Where would you go for a romantic dinner in Lewes? 100 pounds budget for two. I am thinking La Familia or that kind of place? Have only been to Lime tree.

Pelham House. Generally reasonably quiet, tables well spaced, low light levels, classy atmosphere and good food and service. You're guaranteed to pull....

Kings Head or a taxi out to the Blacksmiths Arms, I think the £100 will cover the fare.

Avoid Pelham House at all costs, I got food poisoning last time I was there and never even got a reply to my emails about it.
Lime Tree is great, but you've been there before. For £100 I'd get a bus into Brighton and go to 24 Georges up in Kemptown.

Not spoilt for choice in Lewes if you don't want a pub.
Familia is a bit more of a cafe to my mind.
Pelham house okay, but variable quality. Probably the poshest setting.
Lime tree - good food, but uncomfortable seating.
Best pub environments for eating - the dining area at the Pelham arms. The Swan, The Nowdrop and Kings Head. But they can all get busy.
There's also the new Thai place on Landsdown place that could be worth a try. I like the decor!

What Ned Kelly said. £100 will get you ten pints each at the Gardeners, and several bags of nuts. You should have enough left over for a curry after. Job done. And who says romance is dead?

Err... Famiglia... No!! I don't like to criticise a locally-owned (I believe) enterprise but not for a romantic meal. Fine for lunch or something quick. I would say the Snowdrop or the Swan.

The last time we went to Famiglia, ordered Garlic bread. (Yes, I hear you repeating it !) when it came it was white sliced !! Couldn't believe it !

Walk to Jolly Sportsman over beautiful downs, have lovely meal, another pretty walk to Plumpton station and take train back to Lewes. We go there every year for my birthday and quite a few times in between!
