Swan Inn Portions

Is it me or are the portions at the Swan massive? After I had stuffed my face the plate looked like what a portion normally looks before I have eaten! Don't know aboout you but it's a bit off-putting to be served a massive pile and it's a shame to throw away so much food.

@ Gordon - you are unfortunately right. The food at the Swan is very good, but it is hard to try to get something on your fork without dislodging a batallion of peas which have been looking for just this moment to escape. Slightly smaller portions would help with profit margins too, I expect. BUT hands off the scampi!

Talking of scampi, my friends wife recently got food poisoning from scampi served at the The Juggs and Kingston last week, and the roasts are pretty bad compared to what they used to be like. Surely The Snowdrop is still the best GastroPub in Town?

The Snowdrop, when I visited it years ago, was filthy and the food not
much cop. How much out of 10 would you rate it now?

The Snowdrop now is not only the best pub to eat at in Lewes, it's one of the nicest to drink in too. The food is very reasonably priced with mains rocking in at not much dearer than an Ellyburger and every time I've eaten there I've enjoyed it. The new owners are more interested in making money from serving decent food and beer rather than selling drugs, hence the remarkable turnaround in the quality of the place.

Ed Can Do, I second that. The food is really good and a different menu daily.The pub is now a friendly place where families often meet for Sunday lunch. I visit there at least twice a week to eat. Not been disappointed once. Before anyone says I work there etc,I do not,just credit where credits due.

I should have added 10 out of 10 from mr Grunge.

The beer, food and atmosphere is brilliant. I think the new owners of the pub, also own the Hop Poles in Brighton. Thats good too. God, the Snowdrop used to be shocking. It's back to its best!

Thanks for the info, everyone. The Snowdrop it is, then!

Also the place to go if you have a strange impulse to buy expensive artwork, which is hung upstairs. Not so much a pub as a gastro pub with poncy art gallery. And if you don't order food they may just about bother to serve you but never mind!

Never mind the art that is hung upstairs, is the meat hung? I am tired of buying bright red meat, it is as tough as my ex wife's heart! I used to like The Cock nr Ucks, is it still going? Food was very good years ago. Peter
