What is the Hearth like? This short film, by our friend Gani, should give you a flavour of what you can enjoy….
A Little Bit Of History (never hurt anyone)
We transformed the old greasy spoon canteen café in Lewes bus station in late 2012. We built our own wood-fired oven and redecorated the interior to create a stylish contemporary “osteria”, or a hostelry with a hearth, in plain old English.
We are open Tuesday to Saturday, serving up traditional Neapolitan pizzas every day. We also host many different events, which you can find out more about on our events page.
Everything we serve is carefully sourced, created in our kitchen, and cooked in our wood-fired oven.
Downstairs we have a takeaway kiosk serving coffee, homemade cakes, and bread baked in the falling heat of the pizza oven – real stone baked “hearth bread”. We also serve Sicilian style sfincione pizza slices.
The Hearth is the culmination of my forty years baking and catering experience, following in the footsteps of my father and his father. I hope that their knowledge and passion is reflected in The Hearth.
