Taking pride of place on Lewes’ bustling High Street, Rights of Man has all the attributes of a fabulous British establishment. Traditionally decorated with intimate booths and wooden furnishings, it represents the ideal meeting place to warm your cockles in wintery weather, as well as being the perfect spot for a social summer gathering on the roof terrace. Friendly staff and attentive service ensure locals return time and again, and fleeting visitors feel thoroughly welcomed.
Using only the finest suppliers, food at Rights of Man is unsurprisingly excellent in quality. Fish is sourced from the market in Brighton and is marked accordingly on the menu. The Sussex plaice, for example, is just one of the mightily enticing seafood mains and is cooked in prawn butter and served with watercress and sautéed potatoes. The roasted duck breast and slow-roasted pork belly make for opulent alternatives, as well as a selection of tapas dishes if you’re in the mood for sharing. The Sunday roasts at Rights of Man are rightly popular, and the indulgent choice of desserts provides a fitting way to end a beautifully cooked meal.
With private hire available and an ample choice of ale, fine wine and speciality gin on offer, Rights of Man truly is a place for making merry and making plenty of happy memories.
