|With my football teams game at Lewes being postponed due to the wet weather it was decided to travel to Lewes anyway and tick the 5 pubs in the town that were on my list.|
Our 1st stop after a 15 minute walk was the Snowdrop, a very busy free house.
I'd been told this was a food pub and this is very true. By 12.30pm the majority of the punters in the pub were ordering food or eating.
On the bar there are 6 pumps dispensing 5 cask ales and 1 cider. All of the ales from different breweries including the dependable Harvey's Sussex Best. I started the day with a pint of Blackjack Brewery Shuffled Deck @ 3.8%. A cracking pint that unforateluy was so good that by the time I wanted a 2nd it had run out, so my 2nd beer was Bristol Beer Factory’s Milk Stout @ 4.5%, another decent drop. In addition to the ales there are several pumps offering good quality “craft” lager and also a good bottle range.
Inside the pub is pretty quirky with lots of bits and bobs hanging from the ceiling these include a couple of surfboards!
Outside there are 2 garden areas but with the rain hammering down these were not the place to be.
Even though food was being served I only saw a couple of plates of chips pass me so I cannot comment how good the food is however it was certainly popular.
All in all the Snowdrop is a smashing pub and a great place to start the day’s ticking trip.

|The Snowdrop has a certain Brighton/Lewesian boho charm about it but feels friendly enough. Bar Staff are a credit, the food looked generous as it sped past us (we were in a hurry) and the beer was delicious - they do Belgians in bottles as well - so worth a visit...|

|Tucked away but worth the effort to find.|
Friendly and helpful staff and very good beer.
A worthy inclusion on any trip to Lewes.

|Pub number 6 on our Lewes pub crawl, and yet another great pub for the real ale drinker. My first pint, which was one of the Titanic ales, was actually rather cloudy. However, the barman unhesitatingly changed it for another beer at no charge, even though I'd necked half of it. Interesting music on the sound system at a sensible volume. We were greeted by The End by the Doors on our arrival, and this was followed by a selection of what I believe is referred to as "New Country". Interestingly, there was a good balance between the sexes among the clientele, which makes a nice change from the usual male-dominated pub environment. The menu looked good with some interesting dishes such as oxtail and rabbit. Probably the friendliest barman we encountered on our crawl.|
