I;m a big fan of the Snowdrop. Great beer, friendly service, charming location.

Plus points is they were playing I Am Kloot when we were in their and they have a poster up with an old Eden Kane gig on it. Quality.

Contender for best pub in Lewes if you ask me.

6 pumps available for also, only 4 on, but it is Wednesday evening. All 4 beers were very pale in colour and very citrus in flavour. There is still a demand from ale drinkers for a traditional copper in colour and not tasting like grapefruit or lemons. That said, the 2 I drank were well kept.
The pub is very pleasant, good food, friendly, but needed a better variety of beers for their customers who have walked that bit further out of the town. Plus point that in Lewes it is NOT a Harveys pub, so there is a free trade in town.

The Snowdrop was my last and favourite pub of the day. It is situated in a residential area of Cliffe with a fairly dramatic chalk cliff backdrop. It's also next to a lengthy tunnel that leads to the other end of Lewes. The interior feels cosy. But there are plenty of tables crammed in. There are also 2 outdoor areas either side of the pub. Both have several tables too. The ale selection was good and was complemented by a good range of craft beers on keg. Yesterday they had Harveys Sussex Best Bitter, Burning Sky Aurora & Plateau, Downlands Twent Six Strong Pale Ale & Thirteen Pale Ale & 360 Degrees Pale Ale on cask. Cider was Seacider Medium. The best pub we tried in Lewes.

In any other town this size this pub would be a godsend, in Lewes it's probably not worth the walk out of the town centre (when you've got the JHT, Lewes Arms and Gardeners already). The Snowdrop has good beer, nice decor, but feels a bit too foody if you're only drinking (and the food is nice but not amazing if you're eating).

IMHO food not as good as the Lewes Arms, but a real variety of stouts when I went, great little pub
