A very cold day, with a splendidly warm welcome at the Dorset Arms. Our family party of four adults enjoyed an excellent lunch. Recommend the Dorset Sharing Plate for £12.50 as a starter. Olives, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, humous, peppers, various salads, pita...really good selection for four of us. Main meals all under £10, veggie or beef burgers, risotto, Fish +... More

My partner and I stayed here for a local wedding. We had been recommended by the wedding party so booked. The hotel is a pub really but a very nice one. Very oldy worldy furnished and a very warm welcome. In general the food and bar area was very nice. The rooms were lovely. The bathroom was dated and had... More

We were a little disapointed with our weekend that we booked here. The room was a little small (but admittedly at the time of booking the owner proposed a larger room at £10 extra per night) and very tired. It was in need of touching up/redecorating and had a couple of problems such as the bathroom handle hanging off and... More

Visited the Dorset for one night. Had a great night and the evening meal was nice proper home cooked food. The staff were really friendly and served you promptly and with a smile (which is a rare thing nowadays ). The breakfast was fantastic and set us up nicely for a day in Lewes.

The rooms aren't spectacular but then you wouldn't expect it at this price point. They are quite big and noise wasn't a problem after 11pm despite it being a pub. Very powerful showers which is always important. The breakfast was great with a massive full English of decent quality, didn't really need much lunch! Staff were very helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed Two nights at The Dorset last Friday and Saturday while in Lewes for a Wedding party and found the staff very welcoming and friendly. Our bedroom was large, with a comfortable bed, although it was only a standard size Double! There was lots of wardrobe space and heaps of drawers and even the bedside tables were a great... More

An excellent 2 nights at the Dorset. The room was large, clean & comfortable, with very friendly, helpful staff. The food is very good and the rooms, suprisingly quiet considering this is a pub. Fantastic value for money, highly recommended.

We have loved the stay in the Dorset Inn, good room, good service, very good meals! I just found this place on the internet, and booked it by email. I received a friendly and quick answer. The menu made me decide to choose this place, and that was not a disappointment. The local beer from the brewery nearby was excellent... More
