Lewes FC is delighted to announce that we are teaming up with local brewery Only With Love as our hospitality partner.
Many of you will know former directors Steve Keegan and Roger Warner, who were keen to ensure their new venture could continue to support the club’s role in the community.
The new partnership will see Only With Love provide the club with a wealth of experience and direction in setting a new standard for drinks, food, entertainment and events – both on match days and in midweek.
As well as kitting out The Rook Inn with a solid attacking lineup of all our best drinks – with a strong emphasis on healthy AF (alcohol-free) options, the best of our craft beers, classic Harvey’s Best, and other star guest signings from the local brewery scene – we’ll also be helping to improve matchday food offerings, and introducing a new bar at the Ham Lane end of the ground, to ensure thirsty fans get more access to the good stuff, at great prices (meaning more bar options, faster service, better drinks, and better value for home and away fans).
New programme of activity and events
In addition to this, Lewes FC and Only With Love will be working together on a new programme of activity and events to give more people more access to the facilities that we can provide, such as: supporters gatherings, club owners nights, live matches on the big screen TV, quiz nights, and other community meet ups. (Rumour also has it that there will be more Karaoke sessions).
Our common goal is to make the Dripping Pan a broader and better destination for fans and the local community.
Lewes FC is a fan-owned club and Only With Love want to help do more to make the place a home for all kinds of different groups, with football as a common, uniting thread.
Head of Hospitality role
Key to all of this is a new role at the club. We’re also recruiting a new Head of Hospitality who will work closely with the senior teams at Only With Love and Lewes FC to help us to deliver on all of the above.
If you have great experience in the hospitality sector and you like a good challenge then you can apply for that one here.
All applications will go direct to Only With Love, and we will be reviewing them quickly to get a winning team in place for the season properly kicks off.
