We visited for lunch and were very happy with the beer, the excellent food and the friendly staff. The pub has a great atmosphere and is the real deal not some made over gastro-pub charging too much for too little!

(Sadly) We had just had a short stay at The Lewes Arms and we enjoyed the local ale, it's just awesome; and this ale itself, is worth a trip to lewes. The staff is very friendly and served all the people with humor and happiness. I hope that we'll come back soon.

We visited on weekend of major concert in lewes and the pub was very very busy. The staff were happy and engaged all customers in a happy helpful way making the service first class. There was over one hour wait for food however with good beer on hand this was not a problem. The food was well worth waiting for and I would definitely recommend it. This is a proper pub and it was a joy to spend time there.

A great pub that is an excellent introduction to this arty vibrant little town. The food is good value, excellent pub food but don't expect fine dining. The beer is a bit expensive but well kept and there are plenty to choose from. The food can be a bit hit-and-miss and depends a bit on who is in the kitchen on the night you are there. All-in-all though, if you are looking for a real pub in Lewes this is where you need to be.

My husband was originally from Lewes & so we popped in one evening when visiting the area. Small bar area with a great selection of real ales, popular with locals & visitors alike. Stayed for one and watched the morris dancers outside. Liked the sound of the menu, the helpful staff and the welcoming atmosphere so came back the next night for food in the room adjoining the bar, although there is another dining area upstairs. The specials board had changed overnight, which was good to see as so many pubs have the same specials all year round. Difficult to make a choice so came back to eat again a couple of nights later. The food is real proper pub food, well prepared and generous portions. We will definitely come back for food again and maybe even try the beer garden next time.
