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 dropped in by chance at 2.30 0n a Sunday to find the restaurant still open. And what a restaurant in a fine old late 18th century wood pannelled room. This is going to cost an arm and a leg I thought as we were shown to our table by the dignified maitre d'hotel. I was quite wrong; although not... More

The food was actually not that bad, but it did not really have any presentation..poor vegetarian options and not very high standards overall.

The carpets on approach to the hotel were greasy and blackened. I am obviously disabled and on arrival I was told that my room was up some stairs and to the right - no assistance offered with bags. On entering the room, I could see how tired this was and when I opened the drawer to place clothing in it... More

Only did breakfast but it was everything you need from a "Full English" Cereal choice fruits, toast etc and to drink T & C, plus including Yummy buttery continental pastries and small roast potatoes. Hearty Breakfast might just cover it.

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.
