Trevor Arms

The Street Glynde East Sussex BN8 6SS

What better way to spend a day in Sussex than a tramp over the hills, winding up at a great village pub for lunch and a pint of Harveys. The walk from Lewes to Glynde ticks all the boxes, and since the walk itself is less than three miles, it leaves you all the more time for the pub bit – a thoroughly good thing in this case, since the pub in question is the excellent Trevor Arms. The interior is decked out in eclectic, homely style – stuffed boars’ heads sporting bowler hats on the walls, plenty of comfy armchairs and wood burners, even a vintage arcade game you can play for 50p a go. Outside, there are tables out the front by the lane, plus a huge garden to the side, complete with swings and a playhouse. There’s local Harveys beer and other ales on tap, and good, thankfully not gastro-priced food: burgers, fish and chips and excellent home-cooked pies are all around the £10 mark; ploughmans and sandwiches cost £6–10. And the best bit? The pub’s right by Glynde station so you don’t even have to walk back to Lewes afterwards – unless you want to burn off the chocolate sponge pudding of course.
