Chef/Patron Bruce Wass and his team of enthusiastic cooks offer fantastic, seasonal food, from lunchtime charcuterie plates & ploughmans with home made bread, to finely crafted dishes on the à la carte menu. The Jolly Sportsman provides a relaxed, friendly, professional meal experience. Fine cooking, not fine dining.

First visit to the Jolly Sportsman recommended by a friend- tricky to find but well worth trying. Very welcoming atmosphere, comfortable seating and eye-catching decor. Helpful and attentive staff. Great choice on the menu and delicious dishes. Throughly enjoyable evening. Do go.

We visited theJolly Sportsman after a night at the theatre in Lewes, so Kate very helpfully took our order via text to ensure the kitchen hadn’t closed by the time we arrived. Food, service from Ashley and ambience fabulous!

My favourite restaurant in the area. Always good, flavoursome food, menu of locally sourced produce, and excellent value set lunch menus.
