I was reading an old post about how good the volunteer is ?????? just wondered if they were blind deaf and without taste buds !!!! It has got to be the worst pub in Lewes, The staff are awful rude and slow and the food when you eventually get some is terrible. My partner and i prefer the jht for a nice friendly drinking pub and lewes arms and the snowdrop for food. Bring back rob and jo new landlady miserable.

Ah yes, the Volunteer had a middle phase of being a nice to place to go for an evening drink until about a year ago when it was taken over. At that point we went once and never since, as it was so bad. Agree - Snowdrop is best food in town. Agree - JHT & Lewes Arms are best drinking pubs these days.

The Snowdrop do a great Scotch Egg (Large and served hot with salad)
The JHT do a nice hot BLT Served with salad
Both pubs have nice outside areas and the jht is great for people watching
Im hungry now

Wish I had read this before I went for lunch at the volunteer last week, I was with a client and I must say it was a joke the person behind the bar (may have been the land lady?) was rude and totally unhelpful and the excuse for a chef looked like he hadn`t seen a bar of soap for a while. In the end we left and went to the JHT which was lovely. Such a shame as it is in a prime location and could be a good pub if it had a change of staff and a good clean.

i have to agree with cliffcat... went in there for a drink recently and it was pants! when they finally got round to serving me they were rude and seemed more interested in the computer. didn't bother trying the food... i didn't want to wait a year.
