We visited recently for lunch, we had not been before and took a chance. We can't praise it enough, the service was brilliant and very quick for our meal to arrive. The portions were generous, good quality and good value. The staff on duty were very attentive. After lunch, we went out into their outdoor area to finish our drinks,... More

We felt very welcome in this pub with good pub food and a big array of games. We came back during the same trip because we had a good time. Thank you.

Fantastic pub in Lewes High St serving excellent selection of real ales. Promotes locally produced beers (Harveys brewery less than 1/2 mile away so would be rude not to serve their wonderful ales!!) and usually about 6 ales on tap. Don't forget to show your CAMRA membership for small discount on beers. 2 bar areas: the front (leading out to... More

Any down side created by the 'Winchester Arms' style ambience, is more than counteracted by the friendliness of the bar staff and the quality of the food. YES this is a pub stuck in the 1970's, BUT the staff and the food make it well worth a visit. The barman cheerfully took my food order despite being close to kitchen... More

Visited with a few friends and family for a pint of Harvey's Best. Very friendly staff together with a great atmosphere and we therefore felt obliged to stay for a few more. A proper pub well worth a visit.

As a family of four we all had different meals - all were excellent. Very reasonably priced, proper pub food without a jus in sight. The service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxed - will be back next time I am in the area.

We ate here on Sunday afternoon having chosen it because of it's good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. A small, busy and obviously much loved local, it provided really tasty home cooked food at very reasonable prices. Best vegetables I've ever had with a roast. Nice to see too that they source quite a few of their ingredients... More
