The Pelham Arms is a traditional British public house situated at the top of Lewes High Street, serving local and seasonal food with a relaxed friendly service in charming surroundings. Built circa 1640, this quintessential Sussex pub has original oak beams, an inglenook fireplace, courtyard garden and is full of age-old charm. All the food is freshly prepared on the premises and The Pelham Arms is committed to using ingredients that have been ethically and responsibly produced, using only free range meats, local dairy and cheeses, free range eggs and poultry, organic grains, flours and pulses, locally caught fish and fair trade coffee and tea. The Pelham Arms take their real ale very seriously, and because of this your pint will always be top notch. The Pelham Arms are proud to be the only pub in Lewes serving fine ales from the Badger brewery.The wines have been carefully selected and include the local award winning sparkling wines from Ridgeview down the road in Ditchling and there is also an excellent range of organic juices and botanically brewed soft drinks.

6 of us visited The Pelham Arms for Mothering Sunday and had a brilliant time. None of us had visited before and so didn't know what to expect, however we were thoroughly pleased with the whole experience. The staff were all friendly and accommodating and the food was great - huge portions, definitely worth the money. We will be back again soon!

Pelham Arms has become our home from home. Its family friendly atmosphere means we always feel welcome - games for kids and good choice of beers and wines means all members are kept happy! Only small criticism would be more choice for kids on menu - plus a veggie option as my eight year old has decided she is vegetarian!

Our first visit came up to everything we could of wished for. The seating arrangement we requested was fully catered for, the friendly atmosphere, the delicious food, the friendly staff ,we could not have wished for more. We six family rarely get together (2 in OZ ) so this was extra special for me. A special thank you , Helen

Had an afternoon gathering at the Pelham Arms after getting married down the road. The initial organising was super easy & I felt confident they knew exactly what I wanted. On the day, everything went to plan. They put on a delicious spread of charcuterie, fish & cheese platters that everyone enjoyed, including kids & veggies. The presentation was excellent, and the service and ambience of the pub was spot on. Thank you for making the whole event so easy and pleasurable!
