Under the Premier Inn are two-as-yet-untaken restaurant units. Let's hear it for a good SEAFOOD RESTAURANT and/or a SUSHI BAR and/or a SALAD BAR and for heaven's sake no more pseudo Italian places. What do others think?

I think LDC should write a clause into any lease agreement for the Turkish Baths building, preventing any restaurant opening there from selling burgers and pizzas.

What we do need is a joyous Turkish Bath and Sauna facility, with juice and salad bar - or is that too "Continental"?
Also, I suggest a Restart Project (look it up online) where you can exchange skills and learn how to fix broken electronics - and other stuff, for that matter.

Sod the eating places as most of them are pretty dire anyway. We need a pound land and if you really want an eating place then let's have a subway. No doubt the dfls would be mortified

A proper meat-free veggie restaurant would be nice where good, fresh wholesome, plant based foods are prepared. Not just a token cheese-laden "V" option as an afterthought on a menu that so many restaurants fail their customers on.

I actually wouldn't mind pizza if it was Fatto a Mano. Otherwise I think a nice French cuisine like Plateau would be good or a just a decent honest grill house with meat sourced from the local farms. I keep looking at those units praying they don't fall in the hands of mediocre convenience food.

Aqua - ok, great service, food fine, value for money fine, BUT noise absolutely fiendish, with or without Muzak. Never again, till they fix that. Most of my friends agree

Poundland. Yes. I go to Eastbourne to stock up on toothpaste, shampoo, stationery, sandwich bags, kitchen foil, and those odd things that turn up there, never to be seen again. So, Yes, defnitely a Poundland in Lewes.

A Poundland would be a great idea - It's not all cheap tat and not everyone in Lewes is on high earnings either. The only reason why people wouldn't want one in Lewes is down to snobbery (unless someone would like to come up with a valid reason otherwise). It's the same with Macdonalds/KFC etc - not everyone's cup of tea but still popular (particularly with the younger generation)
Are these definitely restaurant units? because if not' then how about some more shops to replace the ones already lost to the growing number of "eating places/coffee shops/restaurants" in town? (Millwards, McCartney Stewarts etc)

I guess I'm opening myself up to all kinds of abuse for suggesting such a thing but here goes anyhow...
How about a Middle Eastern/mostly veggie place (falafels, wraps etc)? Feels pretty Lewesian to me. Comptoir Libanais is the obvious chain, very good imo, an independent would be even better. Anyone like-minded out there in Forumland..?

Spoons? Or perhaps a Newsagents which is really lacking at that end of town.

@eater - i think thats a splendid idea. I love middle eastern and Lebanese cuisine. It's nourishing, and often light in meat options which makes a refreshing change to see the focus on vegetables, pulses and legumes etc. It is apparent that some people are quite belligerent towards vegans and vegetarians for whatever reasons, but seriously, a meat-eater is already spoiled for choice in Lewes/Brighton, so a bit of variety that caters for EVERYONE is a good thing....and a restaurant that concentrates mainly on non-meat dishes is catering for everyone, as there is no obligation for meat-eaters to eat meat unlike the case in reverse. So a bit of understanding and empathy on this would be welcome.

@eater Brilliant suggestion! Lebanese food tops all Middle-Eastern food, and ME food tops world food IMHO

@eyeinthesky - i'm delighted to see more like-minded people on this. I love foods from all over the world, and it does feel like we've reached saturation point in terms of italian, indian, chinese and fish n chips outlets here - variety is the spice of life after all! I absolutely love pizza, but the last thing we need is another restaurant that serves another "the freshest pizza in town".

At 75,000 plus rates (approx.30,000), it will have to be a VERY profitable restaurant or pound shop. The first two thousand pounds of earnings(not takings) every week will go on rent & rates.

I'm with Marlen..a spa and sauna, based on the Swiss/German model, ie clean and super relaxing! The White Hart and the leisure centre are dire, dirty, pokey and generally unpleasant!
