Will be back! Lovely, comfortable atmosphere. Warm welcome, nice beers on offer and the food was the nicest surprise; very tasty soup with a herb cream; a rather strange take on fish and chips but I worked and was well cooked and delicious! Had to go looking for someone to order a desert but again this was very nice. Quite... More

Came here unexpectedly as as the snowdrop in Lewes ran out of food before we could order! So we went to its sister pub The Roebuck which wasn't too busy luckily so we got a table with no notice. Fantastic menu lots of exciting things I wanted! Everyone's starter was really tasty with good sized portions - I went for... More

Really nice meal and nice staff. I must admit I was slightly anxious after reading some reviews but I can honestly say it was a really pleasant meal. Good sized portions and a unique menu with a good selection of beers.

Went here for dinner Friday evening. The function room was lovely, decorated very well. Food was good. Not the best I've had out but very nice considering how many of us there were eating. Would eat there again definately! We had about four options to choose from for each course and all were very nice.

I fear I have to correct my last review as I have been somewhat disappointed with the Roebuck recently. It started when they were serving a local beer, that my boyfriend and I were both familar with. Well what we were served was not the same beer. I am not even sure it was beer - it smelt and tasted... More

We had a lovely stay at the Roebuck on a one night stay over. We were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our room (rooms are in an annex so there wouldn't be any pub noise). The room was very functional with a few nice touches but in my opinion needs softening a little. Having no TV was... More

Drop in here most weekends, great selection of local beers and ciders. Lovely Sunday lunch at a reasonable price, very friendly, the decor is rather quirky, definitely different, just wish I was male do I could see the 'Gents' toilets!!

Friday night, the car park was full, pub was empty. From the moment we walked in the door it was unwelcomeing we felt like we were interrupting the staff, it was ages before anyone took our order. But the food arrived quickly and was excellent. But no one asked if every thing was ok and we had to work hard... More

Well firstly one can note that TripAdvisor's listing for "The Roebuck" is erroneous, as the pub is located in Laughton, a village outside Ringmer; not in Lewes nor the Lewes area. If it is also a hotel, as TripAdvisor seems to think, either this has come about in the last month since my last visit, or they do a very... More
