Anyone recommend a decent carvery pub for a Sunday roast in Lewes/Uckfield area?

Southover Queen again? If so, please just use your own moniker. These anonymous "can you recommend...." threads are becoming quite tedious.

No, not me. Once again I have nothing at all to do with any pubs in Lewes. I run a different kind of tourism business.
Is it not possible that someone might come here and seek advice about getting a decent Sunday lunch? Eh? It seems quite reasonable to me, this being the Lewes forum.
I don't have an opinion about a carvery pub in Lewes. The ones I normally recommend would not fit into that category. Sorry not to be more helpful bazm.

No, just that there have been so many "can you recommend" threads in the last two months and you stated that you used the forum for this sort of thing. Sorry to cast aspersions.

Okay, well let me state here and now that Southover Queen is the only name I've used on this forum, except for a brief excursion into "Southern Queen" which was just a mistake.
Unless I'm much mistaken "yawn" isn't your name either, so complaining about anonymous threads isn't really reasonable is it? This person is simply new and noticed that you didn't have to give a real name and that none (most?) of the other users don't give theirs either.
What I have stated in the past is that a local forum would be an obvious place to seek local recommendations about local businesses, but that sometimes/often the attitude of the existing membership militates against this. This thread's a good example of that.

Fine. Must be a lot of different people needing recommendations all of a sudden. Why they think they'll get decent pointers here is beyond me though.
Yawn... is not my birth name. I guess Southover Queen is not yours either. I'm glad to see you don't post under multiple user names.

A local forum would be the obvious place to ask for local recommendations you utter dick.

Southover Queen, are you a man or a woman? I'm not trying to be rude or inflammatory, it would just help me complete my mental picture.

This is the first time I have read a good report about the White Hart. Is this a conspiracy?

crown carvery at peacehaven is bloody great. Not quite Lewes/Uckfield but about the same distance as Uckfield at least. Child freindly, Staff are freindly and most importantly the roast is chuffing massive and good.

Whilst having the reputation of being a bit "tired" I quite like the White Hart - I used to go to the W.H. on a Sunday evening for the carvery - recently changed hands now that Cliff Ayris has sold up (and the Boship Hotel), so we wait to see if any improvements will be implemented.

Thanks to all the recommendations. I'll ignore Yawn whose moniker sums him/her up.

I love a good Roast, used to like the Rainbow at Cooksbridge many years ago (is Marco P White taking that over now?) also The Cock near Uckfireld was good, now I only know of Simpsons and Goring in London for a good roast dins. Any near Lewes I would love to hear of! As long as it is not frozen foods I will give it a try! Best, Peter

The carvery at the White Hart is no more, and Cliff Ayris has no sold up. He is still the owner but a management company called Legacy Hotels runs i for him and is doing its best to up grade the place.
