The Food

The Black Lion menu is all about pub classics cooked using fresh and seasonal produce from in and around Sussex. Whether you are in the market for a light lunch or a slap up meal, the menu selection here is versatile, from lunch through to the evening. Think small plate starters such as butternut arancini scotch egg, sharing dishes like fully loaded nachos, salads for a lighter meal and burgers and dogs for those hungrier occasions.

We love the sound of the tofu dog with caramelised onions, chilli sauce and vegannaise. The Asian salad is also jumping out, along with the ‘sticky toffee with Guiness ice cream and salted popcorn’ to end.

    One of my friends celebrated her birthday at the Black Lion Pub.
    Firstly we had nice dinner and afterwards we enjoyed their live jazz evening. I loved it, superb night.
    p.s I want to give a praise to their Raspberry fool dessert. The best dessert so far!

    Fun venue, classic pub dishes and definitely a good option if you want to hang around for some drinks later into the evening. Lively, busy – what a great night!
