Our Hometown

A River Runs Through It...

Lewes is a charming town with a rich history. It is home to many historical landmarks, including Lewes Castle, the Old Town Hall, and the Priory Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. The town is also known for its independent shops, restaurants, pubs and not forgetting Harvey's Brewery situated on the banks of the river Ouse.

Our stunning golf course has been played on since as far back as 1896, making it one of the older courses in the county. It is a challenging course, with rolling hills and undulating fairways, but it is also a very rewarding one. The views from the course are simply breathtaking, taking in the surrounding countryside and the North Downs.

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding golf experience in a beautiful setting, then Lewes Golf Club is the perfect place for you. The club is also a great place to stay and play, with a variety of accommodation options available.

Here's a little information about some of our favourite landmarks...

Harvey's Brewery

  • The brewery was originally located in Bear Yard, opposite the current brewery. It was rebuilt in 1881 in a rustic neo-Gothic style, and the weather vane on the top of the tower is dated 1621.

  • Harvey's Brewery has been in the hands of the Harvey family ever since it was founded. The current chairman is Charles Harvey, the seventh generation of the family to run the brewery.

  • The brewery produces a range of beers, including its flagship Sussex Best Bitter, which is brewed using traditional methods and ingredients. Harvey's beers are available in pubs and shops throughout Sussex and beyond.
