Lewes railway station is a two minute walk from the Dripping Pan. When you exit the main entrance, turn left and follow the path over the bridge then bear left at the roundabout. The ground will be in front of you.

By Car

The Dripping Pan is at the very start of Mountfield Road, directly behind the station. If you are coming from the north or west, turn off the A27 for Lewes and turn right (signposted Rodmell and Piddinghoe) after about a mile at the first set of traffic lights, adjacent to the prison. Follow that road until you get to a mini roundabout by The Swan pub and turn left. Continue along this road and over the mini-roundabout straight into Mountfield Road where the ground  is on your right hand side.


There are limited car parking spaces in the Sussex Downs College and Priory School car parks down Mountfield Road past the ground (£2). Metered street parking is available and there is a pay and display car park directly outside the ground (operating 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday) but please be aware that Lewes has quite a number of ‘keen’ traffic wardens patrolling the town so please purchase a ticket where required. It should also be noted that this car park does not belong to the club so unfortunately, we cannot reserve any spaces.

You are free to drink your beer/cider/wine/gin/ginger beer anywhere in the ground although we would kindly ask to dispose of cups in a bin when done.  

If you are lucky enough to be watching the game from one of our beach huts then make your presence known at the guest gate, to the right of the main turnstiles where you will be escorted to your luxurious abode for the game.

If you are a guest from the opposition and you have your official league pass then you will be more than welcome in our Board-a-kabin before the game, at half-time and at full-time. You cannot miss it - it is painted in red and black stripes and is adjacent to the Main Stand.

Requests for media passes, scouting passes and generally, any other passes, can be made to either or no less than 24 hours prior to the game. Please note that any photographers who want to work pitchside need to have their own hi-viz jacket. There is Wi-Fi available for the working media in our Main Stand as well as power points at the media desks (first come, first served but be warned if you sit in RookMeister's perch).


Well behaved dogs are welcome. Naughty ones may be asked to leave by stewards, for the comfort of other spectators. Water bowls are provided around the ground for canines only. There is a water fountain just outside the ground in the Mountfield Road car park.

What you cannot bring into the Dripping Pan

Please do not bring your alcohol into the ground. Our Stewards will confiscate it and enjoy their Saturday night a lot more. Musical instruments are fine, although we'd recommend full drum kits or grand pianos are left at home. No loudspeakers, megaphones, flags with offensive slogans, pyrotechnics, weapons, illegal drugs or smooth jazz please.


There are reserved spaces for fans with limited mobility at the top of the covered Philcox Terrace including access to an accessible toilet.


Please note that Lewes Football Club does not produce a printed match day programme. Instead you can access a free of charge, online copy on the day of the game at
