Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Royal Oak

The Royal Oak is the second pub you get to when you trudge up the hill from the station. It's a Greene King pub, but other than the Royal Oak house beer from them, the other beers were from other breweries. The ubiquitous Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter & St Austell Tribute are regular ales. I opted for the guest beer, which was Bedlam Amagansett and was nothing to write home about.

The pub had not long opened when we arrived for our Saturday lunchtime visit to Lewes. The interior is one single room, which is fairly plain.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Oak

Looks like a routine Greene King town centre pub, and in many ways this impression is correct with the expected refurbished, semi-traditional furniture and decor. What did surprise me though, was the selection from four of the five handpumps: yes, a re-badged 'house's beer, and the ubiquitous Harvey's as a guest (bowing to the inevitable here), but also Tribute and an excellent Bedlam Porter (£4.40).

First stop out of the station, however no guest on and not prepared to lower ourselves to GK so didn't stop, hence no rating.
