    A well-run pub with rooms

    Functional pub with rooms set-up. Masses of (paid) parking spaces, a short walk to the centre of Lewes. For a night or two, it ticks all the boxes.

    My impression of the decor was that it was a little uncoordinated, but that certainly did not affect out stay which met all our needs in spades!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We liked the location in the centre of Lewes, although parking was tricky on a Saturday afternoon in the public car park. We liked the clean rooms and the friendly staff. We would have preferred a kettle in the room instead of a coffee maker as we like tea. Breakfast was continental but plenty of choice.
