Lakedown taproom with sublime views opening in Burwash
Tucked away in an idyllic corner of Burwash lies the Lakedown Taproom. Housed in the fisherman’s lodge with views extending over the lakes you will find the perfect spot to enjoy a range of delicious ales from Lakedown Brewing Company, their microbrewery. There is space both indoors and out, and an online booking system to ensure you aren’t disappointed. The new venture opens this Friday 27 August and opening hours are 12-8pm Wednesday to Sunday in the Summer and 12-6pm in the Winter.
The four lakes at Lakedown Fishery and the Fisherman’s Lodge were built by Roger Daltrey at the height of The Who’s rock and roll fame in the 70s. A relaxing antithesis to the hectic touring life that Roger was living. Now the family are sharing this special place with anyone who wants to enjoy good beer and the stunning view across the spring-fed lakes. The lodge has been converted to a taproom with a very personal touch, it is a special place away from any noise and traffic.
Lakedown Brewing Company was born between the lockdowns of 2020 by brothers in law, Chris Rule, Des Murphy and Jamie Daltrey. Jamie had spent the past 2 years breathing life back into the famous Sussex trout fishery, and the desire to diversify the family farm was raised over a beer by the lakes. After dreaming up the idea of a brewery and tap room, they met up with Steve Keegan at a neighbouring brewery and their plan started to take shape. Jamie and the team brew Lakedown beers with Steve in Uckfield, East Sussex and their blend of classic English ales and modern craft beers have been an instant hit.
The taproom will serve exclusively Lakedown Brewing Co beers (and some soft drinks) which you can drink on the banks of the main lake.
Five stunning beers to enjoy
This really is the place to kick back and enjoy an English Pale Ale, German Pilsner, American Pale Ale, Best Bitter or a New England IPA. Drinks are served in halves or full pints and accompanied by bar snacks. You can also purchase beer for takeaway and order online for delivery.
The Lakedown Tap Room opens it doors to the public on Fri 27th August and entrance is firmly on a bookings only basis, limiting the footfall to the lakes so that the tranquillity can be enjoyed by the fishermen, fish and beer drinkers to the full.
