Meridian Pub - get facts straight

IS Margot Sims an all too familiar case of a ‘newcomer’ speaking for Lewesians? (letters, August 10). Perhaps she ought to get her facts right.

The Meridian Pub was not built in 1989, I used to visit it in the early 60s when it was The Pewter Pot and before that it was the Rifleman.
