Ochre Framing in Malling Street (at the bottom of Cliffe High Street) are terrific (I've added a link to their site). Kings Framers, opposite the Courts, are another option.

You could also try, Dave "the frame" Graham in the place formerly known as the Star Brewery, tel : 01273 483395.

Dave is fantastic - reasonable and full of good advice. I have heard people say that Kings Framers are expensive but then they have to pay High Street rents!

Try the chap just down the twitten next to Sussex Stationers. Very reasonable.

Yes, I would highly recommend Geoff Bush down Walwers Lane (which runs between School Hill Surgery and stationers that previous commentator mentioned).

Due to a lack of phone answering of the above named businesses (landline and mobile) I eventually went to Keizer Framing at Pastorale Antiques and it waS VERY GOOD.

Must have been an urgent framing (first post 9.52 am) or this is good advertising for Keizer framing!

Blimey. I never realised that there were so many framers in Lewes - where do they get all their business from? I'm never used a framers in my life... perhaps that says more about me than anything else!

The problem with the high cost of framing, over the years I have had quite a lot, is that once done it is worthless. One has only to compare the cost of second hand frames in charity shops etc to that of new to realise how expensive they can be

So completed framing that ends up in charity shops is not worthless then, but just cheaper than new. Your argument doesn't appear to stand up.
Framing enhances its subject in the way that flowers enhance a garden, or a haircut enhances someone's appearance. Value is achieved through the aesthetic pleasure gained, forever.
Otherwise why did you continue having framing work done?

Had something framed at Kings recently upon recommendation from a friend, really pleased with the result but boy did my eyes water when they gave me the price. I rarely get anything framed so just thought why the heck not!!

Yes, I think you could safely say Kings price jobs at the super-premium end of the market. Which is fair enough, but they appear to use the same mouldings, equipment and skills that the others do for 55% of the price (based on my experience).
