The Runaway Café has always been a popular watering hole with travellers.

The coffee shop is a forum for discussion and debate, as travellers argue and gossip to a background of classical music. It is well known for the lively conversation, and friendly service. Everyone knows The Runaway - from years of waiting for a train or even the shortest one-off visit.

There's an interesting and wide variety of customers pass through - pop stars, writers, journalists, politicians, civil servants, bankers, station porters and just ordinary folk.

The Runaway has been part of Lewes train station since the 1980's and has been a keen hot spot ever-since. The Café bases its foundations on tradition and traditional values.
