Atmospheric old coaching inn - better than some of these reviews suggest

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... read 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

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

Had a lunch time snack, with friends earlier this year and food was average but service was poor. Staff need some customer service training. Would like to take friends here from out of area, but too embarrassed by service. Will not risk it again.

I cannot agree more with Byron (see his review). Food horrid, staff unpleasant and surly. They just couldn't care less. Don't touch with a bargepole.

The receptions were held in the 'Sheriff's Room' on the first floor which is reputed to be the room where Thomas Paine (author of 'The Rights of... More

Originally booked here but changed booking to Pelham House after reading reviews on Tripadvisor.Thought we would at least have a meal and see what we missed.Nothing is the answer.Surly staff,poor quality food and presentation and overpriced.No wonder it was empty.
