Places to eat in Lewes

Lewes is not just about historic buildings and beautiful gardens, it is also home to many great places to eat. There is loads of good food to be found within Sussex, and Lewes is no different. While it might be hard to outdo the bustling city of Brighton nearby, Lewes offers a number of quality eateries in a relaxed and scenic setting. We’ve list a few suggestions below to give you some ideas for your next dinner spot!

The Pelham Arms offers classic food with a touch of modern flare. Whether its sandwiches, burgers, platters or traditional pub dishes you are looking for, the Pelham Arms will have something to your taste. In this great pub in the heart of Lewes, England’s best dishes can be found, as well as imports from around the world. The restaurant is also proud to celebrate local suppliers, and was the first pub in Lewes to smoke its own meats!

The Snowdrop Inn is a family and dog friendly pub offering an array of quality food and live music on Saturdays and jazz on Mondays, making this a great spot who fancy some post-dinner entertainment! This pub puts on a host of events throughout the year, such as a sports day, a dog show and a beer festival celebrating some great local breweries.

If you are after a quick bite the Erawan Thai Bistro is a good choice, providing an extensive menu full of genuine and authentic Thai dishes, or to sample another cuisine, Le Magasin offers a sample of great European dishes.

For a taste of Italy in the heart of Lewes, head down to Famiglia, which as the name suggests, puts on Italian style family food at a great price. Pop into this great spot on Market Street to find pastas, pizzas and all your Italian favourites.

For a final suggestion in the centre of Lewes, The Rights of Man Pub serves as another good choice. This ale house and kitchen offers quality food and a selection of great drinks, including beers from Harvey’s Brewery, the last remaining of Lewes’ Victorian breweries, as well as a wide range of gins.

With all this incredible food to sample, this beautiful town makes a great destination for a cottage holiday, so get in touch with us to book your Lewes accommodation today!
