Good in parts

Both parts of the main restaurant are attractive, the inner room with wood panelling and the 'conservatory' which is pretty and has lovely views over Lewes and the South Downs. There is music played on a keyboard from about 1 o'clock. Sunday lunch is basically a carvery and the chef does know... read more

We had booked, fortunately, as much of the seating area was taken up with a large family gathering. We were given a table for two in the modern extension, with a view towards the sea and the curvaceous South Downs. The waiting staff were friendly, courteous, prompt and non-intrusive. The roast meats were superb and excellent value at £10 a... More

This place is excellent. We were strolling through Lewis on a tourist trip, when we spotted this pub (not realizing it was a proper hotel restaurant deal). What enticed us is the fact that Thomas Paine used to hatch his evil plans and drink here. Now for the experience inside: We first entered the place to be greeted by a... More

I had not eaten in The White Hart for many years. I found it very much improved. These days the staff are notably younger, well motivated, professional and far more welcoming. The Sunday carvery is offered in an imposing wood-panelled room with a good view of the South Downs. The serving point was manned by three chefs who were rightly... More

Food excellent and views spectacular. It would be lovely to eat on the terrace on a warm day - sit there enjoying the south downs with a glass of wine, etc.

Came with large thick chips, mushrooms a tomato & salad. I had ice cream & my partner had the cheese board for last course.... More

Yes it was a small menu, but by no means lacking in substance, it wasn't a case of I'll have this because I don't want the other options, the chef and kitchen were in the room, the quality of the food was fantastic and waitress was stop on and very attentive without being to present. Great value for money

See main review. Chef was tops when we were there with a salmon and trout starter. Chicken dish was first class; chef told me sources from Scotland. Only cost £20 or so for two courses

Atmospheric old coaching inn in the centre of Lewes. Not busy for a Friday lunch - perhaps some of the reviews on here have put people off. We were very pleasantly surprised though. We ate in the traditional wood panelled dining room, but there is also an light and airy atrium with great views. A short "informal" lunch menu with... More

£10 is excellent value and nice ambiance. Service attentive and helpful on Bonfire night when all other eateries were full.
