Yes, and let's name the five best football clubs, and the five best drinks, and the five best sit coms. Might be a tad subjective.
Anyway it's Millwall, Jameson's , Porridge.
Don't need Five.

This question comes up once every 6 weeks, it's very dull and always concludes that we are very lucky in Lewes to have something for everyone. Moving on.......

@Jim - I agree and someone nearly always starts going on "Ooh I love the 'Ellie' and their famous Ellieburger'" (famous where, exactly?). It's a nice enough pub, better than most, but I wouldn't get that excited about it.

I couldn't agree more with you, Nellie and Jim
The owners have tried to make it 'famous ' by giving it a 'funny' name, I wonder if people still ask if it contains elephant
But it's no more than offal in a bun and if that floats your boat …

Tooth Fairy@ There's no offal in them, just local free range beef. Certainly the best burgers I've had anywhere, and not "premium-priced". Famous on this forum at least.

It does become a bit of a dull subject. I must point out the first person to bring up the Ellyburger was the person complaining people always bring it up.
For the record, we use May's steak mince for our burgers (same as the Snowdrop) and have been selling them for over twenty years (started before my time).
As for lists of which pubs are best, personally I think that depends on your mood.
With so many pubs in Lewes you'd be foolish to only frequent one.
Anyway, wherever you go enjoy yourself and remember that the pubs you celebrate or denigrate provide people with employment and a social network and the people who own/work in them are human beings not faceless internet bots.

best for food - Swan
The Snowdrop used to be in my ale list but they seem to have focussed almost enitrely on the overhopped IPA market. Last time i was there there were five different ales on tap - all of which were identical: IPAs packed full of hops imported from the northwest USA. Went for a pint of Harveys in the end - local ingredients innit.

I'd like to like the Ellie but it has too many screens, which I'm not a fan of. It also screams "sports pub" at me, despite excellent beers and good food.
