Harveys said it was committed to The Bridge Inn in Newhaven after rumours were going round the brewer had pulled out of the venture.
Digital media manager for Harveys Marie Welsh said: Harveys are committed to The Bridge. It is not on the market. “
The Lewes brewer bought the pub last year but said it needed a lot of work before it was ready to open.
The pub was built in the 1620s and is the second oldest building in the town, after St Michael’s Church.
