The food is filling and high quality, and the bar is pleasant and warming. The only issues are that the seating is limited, and meals often run out quickly.

My favourite pub in Lewes, or indeed all of Sussex. Great choice of drinks, super cosy, great activities going on outside on May Day, very friendly landlord.

We had a lovely time at the Lewes Arms after a visit to the Castle. Delicious Sunday roast by the fire, friendly staff, very good beer. Not fancy as many gastropubs, feels like a proper local, but with great quality and atmosphere. We recommend.
