It's nice to see at least one restaurant stays open on Sunday nights in Lewes. We eat here frequently when in Lewes and it's consistently good. Tonight the blue burger and sweet potatoes fries were served hot and were delicious. She had the chicken pot pie which creamy and delicious. The Guinness stout was cold and always good. Always friendly... More

My husband and I stopped for an early appetizer and drinks and enjoyed the English Pub atmosphere. The sangria was to die for, they had both red and white (my dfavorite was the white with apples and cinnamon), the red had cranberries and orange. The half price appetizers were a meal in itself. Would definately recommend after a busy day... More

My wife and I stopped in for mid afternoon drinks and a bite to eat and found the Rose and crown an excellent choice. We actually stumbled upon the pub, restaurant and were so pleased with our find. The drinks were perfect and the appetizers were wonderful. We were exploring downtown Lewes and we will certainly stop for dinner in... More

We went off season do there wasn't a big crowd. Service was great and all the food we had was very tasty. They have a wide beer and drink selection.

My wife and I have anticipated the Rose and Crown for quite a while as she is from Great Britain and they market themselves as a "British Pub." As a local we waited for the summer crowds to leave and finally made the trip along with my Scottish mother in law. For starters, the poorly lit parking lot had parking... More

Enjoyed a Guinness and their excellent pot roast recently. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked. The gravy was peppery and rich. Huge portions included roasted potatoe and green beans. She had the crab cakes which were also delicious. Highly recommended if you want great food and service in a relaxed pub atmosphere.

My wife & I had lunch here the other day. The service was very friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere quite nice- we had a booth in the bar. The food was excellent. We had bangers and a crab cake sandwich, with beer. We'd go back in a heartbeat. Price was OK too.

Not worth investing much type. No one bothered to seat us but a patron clued us in, "You are on your own." Server should have stayed home. Food was not bad if "medium rare" is the same as "well done." Many, better options near by. Keep walking.

Stopped in for Happy Hour and enjoyed atmosphere in the bar. The bartender was very friendly and provided great service. The happy hour choices were not that great, so decided to have a few drinks and move on for dinner. Will definitely stop by again and try some of the food options

We enjoy the atmosphere and food. Great casual dining with simple, good food. Bar is great asset. Can usually get seated when other restaurants in town have many hour wait.
