Graham Coombs left this review about The Lansdown Arms

Very Bohemian sort of place, with dark ceilings, random decorations (including a tree) and lots of artwork. The clientele seemed to match, and it was a bit cliquey, to say the least. Food is provided by the Italian street food takeaway next door. The beer seemed improved though, with Landlord, Gun Extra Pale, Harvey's Best and an American IPA (Wadsworths?) and that sampled in fair condition albeit a little warm. Handy for the station.

Only went into this pub to escape the torrential May rain and try to call a cab to take us to the Snowdrop, having just arrived in town by train. Castle Rock Harvest Pale and Timothy Taylor Landlord on the bar kind of summed the place up and despite the quirky decorations from many yard sales and car boots, I was un-inspired. It proved to be true that the toilets were stinkers and when the rain stopped, we headed for the door. The Harvest pale being a bit close to home, I opted for the Timbos and regretted it as it was slightly cloudy and not great tasting. Probably won't bother again.

Harveys Best, Dark Star, Over the Moon and a couple of random ales were available during my visit along with a standard draught selection from which I had a decent pint of Guinness.

I got the feeling that this is a music venue even though nothing much was going on. There was a football match playing, but the plasma was off and I saw no sport ads so I gather there is no Sky Sports.

I was surprised to see a paper-mache tree in the bar area, but not so surprised to find the smelliest toilet in Lewes festering at the rear of the pub.

I found it hard to get settled in here and if in Lewes again I will walk past to the superior pubs up the steep hill.
