The cup of Manchester mushroom soup was outstanding; the pork was extremely tough and flavorless. The potatoes were good but the green beans were not cleaned and the stems were left on. The rolls (looked like slider buns) were brought at the end of the meal. This is not usually the case for this restaurant. Overall, very disappointed.

Invited to this popular Lewes watering hole by new found friends. Atmosphere superb. A little touch of the British Isles. Food equally British in character - bangers/ mash, shepherd's pie, chicken pot pie, fish and chips, etc. Room left on menu for local seafood favorites as well. Many craft beers available as specialty drinks - Sangria made with hard cider,... More

Very quaint comfy place to eat or enjoy a Happy Hour. Located in the tourist street of Lewes so fill up, take a stroll or kick back and relax. Kid & family friendly.

Stopped in for happy hour and enjoyed some wine along with a fried calamari appetizer. The coating was crisp and the calamari was tender. Two thumbs up! However, I ordered the fish and chips, another fried food item, which was not good for my tummy. It tasted great and the fries were crispy until I added too much malt vinegar... More

Great restaurant located in the Hotel Rodney in Lewes. You can get to it from the street or directly from the hotel without going outside. We were not hotel guests, just looking for a good restaurant without spending a fortune. They have a back area in the restaurant where you can sit away from the bar area or you can... More

I had the crab cakes. They were dry and burnt on the bottom. The crab inside was dry and brown. It came with dill garlic red skinned potatoes. Three of us had them. They had a peculiar flavor. We told the waitress we couldn't eat them. She did bring us mashed potatoes as a substitute. One diner though they were... More

It's nice to see at least one restaurant stays open on Sunday nights in Lewes. We eat here frequently when in Lewes and it's consistently good. Tonight the blue burger and sweet potatoes fries were served hot and were delicious. She had the chicken pot pie which creamy and delicious. The Guinness stout was cold and always good. Always friendly... More

My husband and I stopped for an early appetizer and drinks and enjoyed the English Pub atmosphere. The sangria was to die for, they had both red and white (my dfavorite was the white with apples and cinnamon), the red had cranberries and orange. The half price appetizers were a meal in itself. Would definately recommend after a busy day... More
