Hopefully, The Lamb will re-open as a pub once more.
A great venue with a long and rich Lewes history.
Any tips for a prospective new owner/tenant?
What would the local clientele like to see on offer?

Clean and cheerful, something different from other Lewes pubs. Check out craft pubs in London and Brighton. Great ideas to borrow...

It used to have a genuinely interesting, innovative and fun music scene. I miss that. But perhaps that's something that can't be recaptured. It made a community out of music lovers - folk, world, ska, blues, so maybe something in the spirit of that (community space) might be good? Whatever happens to it, it's nice to see the boards off the windows.

Brilliant music venue. Bring on lots of interesting and excellent music of all types.

Would be great to have a pub in Lewes selling really well done British food using local ingredients. How sodding hard is it??

Now we have Fuego, we don't need pubs. Well apart from the Volly to keep the chavs away.

"Craft pubs" in my experience serve about 20 different varieties of American-style "grapefruit juice" IPAs, all packed full of hops imported thousands of miles from the Yakima Valley in the northwest USA.
Not against the odd good IPA in this style but, as with food, I prefer my beer to be locally sourced.

@CB- have you tried the Brewers Arms?

Not for a while actually, need to give them a go again soon. Somewhere with a decent lamb stew and dumplings would be amazing.

Agreed Observer. I love an IPA as much as the next man, but it can be a bit tiresome when that is all there is on offer (Brighton). Give me the option to have a good best bitter too.

Would love to see dark Star take it over - a "Brewdog" style pub would really shake up Lewes.

Yeah Brewdog man! Punks! Shake it up! Bring in the 'Punk IPA' - now being sold in your local supermarket!
This is brought to you by TSG Consumer Partners, the private equity firm that part-owns Brewdog.
Harveys - locally owned, emphasise food miles (only serving pubs within a certain radius), have Tom Paine on their bottles and use hops from Sussex & Kent rather than Oregon & Washington.
Which is the more radical?
