Cheers! New lease of life for pub


A NEW era has dawned for an historic Lewes pub after a massive facelift.

The Black Horse, in Western Road, reopened last week to wide acclaim.

A five-week programme of complete refurbishment of the interior has seen the original two bars merged into one.

The “tired” facilities have taken on a new lease of life.

Those there to celebrate the relaunch (above) included Lewes MP Norman Baker and the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Ruth O’Keeffe.

Delighted landlord John Connolly said: “I’m overwhelmed by the transformation, Trade has been absolutely fabulous – I couldn’t have wished for a better weekend.”
