Closure deplored

As Amberley residents my wife and I deplore the closure of The Black Horse. This village is known as the pearl of Sussex and attracts masses of visitors from all around the county and indeed worldwide.

The very thought if it’s not having a pub at its centre is incongruous.

Recently, it has failed to make a reasonable profit. A publican of no more than average ability could turn it into a resounding success.

The proximity of Amberley Village Stores is greatly to its commercial advantage. Both are in the High Street along which all visitors pass.
