The Dorset, a traditional pub with letting rooms, is located in the heart of historic Lewes and is ideal for walkers and cyclists travelling the South Downs Way. All our rooms are en suite, we have secure cycle storage facilities, a roaring fire during the winter months and a sun drenched patio in the summer. Parking is also available in the large pay and display car park situated in between us and Harveys Brewery; its free after 5pm and all day on Sundays. We look forward to seeing you.

Great local Lewes pub in the South Downs. Large central bar and a separate room which can be used for functions. Large outside patio garden which is glorious in the sunshine. Food is good and nice seating areas.
