Went for dinner with my wife on Valentine's night.The pub was very busy but, we were seated very quickly.The waitress took our order and the food arrived quickly.I couldn't fault it. It was very well presented and piping hot.John even manage to rustle us up two fruit salads which wasn't listed on the menu.

We were looking for a typical b & b to stay in Lewes. Found The Chalk Pitt Inn on the internet and it looked lovely. On arriving, the pub was closed and along came the manager and pointed us in the direction of two Butlins chalet type rooms behind the pub. First impression was the horrible damp smell in the...

This Inn is located in a wonderful most scenic area and the building itself is nice looking from the outside. However it is incredibly dirty on the inside, very tired looking, very dark and just overall a disgusting place. Unfortunately we also stayed the night in one of the horrifically dirty rooms which apparently included breakfast but at breakfast time... More

We rented out the beautiful land of Chalk Pitt Inn for our festival styled wedding reception in Sept 13. We can't begin to say how magical and perfect the space is nestled delightfully in Lewes, so much potential for creativity and good times. John the owner and his wife couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating of our needs giving... More

We stayed here for one night as we attended a wedding nearby. I initially chose the chalk pit as it was good value for money. The pictures of the rooms on the website didn't look amazing but we didn't care as only needed it as a place to stay. The room was what you see is what you get. They... More

Used restaurant and bar only and received good friendly service, with a good selection of food, both on menu and blackboard of the day available. Food not over priced. Location outside of Lewes with plenty of parking. Pity that the toilets are typical of many British pubs in that they are in need of urgent refurbishment.

I was attending Plumpton College for Viticulture classes and was looking for accomodation nearby in Lewes, England. I came upon this little Inn and Pub and booked a room for 3 days. There are chalk cliffs surrouning the property, farmlands across the country road and a great Pub with actually pretty darn good food. One night I was looking for... More

Family of five needing accomodation for a wedding, looking at two rooms cost running into hundreds of pounds. Found the Chalk Pit inn for £50 per room. Absolute bargain. Staff friendly and helpful. Keys left in door for us. Came and went as we pleased. Breakfast fabulous. Rooms are not the Ritz but at that price you don't expect chandaliers... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently as we had been told it was a great place to stay. Sadly, it appears to have gone downhill. However, the staff were helpful and friendly and our room (in the 'chalet' block round the back) was lovely and private. The bedding was clean and the bed comfortable but the room wasn't as clean...
