A Friday afternoon re-visit while in Lewes, on arrival early afternoon there was only 1 other punter in who was eating he’s fish and chips looked good. A short wait for the bar man / manager to serve us but when he did he was extremely jolly and helpful. 3 ales on which were Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter, Fuller's London Pride and Dark Star Hophead...the Harvey's Best was decent.

The King’s is a nice pub but with only one other punter in and the barman it was hard to tell whether it’s more of a restaurant than pub.
The décor is quite spartan and the leather sofas are battered, it doesn’t feel unloved but pub does feel like it’s a little bit forgotten.

An attractive antique tiled fireplace sit underneath a portrait of Anne of Cleaves.
Nice clean toilets, music playing, 3 ales on, friendly barman, the King’s appears to be a decent pub so hopefully in the evenings and weekends its a lot busier.

Haven't eaten here but the beer is fine, I agree though with the last reviewer it does have a restaurant feel

Fantastic food, well kept beer. Does feel a bit more like a relaxed restaurant than a pub, but nice anyway.

Ate here in October and have been meaning to post a review since. The food was the best pub food I have eaten in a long time. Above average prices, but well worth the money. Beer selection could be better though, usually only Harveys and one other on,

Definitely more for foodies than drinkers. I think they've madce a mistake in cramming in too many tables so everyone feels a bit cramped - still, we all know that's where the profits are. Have tried it a couple of times but never felt able to relax.
