Time until visiting your local will be back to the way it should
The Dorset is one of Harvey & Son’s oldest pubs, built in 1670 on the site of an illegal workhouse, and is about 100 steps from the famous Bridge Wharf brewery. Parts of the original building still form areas of the pub today.
We're located under the famous 'Cliffe' at the lower end of Lewes town centre, close to the South Downs Way and just a stones throw from Brighton. With lots of room it's a great family pub, walkers are welcome and if you're a cyclist we've always got somewhere to store your bike. We have 6 ensuite bedrooms, all are comfortable and good value, with free WiFi, a TV and a late night security card entrance. Book your room today.
Head Chef Michael Bennett and his team create delicious pub classics using local suppliers and there's definitely something for everyone. Sandwiches, great veggie and vegan options, child portions of all our main meals and our function menus.
We serve food Monday to Friday, 12-3pm, 6-9pm, Saturday from 11am - 9pm and on Sundays we add traditional roast dinners and serve between 12pm-4pm.
