I have it on good authority that the Snowdrop has closed its doors.

Not surprised, as the last 2 times I've been there, we were practically the only people there. Shame though, i liked the place.

The hand-written note on the door says 'Pub closed due to no delivery'. Make of that what you will.

It was one of the reasons I moved to lewes in the first place. Tim and Sue turned down the opportunity to take it on again recently which is a real shame, they made it what it was and it's just gone slowly downhill since they sold up. The phoney Japanese decor upstairs with the really uncomfortable chairs was the beginning of the end for me.
It was one of the reasons I moved to Lewes in the first place and a very sad loss.

Well one group of people who won't miss its demise is the South Street residents whose cars are regularly vandalised - wing mirrors smashed, windscreens smashed etc.

It's the Japanese decor wot attracts the vandals.
I bet there was no trouble when Tim ran it.

I find it incredible how the place went down. It was great when it did prize-winning vegetarian food and had a marvellous atmosphere. Then it changed and became less and less worth going to.

I saw it busy on a Saturday afternoon- once! They also opened their doors to the partying youth of Lewes who celebrated their 18th birthdays there. A real shame-we were even happy to go when we were the only people there, that's how much we liked it.
South Road Vandalism??? Haven't we just established that no-one went to the Snowdrop, hence the closure???? We'll just blame that one on the Dorset patrons!

Another reason I used to like going there was passing (and sometimes going in) the chippie that sells fish piece for cats for 50p. Sometimes I've got so much for 50p my cat thinks its gone to heaven.

Last thing I heard that it was shut due to the Kitchen being condemned????

South STREET. And I would class kids running over the roofs of parked cars as vandalism, wouldn't you?
And wing-mirrors kicked off, windowboxes ripped out, flowerpots smashed, pint glasses strewn all over.
That said, I shall be very sad if it's closed...

still need the truth though? - was it the kitchens? was it lack of trade? - saw band in there about a month ago - it was splitting at the seams - great beer too - just needs a few of the grown ups leaving to bollock the kids running over cars (if indeed this is true) or report them for such behaviour to cease - mistake to sell off the beer garden for yet another poxy block of rabbit hutches with no parking THATS whats killed the Snowdrop (in my opinion) - and smoking ban (who wants to smoke in the rain) - and cheap euro-fighting-lager in the supermarkets - or will it be re-opening - or is it not even closed? - rumour + heresay - what IS the score with the Snowy?
