beer range, which although this is a Greene King pub is by no means confined to that brewery's product. The house beer, a session ale called Black Horse Bitter, is badged as Hardys and Hansons, and the only other beers from the same stable are Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen, the other offerings being from local micros such as Bedlam and Burning Sky, with a cider on the eighth hand pump. Definitely one to visit if you find yourself in Lewes.
