It wasn't so bad when the chief was alive.

It seems to go in fits and starts, one day it'll be busy, then 2 weeks later it'll be dead. Not quite sure what's going on there, but it's a gamble as to what atmosphere you'll get.

I must say I thought it was a good night, music was brilliant, atmosphere good but it might be a good idea to provide toilet roll(none to be found) and air fresheners, as the smell of the toilet wafting through the bar is eyewatering.
Verdict: Alive and humming.

The smoking ban has a bit to do with that Pearlie....My brother works in a pub in Brighton.He says the smell of the toilets is more...'Aromatic ' these days.But the lack of loo roll is really unforgiveable.
I used to work in the Snowy years ago when Tim and Sue were there.
The Miss Alternative Lewes nights were great....The place was really humming.Maybe it's cos I'm older...But the place has definately lost its heart.

Ah now you come to mention it I have heard tell that pubs are a bit more pongey these days, but there again they did have both toilet doors wedged open with a brick...!!
I'm not a fussy mare, I don't mind roughing it a bit, I've been to many a festival and camped all over but I was prepared and took my own loo roll! Oh and I didn't pitch my tent next to an open toilet door, first rule of a festival..
It does look like it's seen better days, but perhaps there's potential for someone to give it a make over..

Zola from what I've read it sounds like the place still is humming - even going to a concert now allows you to smell the arses of the 10 people nearest you AND what they've had for tea everytuime they open their mouths - bring back the fug of pub - sticky mild soaked carpets and woodbine woodgrain on the furniture

Very much dead and will remain dead so long as the smoking ban remains. Ironic seeing as the snowdrop was one of the first, if not the first pub in lewes to have a non-smoking section over ten years ago. Lewes night life has taken a nose dive since the ban. Very sad. What does Lewes district council do about this - nothing. The snowdrop was a great place to go to from 89 onwards and now it is just souless shell.
