The Team behind the kings have refurbished the pub, pulling up the swirling 80’s carpets to restore the beautiful wooden floors and the low ceilings.  This green-gabled community pub close to the ruins of the Lewes Priory, the Tudor Grange gardens and Anne of Cleeves House. 

Our cuisine is traditional British heritage with a modern twist . So expect free-range, seasonal and sustainable produce with local affiliations.  However, most importantly we are first and foremost  a pub or boozer, that just happens to be enthusiastic about its food. Enjoy !

What people say about us
The Good Food Guide 2012 (The only place in Lewes to get featured in the guide)
 “Traditional wooden floors and low ceilings belie a thoroughly modern culinary approach that does full justice to free-range, seasonal and sustainable produce….pure flavours are allowed to shine in the starter of the wild rabbit rillette…..unctuous pot-roasted belly of pork, succulent skirt steak….exemplary hazelnut tart “ rates us #1 of 23 restaurants in Lewes – 22/11/11
