Harveys acquires Lincolns in Lewes

Lincolns Bar

It may have been the worst kept secret in Lewes, but Harveys is pleased to announce that we have acquired Lincolns Bar, at the top of the High Street, next door to Lewes Crown Court.

We are very excited to be taking over this public house and refurbishment is already underway. We hope to have the front bar open in 3-4 weeks, however it may be a while longer until the whole establishment is up and running.

For any further information please contact the brewery.
