Lewes House of Friendship

Lewes House of Friendship is based at 208 High Street, Lewes (next to Flint Owl Bakery). We provide a range of activities of interest to older members of the local community and a place where you can meet for companionship and to make new friends - we also offer teas, coffees and a hot lunch.

Opening Times

  • We are open from 10am to 1.30pm, Monday to Friday.

  • Home-cooked lunches for £7 (members) and £8 (visitors) - served at 12.30pm. Please call us to book ahead, by the previous day at the latest, on 01273 476469. Let us know if you have any allergies or need a vegetarian option.

  • Take a look at our weekly menus.

Latest News

  • Warm Space
    As a result of the increase in energy costs, and the fear that many will be unable to afford to heat their homes during the day, some community organisations are opening their buildings as a place for people to come and be warm.

    We are grateful to Lewes District Council who have provided funding for the Lewes House of Friendship to become a 'warm space'.

    People over the age of 55 are welcome to come into The House between 9.30am and 1.00pm on any weekday, they will be welcomed with a hot drink and a friendly safe environment.

  • Christmas Lunch is back!
    We're inviting members old and new to a traditional Christmas Dinner on Tuesday 13th December. The meal will include drinks, coffee and all the trimmings - a vegetarian option will be available - all for £10.

  • Do come and meet up with old friends - or make new ones!

  • Please book early as places will be limited! Call in any morning or give us a ring on 01273 476469.
