I'm looking for inspiration for food walks near and around Lewes, without a car. The one to Glynde was a favourite but seems a bit sad now the Trevor isn't there for a drink. We often hop on the train to southease and walk to rodmell and back - but any ideas gratefully received. Thanks

I meant good walks, not food walks - though a nice pub be route never goes amiss!

Over the downs to Ringmer (Green Man and Anchor) instead of Glynde. Similar distance and can get the bus (28) back.
Up to Black Cap and down to Plumpton (Half moon) and back by rail.
To Kingston and up on to the ridge, back down to the Juggs, and back to the. Swan.

Bus #28 and 22 to Woodingdean and walk back over the downs. Bacon and egg sarnies at Layby Lil by the roundhouse, then either finish the walk or catch the bus for the last little bit.

Lewes, over Caburn to Glynde, on to Firle and the Coach Road to Alfriston. Head back to Berwick for train back to Lewes.
Or a bit longer, Lewes, Caburn, Glynde, top of Downs and over to Seaford or turn right and head to Southease. (Trains back to Lewes from Seaford and Southease).
Or train to Berwick, walk to Alfriston then follow Cuckmere to Exceat, back over Seaford Head and train home.
There are loads.......and all have decent refreshments en route.

Walk over the downs to the Trevor Arms and cross the A27 and walk onwards to Firle, The Ram Inn (amazing food) and Glynde station are both nearby.

Along the river south to Abergavenny Arms, walk or occasionally bus back. Otherwise drive through Laughton to half way along Park Lane. Beautiful walk through the woods to the Roebuck.

From Landport through the woods to Offham or along the river to Hamsey and then up the lane to Offham . Lunch at the Blacksmiths Arms and then the footpath up over the chalkpit . You can then go over towards the racecourse or down towards Wallands school .
