"This stylish pub, whose name reflects the fact that Thomas Paine once called Lewes home, is one of the best places to pair local Harveys ale with well executed food, albeit with a definite Continental lean. Wood panelling, art deco lighting and a summer terrace makes things feel a long way from the average British boozer"  Lonely Planet


It is with great sadness that we are calling last orders at the Rights Of Man for the time being, given the escalation of te coronavirus crisis.

We would like to thank our amazing staff who have been doing a great job over recent weeks in increasingly challenging circumstances.

We want to wish you and your families good health and thank you for your support now, and in the weeks and months to come. We look forward to when we can open our doors and welcome you back to our pub and restaurant again.


Buy a gift card to support us and AB InBev UK Limited will double the value for us. We'll get the cash we need now and you can celebrate with it when we reopen.
