Historic pub situated on the site of England's worst avalanche disaster (hence the name). Food and beer are good but service can be slow and the garden is looking rather shabby these days.

Keere Street, thought to be the oldest street in Lewes, is a cobbled street that drops sharply downhill from the High Street. It lies just outside the old town wall, which forms the boundary for properties on the eastern side of the street. Most of the properties are Grade II listed, dating from the late 18th or 19th century, with a few exceptions at the southern end of the street. It is famous for the doubtful legend that the Prince of Wales (future George IV) once drove a coach and four horses down the street to for a wager.

Beautiful gardens dating from the 16th Century. Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II) planted additional trees when she visited Lewes on 18 May 1951. Her visit to the Grange gardens is commemorated by an inscribed stone at the base of the Tulip Tree on the cross path at the end of the main lawn. Above the archway in the side of the wall facing west is a carved stone boss, originally obtained from the ruins of the Lewes Priory.
