Dave Jenkins is the new Landlord at the new look Fox Inn at Rudgwick.
The refurbishment has meant the outside of the pub has much more seating available and is family friendly, the garden has been re-landscaped too.
Inside the menu is now focused on offering traditional pub food at an affordable price range.
The 15th Century public house is owned by Dorset based family brewers Hall & Woodhouse who organised the refurbishment.
Dave Jenkins has had a wealth of experience running pubs: “I am delighted to be managing the Fox Inn, it is a beautiful public house in stunning Sussex countryside. We have developed a new menu which will enable more people to visit the Fox on a regular basis because of the range of food we offer and the competitive pricing,” he said.
Mark Woodhouse, Hall & Woodhouse Chairman said: “We are really excited to have the Fox Inn open and looking fantastic. Dave and his team are doing a fantastic job and the new food menu will enable guests to visit the Fox Inn with the knowledge that they will always find something they like to eat as there is so much variety. We look forward to supporting Dave in the future and wish his every success at this public house.”
