Review on The Real Eating Company

The Real Easting Company, an all day dining venue in Lewes ticks all the right boxes. Menus change daily, ingredients are local and seasonal where possible, prices are keen, everyone is welcome, and the place goes about its business without airs, graces or pretence.

Smoked fish boards and charcuterie bolster the array of tempting delights - Sussex beef carpaccio with beetroot, homemade gnocchi with fresh peas and cherry vine tomatoes, rack of lamb with salsa verde, warm treacle tart with homemade ice cream, and much more besides.

It's also worth checking out breakfast with its line-up of big fry-ups, pancakes, eggs florentine, kippers and such like. Top-notch soft drinks, beers and affordably priced wines too. REC is also spreading its message with drop-in cafés in Bournemouth, Horsham and Witney.
