The staff are welcoming and friendly, the food is plentiful and good value (breakfast is particularly excellent) and the specials board changes all the time which is great for regulars. The main chef is clearly passionate about food and really happy to talk about it. The owner also is very friendly which creates a nice atmosphere. Also a great stop... More

We stopped here on our way to visit Lewes Castle. The sandwiches were freshly made and delicious, we ate in with our two Children and although a small eating area to the rear of the shop, we felt welcomed and comfortable. They do have several table and chairs in the back garden too.

Cafés seem to come and go on Lewes High Street. Now that both Baltica and Lewesiana’s coffee shops have both disappeared, I felt that Robson’s of Lewes would be a grown up alternative to the benches and old hospital chairs that now reside in some of the nearby eateries. Unlike the weather that day, the owner came over as a... More

I thought that there were too many tables in such a small place. The servers were squeezing passed all the tables. There is a wide ranging menu with lots of tempting cakes to finish the meal. Sadly the toilets need a total refurb. The staff were rushed off their feet as it was Saturday lunchtime.

Thankyou for your review & I'm pleased you enjoyed the food.Unfortunately you came at one of our busiest times,often customers bring pushchairs which means tables are sometimes pushed closer together,we have another seating area which is normally less crowded.Hope you will come & see us again.

Robson's is a little gem on the High Street. Breakfast ,lunch or tea and they cater for everyone. Menu or daily specials to tempt adults and kids alike and all budgets. It does get very busy, space is at a premium at lunch and in summer has a few outside tables. Hubby and I had a lovely cream tea with... More

Ate here earlier today. I had a lovely cheese, tuna and pasta bake. My partner had soup of the day which came with a nice roll. Both were excellent and served piping hot. It's popular in there, so you may have to wait for a table at peak times, but it's worth the wait. Good value.

Went for lunch today with my sister. Just popped in as we were passing. I ate Brie, Bacon and Cranberry panini, which was served with crisps and coleslaw. It tasted lovely, and the service was friendly and efficient. The only negative was the toilet. If they paid as much attention to the loo, as to the food, it would improve... More
