The best carvery in Lewes?

I'm in my 3rd year of university (Sussex) and I'd like to make the most of it before I leave.
My family and I would like to go for a meal in Lewes in the spring/summer, so what do you think are the best places to go? A carvery would be best, but feel free to recommend other places for us to check out.

The Chalkpit Inn on the Offham Road does great food at reasonable prices. Also home to the legendary MBS. The "Muddy Boots Society"!

I'm getting more and more impressed with the Snowdrop every time I go. It has a nice atmosphere and good food, with excellent portions, excellent service and friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable too - a huge roast dinner is about £8.

A student at Sussex? Surely you should be a vegetarian by now Bella.

I can't praise the Pelham House Hotel enough. They provided a large family group with an excellent 3-course meal on Boxing day for 19.50 a head and gave special childrens options (£5). They were attentive and helpful and gave us our own room at no extra charge. The food was interesting, very tasty and well presented, and they allowed us to eat at our own pace - we spent about 3 hours there.

If you want to shorten your life but a few years I would recommend the White Hart carvery. Overcooked meat which has been regenerated to last 3 or 4 days is on offer as well as rotting vegetables......very pleasant if you are into that sort of thing.

The Abergavenny in Rodmell is well worth a visit. Hearty Roasts & great value but its a short drive from Lewes & 10minutes from the University.

I was going to say "notice how no one has recommended the White Hart" but now they have, and made the point anyway!

Thank you, guys
I saw someone else mention The Chalk Pit Inn. Good?
@Sherlock Unfortunately I don't think I could make it as a vegetarian!

yes PelhamArms - thats if its not busy and the food comes out hot. We booked a table there a couple of months ago in the restaurant area, arrived on time, then had to sit in the bar, order at the bar (no waitresses in the bar even though we'd booked the restaurant), bar maids completely unsure of procedure and flustered. After 40 mins waiting for food we bought some crisps to keep the kids going. When the food finally came out the 'roast' meat - lamb chicken and beef were all cold. When we queried this we were told they always served their 'roasts' cold (WHAT ?), despite the fact that we had been in previously and recieved hot dinners. Having said all this we have had good meals in there before so can only this down to poor management. But we haven't gone back to eat, which is a shame because it's a lovely pub.

I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
