The Dorset (sometimes known as The Dorset Arms) is a large Harveys pub and hotel in the Cliffe area of Lewes – so slightly away from the central area.
The older area at the Malling Street entrance of the pub has two distinct area. There is a small snug bar on the right and a more open area on the left which opens out behind the bar into a larger and newer area. The older two areas are separated by an attractive wooden screen with coloured glazing.
Harveys Best is available all the time plus a couple of other beers from the Harveys selection including the monthly seasonal. Considering the Dorset’s proximity to the Harveys Brewery the beer quality was a little disappointing.
Food is available at lunchtimes and evenings but I have not eaten here – apart from the very reasonably priced peanuts.
On my last visit during an evening pub crawl of Lewes I was practically the only customer in the Dorset. I’m sure with all that space it must get busier at certain times.
