A PUB in Pevensey is set to reopen with a new name chosen from a type of butterfly.

The former Coopers Arms on Hailsham Road will become the ‘Holly Blue’ when it opens up for business this Monday, June 18.

Marston’s Inns and Taverns have refurbished the pub with a smart interior and garden, promoted as a Milestone Carvery with draught ales.

The Holly Blue pub is an attractive silver-blue butterfly of the same name that is native to the south east of England at this time of year.

New manager Centh McGee has been working with Marston’s for several years and arrives at the Holly Blue from another pub in Horsham. 

Mr Mckee said: “We have retained the majority of the existing staff at the pub and employed 15 additional team members from the local area.  A rigorous training programme is currently ongoing in readiness for the opening, when customers can expect to receive great service and high quality food at every visit.”
