Not impressed with this place. Previously been told by bar staff that vaping is allowed, now this evening we are told that it is not allowed.
Oh well we will drink the bottle of wine and then go elsewhere for dinner. Their loss!
I guess it's another case of Harveys not understanding what the drinkers / vapers of Lewes want!

It's a shame but you're missing out! Best kept beer in Lewes. Food is always really good. I don't "vape" but you've got the 3 outside areas, roof, front and back to "vape". Good luck with finding somewhere that will accommodate you. Bit rare these days.

Numberjack, what great company you must be. Sitting on your phone moaning. You are as antisocial as your vaping. go out side, no one will miss you.

Not a friendly pub for disabled people. Have you ever seen anyone in a wheelchair gain access to this pub?

That's an interesting point endofthehouse. Which pubs in Lewes would you are are disabled friendly?

Terrible behaviour but come on, if you lack the mental capacity to give up smoking then perhaps you should go outside where no one else has to suffer your second hand faux smoke. Bring back smoking I say. Or as a reformed smoker should you find it offensive?

We went to The Lewes Arms, where we were made very welcome, vape friendly, good food, nice wine.
I am a 'reformed' smoker, but have to say, I totally disagree with the smoking ban, but that's a whole new topic!
The anti smoking lobby got their way and got a smoking ban in pubs, now there is a much safer alternative, they want to stop that also, they won't be happy until drinking is banned in pubs too. Strange bunch of people with over inflated opinions of their own self importance, that they are?!?!

Vaping does seem a strange and novel thing still, and the enormous arms-race in e-cig manufacturers as to who creates the biggest plumes of "vape" does seem pointless and annoying, but it has over 95% less carcinogens and toxins compared to combustible cigarettes. Its a revolution for smokers who will inevitably have vastly better lung health as a result of switching to vaping, and considering that tobacco is one of the most addictive drugs, and smoking it kills around 100k people in the UK (let alone the poor health it leaves many more), then it really should be commended.

there is no reason why pubs can't have a partitioned off area inside a pub to smoke! like wimpy and macdonalds do over here in s.africa. and 90% of the pubs. and why can't anyone open a smoking only pub? then let the non smokers go outside in the cold and rain you get over there.

From what I gather on here and first hand experience it's pub owners who make the choice to not let you vape.
Pretty sure it was just smoking they wanted banned from pubs, not drinking.

smoking . If I had the money I would set up a proper smoking lounge (as an aside I'm guessing the old tobacconist up by the Law courts has gone) I would sell mixes of tobacco, pipes, exotic cigarettes etc. And tea/coffee. No food/alcohol. Like an 18th. century coffee house. I would seriously do this if I won the lottery. I doubt I would make any money, but .....

As The Crown is thankfully up for sale, I just pray Harvey's buy it and transform if in a similar way.

People have managed to give up smoking for years without looking like Thomas the Tank Engine at full speed so is it really a "revolution" for smokers? Less regulations on vaping so do you really know what cr*p you are puffing on?

@wtf - People tend to want to give up smoking because its unhealthy (and expensive). Vaping is relatively well researched, despite being fairly new. It doesn't appear to be a hazardous activity, and many people seem to enjoy it, so I think thats a pretty good step forward (given the alarming number of deaths caused by smoking). Is giving up all drugs such an ultimate goal anyway? If a drug is enjoyable and in moderation not harmful, then I don't see the problem. I paraphrase the neuroscientist, philosopher and author Sam Harris - a life without drugs is neither forseeable or even desirable.

Can't stand vaping. Whatever is in the steam /vapour smells horrible and capers seem to think it's not offensive to puff all over other people. Well blowing smoke or vapour in someone's face is just rude so just stop it.

@belladonna, yea, its rude to blow vape or smoke at someone, and most vapers surely agree with that reasonable bit of etiquette. Some e-cigs do have a funny chemical smell about them, but its still preferable to the toxic smoke that its replacing (well, in that its at least less harmful).
