The Snowdrop Inn was named to commemorate the Lewes Avalanche of 1836, one of the worst natural disasters in British history.


Since 2009 The Snowdrop Inn has been run by Dominic McCartan & Tony Leonard, who also run the Roebuck Inn in the nearby village of Laughton. The Snowdrop has a somewhat checkered history, having achieved legendary status in the 1990s under the stewardship of Sue and Tim May when Herbie Flowers, Arthur Brown and Lene Lovich all performed here and John Peel numbered it among his favourite pubs.


The Snowdrop Inn is family-friendly, welcomes dogs and we have two pub gardens to enjoy when weather allows. We have a full programme of events including live music most Saturday and Jazz every Monday. Every year, we hold a beer festival curated by Burning Sky head brewer, Mark Tranter, as part of Lewes OctoberFeast’s annual celebrations. We are proud to be the headquarters of South Street Bonfire Society and every August we stage South Street Sports Day and Fun Dog Show, followed in the evening by Alternative Miss Snowdrop, a tradition we have revived from the 90s.
