I go to the new(ish) one in Western Road, where the greengrocer used to be . Nice bloke, reasonable prices, good cuts and you can book a time slot online, so there's no queuing. But they're all pretty good - I haven't had a bad haircut in Lewes, so I just look at the convenience and price.

Well, there's plenty of people with shocking hair in Lewes - someone must be responsible for barbering some of them, at least!
Personally, I love the idea of rating a barber by the "banter". Good grief.

By "banter" they mean crass misogynistic jokes or remarks followed up with football chit-chat

Riverside barbers - top quality cuts, and very nice people to boot.

I can give you a good cut, see me at the riverside

Riverside is pricey. To me, at least. I suppose it boils down to what you want. As a young man I wanted something haircut that would increase my pulling power and I was happy to pay for it. Today, I'm just a dried up husk, with a pathetically thinning head of hair, so price and convenience are my only criteria. Didn't Jason used to work at Andy and Marvin's?

The new Cascades is a good spot, they are reasonably priced and always make sure discerning gentleman are supplied with a bit of 'something for the weekend Sir'. Lots of lads mags on the table as well. If your hair is thinning I suggest you don't go there as you may be too old for the place.

I didn't move to Lewes to listen to inane banter. Isn't there somewhere with polite,smart and respectful staff and skill with scissors or is that too much to expect.

@ Tim, it is curious how so many male barbers often have the kind of haircuts that a hillbilly vagrant would don. This does not give me great confidence...rather like a personal trainer with spare tyres and a double chin.

Not enough hairdressers in Lewes IMO. I'm sure I saw Avante Garde advertising for 'models' - will be cheap and people are fully supervised. And there really can't be that much to cutting men's hair surely? A zip over with a number two and a massage should leave most men satisfied.

Been to most of them and settled on Jason's. Jason and Hazel do a good cut at a good price and with good banter! You can also book online and see how many people are waiting on a webcam.

I judge a barber by his own Barnet. My advise is pop your head in to each of them and see whose you like the look of.

'Good banter'? A reason to avoid the place then. Enoch Powell, with whom I disagreed about most things rightly replied when asked how he wanted his haircut, 'In silence'. There's nothing worse than barber's banal banter. Even worse than London cabbies.

Jeff, why would you want to 'boot' your barber, surely if it's a good cut give them a tip?
Who would want to be a barber in Lewes if this is what you do, another local custom?
