We attended the pub after a recommendation. A nice pub. We selected 2 pints of cider. Upon drinking it very clear that it had turned with a vinegar taste. As a seasoned cider drinker it was the worst cide we had ever had. We asked...More

This was the first place we went to in Lewes and we felt right at home. Friendly, quirky, good beer, clean and comfortable. Is not cheap but so characterful. The food was good, gastro rather than pub grub, but definitely a stand out pub in...More

Had a celebratory family lunch at The Snowdrop today (Saturday) and food was perfect and the service was great. We have been here a few times and it's never disappointed yet so was surprised by some recent reviews below.

I've frequented this place a few times and I have to say this time we left not wanting to return. Grumble grumble...... The food we had was sub standard, split 'hollandaise' so it was basically butter. Overcooked soggy green beans. Oh and when you order...More

Finally got to go here after hearing about the amazing food. Very relaxed pub. Food was great (sausage and mash, minute steak for my companion). Sticky table though.

Been going to this pub for years and the food and drink has always been spot on, but recently the food has become terrible. Last few visits has been enough to put me off. Prices have gone up and quality has gone down. Shame.

We went there earlier in the year. Sadly, it has become a 'dog walkers' pub. I love dogs, but not sitting on peoples laps at the table - unhygienic. We have decided that we wont go back again, it was pretty chaotic, there... More
