The Crow and Gate in Crowborough reopens

CUSTOMERS enjoyed Champagne, food and wine at the formal reopening of a popular Crowborough pub last Thursday.

Landlord David Sulway said: “We aim to be the perfect country pub whether customers want a relaxing pint of real ale or a candlelit dinner in the dining area. We’re delighted this magnificent old building has had such a loving and tasteful restoration.”

The menu includes best of British seasonal flavours with two courses for an £8 fixed price. As well as wines, drinkers can enjoy Harvey’s ales, Shepherd Neame Spitfire and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.
