A group of us went 19th July for the "Dean X Factor" what a brilliant night we all (9)had and we loved the host. Had so much fun will be going again next time I'm in Brighton at my daughters. Our food was very good too with No Complaints from any of us and a great service too..........

Being a local of rottingdean,have on a few previous occasions popped in for a quick drink.Generally it ran as an o.k pub.
However,being a carer,I popped in late afternoon on smugglers night with my cousin who was in a wheelchair.Drinks were ordered and supplied .Within a few moments of us starting our drinks the proprietor ,in a rude,hostile fashion,told us to put the wheel chair in a corner ...... out of the way .......We made sure on entering the pub that we were not blocking any doorways,stairways and even kept a good distance from bar so as not to impede other customers ordering.Upon us trying to reason with proprietor he became very rude and distressed my disabled cousin.As we felt we had no option but to leave immediately,we requested a refund on our drinks ,after an initial terse refusal,the refund was launched across the bar.
Other customers voiced their dismay at our treatment,yet seemed reticent in making their discomfort known ...........perhaps local loyalties?
We left with a very inconsolable cousin in her chair.
The pub itself seemed adequate....... but their attitude and people skills therein need to enter 2011.
Would we come again......probably not,as it still leaves a bad taste......would we recommend it.......sure,if your level of expectation does not include welcome,warmth and good hosting.

Purportedly dating back to 1513 Ye Olde Black Horse is a Greene King pub with two separate bars. To the right of the entrance is the lounge bar where there is plenty of comfortable seating and a plasma screen that was switched off during my recent midweek evening visit. Down some steps to the left of the entrance is the ‘Fisherman’s’ public bar where there is a dartboard and a TV that was also turned off. There is a quiz every Tuesday from 21:00 and there is live music every Friday night when there is a late license until 00:30, as there also is on Saturday nights. During the week this pub is open until 23:30 and on Sunday it closes at 23:00. There is an advertised projector screen and the Six Nations was being plugged, but I didn’t spot any signs for Sky Sports. Signs in the pub direct the way to the smoking area which is in fact the wheelie bin area at the rear of the public bar. There is a small bench against the wall here, but there was also an overflowing waste pipe and it wasn’t raining!

From the bar a standard draught selection was available alongside Greene King IPA, Morland Original, Abbot and Ruddles from the four hand pumps. This is hardly the most interesting selection of ale, but this is a GK pub. The Guinness was on good form though and the bloke behind the bar was polite enough. I didn’t spot any food advertised, but I visited quite late and would be surprised if food is not served during the day. The locals that were propping up the bar seemed to be pleasant enough and if I lived locally this pub would be on my beer map.

QI: Apparently this pub used to be called the Black Hole (not sure how long ago the name changed) and the lounge bar used to be a blacksmith’s forge.
