Original Cafe in 1944
I had the great fortune after 20 years of searching to find a postcard showing my grandfather’s refreshment hut adjacent to the Royal Pavilion. This great find happened at Lewes Market, and shows the original wooden hut in 1944 by the side of the old Brighton Road. The cafe was here from 1941 to 1950 when the Council constructed the current building between March and October 1950.
The Pavilion Cafe has its own website and if you would like to find out more about its history go to www.paviliongardenscafe.co.uk
