Robson's is a little gem on the High Street. Breakfast ,lunch or tea and they cater for everyone. Menu or daily specials to tempt adults and kids alike and all budgets. It does get very busy, space is at a premium at lunch and in summer has a few outside tables. Hubby and I had a lovely cream tea with... More

Ate here earlier today. I had a lovely cheese, tuna and pasta bake. My partner had soup of the day which came with a nice roll. Both were excellent and served piping hot. It's popular in there, so you may have to wait for a table at peak times, but it's worth the wait. Good value.

Went for lunch today with my sister. Just popped in as we were passing. I ate Brie, Bacon and Cranberry panini, which was served with crisps and coleslaw. It tasted lovely, and the service was friendly and efficient. The only negative was the toilet. If they paid as much attention to the loo, as to the food, it would improve... More

This place never fails to provide a yummy simple lunch for around £6. Less fancy than other Lewes places and all the better for it. Breakfast options are also good!

Been three times now with my rather fussy mother. Decent tea, nice cakes and great milkshakes + friendly staff. Better and more welcoming than Lewesiana.

Visited here with friends a couple of weeks back. The places that we initially planned to eat at were full, but this place had space and turned out to be really nice, despite being a little uninviting from outside. Food was fine and decent value and the staff we friendly too. Well worth a visit.

Decided to pop into Robsons for lunch whilst antique hunting in Lewes, and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff were friendly, the food fresh and tasty (and quick to arrive considering they were busy), and the prices very reasonable. Will visit again when next in town.
