7.1 / 10 at the time of writing... Surprising as I found this to be just an ordinary pub, nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either.

I stopped for one on a late Friday afternoon, had the obligatory Harvey's Best, which when perfect is an excellent best bitter! But, the beer was just like the pub, not great, but nothing really wrong with it either.

There are far better pubs in Lewes however.......

After a long day in Lewes and a lot of beer there was just enough time to finish off in this pub right by the station.

It was pretty packed around 8.30pm when we dropped in for a quick beer while we waited for the train.

Several ales on offer however the first pint we ordered was flat as a pancake and undrinkable, the barmaid didn't seem bothered about changing it so we spoke to the manager and after testing it disagreed it was ropey but he changed it regardless and we got a fresh pint which was perfect. This was Harvey’s Sussex Best.

Managed to get a seat by the door, the majority of the clientele were young adults…..mostly getting ready for a night on the town.

Not a bad pub for the station and will try again if I need a pint while waiting for a train.

This had some genuine charm in a student union kind of a way a few years ago but it was a little more of a generic by the station kind of pub on a recent visit. Decent enough even though there was an element of funkiness to the Harveys (on the cusp of the turn) but just about drinkable.

Not charmless by any means and worth popping your head it while running for an inevitably late running Southern service.

We had just enough time for a quick half each before our train and I plumped for Taylors Landlord which was OK but nothing exciting. This is a lively boozer which makes for a good first or last call bnefore the station. We didn't really get a chance to look round but it appeared more geared up more the younger drinker than our age group.

Wandered in here late last Friday and was surprised to find a young student crowd, was crowded and quite lively, staff were friendly, good atmosphere even if I did feel abit old. And of course an excellent pint of Harveys best, the good people of Lewes really are spoilt when it comes to having a fine local brew on tap.
