A village pub for every occasion
Located just 1 mile from the M23 and Pease Pottage services, the Black Swan is the perfect example of a quality and friendly English village pub.
Family friendly with a large garden, function room, great food, drinks and coffee, a cosy bar and roaring fires, the Black Swan is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The pub, which dates back to the 19th century, had its name changed in the 1980s to ‘The James King’ by its then owners, King & Barnes brewery, but when Hall & Woodhouse acquired King & Barnes in 2001 they reinstated the ‘Black Swan’ as the name.
So whether you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, celebrate with friends and family, or break your journey to and from Brighton at somewhere more than just a basic service station, make sure you pay us a visit.
Monday – Saturday: 11:30am - 11:30pm
Sunday: 12:00pm - 10:30pm
It seemed a place where heroes could fitly feast after victory, where weary harvesters could line up in scores along the table and keep their Harvest Home with mirth and song, or where two or three friends of simple tastes could sit about as they pleased and eat and drink and talk in comfort and contentment.
Our delicious ‘Rocket Espresso’ has come from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters. It’s a combination of fantastic coffee and good ethics. This particular blend comprises 100% Arabica coffee beans from one farm in Colombia and a co-operative project in Peru, who work to directly benefit the families and communities involved.

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.
Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.
The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged. And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.
