Had a small gathering of work mates here for Christmas, very good food served efficiently in a friendly boozer with a lovely local ambiance and amazingly good value. The Brewers is still one of my favourites, well done gang.

Stopped for lunch here. First visit. Freezing cold day but a warm welcome. Food was excellent with homemade soup and sandwiches. Cooked lunches looked lovely too.

Had an excellent few days in Lewes. Due to lack of demand the hotel restaurant was closed on the second night. Hotel food had been ok, if a little pricey, but meant we had to find somewhere else to eat. Using TripAdvisor we chose the...More
