Looked deserted when I passed by at 8pm on Saturday, with a car parked in the beer garden. Nice.

Generally, a great improvement. Comfortable, a good pint and excellent food - all ruined by over-amplified post-punk 'music' blasted out over the speakers! The geriatric trade will hate the noise, and the young set will not appreciate the food. What market are they aiming for- stone deaf pensioners and gourmet punks?

Went there last night, Saturday, not overly busy but not too quiet, nice atmosphere, music was not overpowering, nice staff, vast improvement on the last time I went, before the new owners took over. Food much improved too. Give them a break and try it out.

I went to the Swan for lunch today, having heard many good things, and I wasn't disappointed. A proper boozer with fantastic value food and reasonably priced wine. I can't comment on the Harveys personally, but others have said it's very well kept. Kids and dogs all welcome too, clearly - it's great to see it doing so well.

Am I the only one that thinks those first two posts look suspicious?

Now that you mention it, no. Let's just say that the writing style* of both posters is very similar...
*complete absence of punctuation, for instance, as well as writing the first person pronoun in lower case...

Both forum newcomers, both positive reviews and so closely timed, looking not a bit like they're written after the evening shift has been cleared up.

Hmmm if you looked at the history of this forum, you would see that I have posted before, I was born in Lewes, so I'm not sure what you mean by newcomer, I can remember when the argos shop was a garage and I knew Bill when he was just running a fruit and veg shop, Safeway coming to town was big news and Daltons was pretty much the only clothes shop in town, local enoguh for you? There are actually positive people who are locals, who welcome change and like to give a person a break, benefit of doubt and all that. A postitive outlook can really make your life a less negative experience. I guess you probably think the moon landing was a conspiracy and didn't happen either, well good on you, I wish you well.

All you need to know is that I'm happy.

Happy or gay? Not much of a plug when they spell Dorset wrong!
Pig's Ears at Half Moon Plumpton - they're really nice!

How can you be happy when you have a persecution complex so bad that you think a suspicion raised about, clearly, other people is levelled at yourself? Unless, of course, those other people are your pseudonyms, which you forgot about in your guilt at being rumbled and your hurried refutation. For the record, I don't happen to think they are you, and never did, you appear to be able to punctuate and spell.

Are you implying that calling me gay is an insult, the only insult there is an insult to my intelligence? But I do agree the Half Moon Plumpton is a great place, with great food.

I can vouch for the Harvey's at Swan. Best pint in Lewes in my opinion, especially the Old Ale. Fish and chips looked good there too.
