So let me start by saying that since discovering Hearth mid last back in August last year, we ordered from there pretty regularly sometimes 2-3 times a week. Food wise everything is usually really good and the Pizza's are great. They used to do various deals on weekdays which were one of the main reasons we ordered so frequently, the... More

We popped in here for lunch with our toddler. I have bought bread from the bakery downstairs before which has always been excellent so I had high hopes for the pizzeria. It didn't disappoint. We had the meatballs and garlic mushrooms to start with the Turkish Flatbread. This was the Star of the show with the amazing Syrian paste giving... More

I grew up in Italy and my wife is from Naples. This is one of the best pizzerias I've ever eaten at, anywhere. The pizza is the real deal, the atmosphere is welcoming and authentically unpretentious and the service is brilliant. It's also fairly priced.

Gorgeous food and lovely atmosphere, with the continental rustic feel and old-school jukebox. I was especially excited by the salad I got with my lasagna and the tiramisu that came with coffee liqueur to pour over it. My partner really enjoyed the Lebanese-style spicy lamb pieces on the pizza. We got pizza and sausage rolls to take on a picnic... More

My daughter has eaten here many times in the past and as part of our group yesterday, agreed that the food and service have deteriorated significantly. At 6.30pm on a Saturday, the noise from loud music and a plethora of children was deafening – rather apt as I found the hard, shabby décor and less than inviting toilets reminiscent of... More

Turned up without a booking on a busy Saturday night and the excellent manager managed to fit us in. Sourdough pizza was excellent - side salad complemented the American hot. It's quirky, with friendly staff. Good atmosphere! Will return but next time I'll book! No doubt the best pizza in Lewes.

If you like proper pizza, go here. It's fabulous. If you're not a true pizza lover, and will consider "slightly burnt" as being a negative feature, as I can see a previous reviewer did, then toddle along to one of the many generic places selling tasteless frozen dough rubbish. Best pizza I have tried in the UK. Friendly relaxed atmosphere... More
