Meet Us and a little bit about Findon

Mike and Lin Shiel - Landlord and Landlady of The Black Horse at Findon, Worthing, West Sussex

Introducing your hosts, Mike and Lin Shiel

Mike and Lin have many years experience in the hospitality trade and welcome you to The Black Horse at Findon. 

As some of the regulars may well be aware, over recent years, they have successfully run a traditional pub in Tarring Village, Worthing named the George and Dragon, on the basis of maintaining traditional British pub values, being family orientated and providing great food, service and a caring and individual attitude to the customers requirements.

Mike and Lin have brought this principle with them to continue to make The Black Horse a family orientated village pub with an ability to accommodate all customers from locals, families, visitors to the area and walkers with dogs.


Rob Byrne - Chef at The Black Horse Findon. West Sussex

Introducing our Chef, Rob Byrne - Mbii

Rob has been working for over 30 years in the industry from a very young age and has worked for the likes of Michel Roux Jnr and Marco Pierre White. He was previously head chef for Danny la Rue at the Swan at Streatley in Berkshire and also ex head chef at the Pelican Restaurant in Notting Hill. Having worked his way up through the pubs and restaurants in London, Rob became a freelance chef working for the likes of Interstate Hotels and the JHG Hotel Group,

Rob specialises in new openings and believes the industry needs to go back to grass roots and rebuild the pub food trade and re-introduce “old school” methods to enhance the skill sets of younger chefs, and brings a wealth of experience with him to The Black Horse at Findon for your enjoyment.

The Black Horse, Findon Village, West Sussex
A brief history of Findon where The Black Horse resides

The parish is on the slopes of and between two hills: Cissbury with its Iron Age hill fort to the east and a steep knoll Church Hill to the west. A further escarpment to the West and North stretches along the borders of the area. On the two named hills are remains of prehistoric flint mines where shafts were sunk about 40 feet (12 metres) to reach the best seams of flint which were mined from radiating galleries. The village is now bypassed by the A24 as it crosses the South Downs, which was constructed in 1938. A modern settlement to the south of the village, inside the boundary of the Borough of Worthing is called Findon Valley. The parish is settled as a nuclated village at between 39m and 84m above sea level and the South Downs rise to 170m and 181m to west and east respectively.
