It would appear that the new owners of the lamb are hellbent on taking the pub back in time to the 1990's. What a bunch of thoughtless bstard's. There's a reason the pub has been soooo of successful under the President of Cliffe.
No juke box
No pub games
A place for peeps to create and enjoy the ambiance, the atmosphere, have a proper conversation with real people and not the plastic population. Such a shame. Such a waste. How not to impress the lewes drinker!!!
There was a reason all the above were taken out of the lamb back in the day.
At least it may guarantee a 24 police presence in Lewes.
If it ain't broke...... et all!!!

Change is often difficult to accept, and no establishment can please all of the people all of the time. The costly adjustments and expansion of the customer experience at The Lamb would surely have been brought about only after carefully considering the broadest possible market reaction. When a need is commercially identified, who would not want to serve it for the benefit of customers and the business? In our experience, these additions are popular attractions for drinkers in general, and encourage longer active trading sessions on the premises, not to mention a small but significant extra revenue brought in by the machines' operation. I drove past late tonight and saw very lively trading.

The only considerations they seem to have made to improving customer experience, have been taken straight from The Crown, The Tally Ho, The Royal Oak and The Volly.
Not what The Lamb is about. It's infuriating, and above all upsetting to see.

So glad my life doesn't revolve around 'the pub'. Admittedly it does revolve around avoiding bumping people I know on my to the supermarket to get junk food I then binge on before slipping into a food fueled stupor whilst watching cat videos on YouTube but...

@ ClarifiedButler - that still sounds preferable to a glass to the back of the head and a hangover on overpriced booze!
I grew out of regular "pub nights" a few years ago and feel better and healthier for it. Oooh, I can't wait to see how many dislikes I accumulate now!

Drinker. How dare u diss the tally. It is a well run and popular estate pub. The landlord looks after his pub teams and I have been nothing but welcomed there. There is rarely any trouble there either. Have u ever been there.

Does anyone else consider it only fair and reasonable to expect pub landlords to check and clear up broken glasses / bottles within say a 50 yard radius of their establishments each morning?
This morning for instance, there was broken glass (very hazardous to dogs, for example) in the immediate vicinity of the Lamb, the Lansdown, the Royal Oak, the Elly, the Volly and the Gardeners. They were the only places I walked past, so the probem may have been more widespread. I accept that there is a chance of the glass resulting from non-customers, but a bit of community-mindedness would be appreciated.

Slightly weird opening post, Alec was a member of Waterloo, not Cliffe and wasn't the president. Also the pub was virtually empty all week except for Friday and Saturday nights. Personally I think it's nice to have another pub with a pool table, they're increasingly rare these days. The Lamb is still going to have live music on the weekends so I fail to see how encouraging punters to go there the rest of the week is ruining anything.
Also I don't find it at all surprising that Pedders is worried about getting glassed every time he goes in a pub, despite nobody having been glassed in Lewes since the 90's.
