Welcome to The Royal Oak, Lewes

The Royal Oak is a smart, contemporary pub in the heart of the historic and quintessentially English town of Lewes; the picturesque County town of East Sussex.
We have a lovely outside drinking area, perfect for those sunny days, while ‘Upstairs at The Oak’ you will find a spacious Function Room, complete with its own bar and two large, flat screen TVs. It is ideal for parties, meetings, presentations and private events.
Follow us on Social Media for updates on offers (such as our Monday Night Fish Fry), Live Music and other events.

Great Food

Our Kitchen may be small, but that doesn’t stop us from providing a lovely selection freshly prepared dishes. Where possible we use  locally sourced ingredients and offer an enticing range of small plates, sandwiches and main meals, along with a selection of Pub Classics.
Light bites include Deep Fried Calamari and our richly indulgent Chicken Liver Pate. If you are looking for something more substantial the Roast Cauliflower, Sweet Potato & Spinach Vegan Curry is incredibly popular, and the Boss is a big (BIG!) fan of the Slow Braised Pork & Toulouse Sausage Cassoulet. There is always a hearty, home-made soup and at least one seasonal salad on the menu too.
Set just off the High Street, The Royal Oak is the ideal location for lunch. And as the evenings draw in, we offer the perfect spot to settle in with a nice bottle of wine and spoil yourself. After all, you deserve it!

Great Ales, Craft Beers, Wines & Spirits

We love beer! Our five, traditional cask ales always feature at least one local brew, while our keg range includes craft beers and cider. Wines and spirits have been carefully selected and our offer includes a large range of artisan gins, which we serve with a choice of Fever Tree tonics, along with some fantastic whiskeys and rums. We also shake a mean Cocktail! 20% off Wednesday & Thursday 7-8pm.
We are a great place for a coffee and a catch up with friends too, and use freshly ground beans from local roasters Pharmacie, along with teas and a range of infusions.
