I spent my formative years in that space. 1983 -1993 give or take. All great fun. Loads of laughs, friends, music, games, loves and drama.
It was the place to go in Lewes - people would meet elsewhere, drink throughout the town, but the end game was always The Lamb.
I don't live in Lewes anymore, but often visit.
The Lamb has always been my first port of call when coming home .
I hope it gets it's mojo back.

Looks ideal. Nothing worse than a busy pub full of drunken opinionated jerks like Hamid Barr setting the world to rights.

Haha. Pedro has developed an obsession with Hamid.

I think we are missing the point here. 18 months ago the Lamb was a top class roots music venue with no cover charge. Now it's just a failed attempt to draw cash from 'upscale Lewes'.
One of the driving forces in this change of direction was repeated complaints about noise from one particular homeowner who purchased a property close by when the venue was thriving, with a reduced price tag as compensation. In order to increase the price of their property they drove off the music policy. Germany has legislation to deal with this kind of single-minded greed: if you buy close to a thriving venue you have no right to complain.

Yeah, Hamid Barr is the worst. I just hate it when I'm minding my own business and someone like Hamid Barr expresses their opinion about something unrelated. Especially when it's based around pubs.

I bet Hamid Barr eats burgers with a knife and fork

Who's Hamid Barr?

@stig, just some joyless goon who posts on this forum. Very right wing, but I've not quite decided if it's all just spoofing or he really just is that way. I hope not the latter for everyone's sake, including his own.

I didn't know that, Changeling.
Years ago, some people bought a house opposite the Pelham and tried to stop them having their music licence renewed. They didn't succeed. And someone bought a house close to the Lewes Arms and spent the first summer they lived there complaining about the noise from people drinking outside.
Wtf is wrong with these people?

@Green Sleeves - can you explain what's "very right wing" about defending Maria Caulfield and Stephen Lloyd? They're the only posts I can recall from the poster you seem so obsessed with you have to constantly snipe at him/her/it. You also use the expression "opinionated" which a bit strong coming from you.

@oh dear, carry on white knighting Hamid Barr. It's always fun having a few forum villains lurking about.

@Green Sleeves - I'm not "white knighting" anyone. I simply asked you a question which you seem unable to answer but still have to make a catty remark.

@oh dear. I suggest you read more of Hamid Barrs posts. You're defending a monster

@Green Sleeves - an interesting response but once that still doesn't answer the question even at the second time of asking.
I don't post on here much though I do read the forum and of course I notice various people. You're the long winded one prone to accuse anyone of an opposite viewpoint of being all sorts of things and throw in abundant name calling.

Lol, more "squeaky"?

If you refuse to do your proper due diligence on Hamid Barr, then you will never have your question answered.

@Green Sleeves More than once I've politely asked you for an answer to a simple question and all you offer is evasion.
Much like a sneaky politician trying to justify his own skewed rhetoric and exposing himself as full of wind and bluster as well as being a bit dim.
Feel free to have the last word on this as the hollow echo will be the sound of it falling on deaf ears.

I thought this thread was supposed to be about The Lamb pub.
Seems to have wandered off somewhere into the pastures of nit-picking.
I'm just very glad that at lease one Lewes pub has been saved from the fate of so many failing pubs.
At least The Lamb hasn't become 27 luxury flats.

@green sleeves Just a left wing goon!

The Lamb is a very valuable property and the freeholders are simply biding their time until they can show it is not viable as a commercial property. It will then be sold off for development much like The Crown. That whole area, including the empty council offices on Fisher Street and possibly the Barclays buildings are ripe for Development.
