Over the last 9 months we have held two business receptions here and on both occasions we have had excellent service. The plus point for this venue is the historic setting and rooms. The receptions were held in the 'Sheriff's Room' on the first floor which is reputed to be the room where Thomas Paine (author of 'The Rights of Man') spoke at the 'Headstrong Club in the 18th century on subjects like the American Revolution. The building was originally a town house owned by the Pelham family from Tudor times. In the 17th C they moved and the White Hart has been an inn since then. It was an important coaching inn until the railway arrived in Lewes. The former High Constable of Lewes used to hold his annual feast here.

Originally booked here but changed booking to Pelham House after reading reviews on Tripadvisor.Thought we would at least have a meal and see what we missed.Nothing is the answer.Surly staff,poor quality food and presentation and overpriced.No wonder it was empty.

Food was well cooked and plentiful.
Excellent value.
We ate smoked salmon and Soup for starters.
I had lamb chops and my partner pork for mains.
I had cheese board and my partner Eton Mess for dessert.
No complaint and plentiful.

uneatable, best avoided if you want to live a long and healthy life. the back entrance to the kitchen looks positively dangerous

Good menu choice, well prepared, cooked and presented. Very traditional classic service style. Nice to get warm rolls, iced water without asking
