We are all aware that local pubs are being closed at the rate of several hundred per year.
Therefore it is very pleasant to see this trend being reversed in Horsham.
I am pleased to see The Plough at Rusper has re-opened and there is news about the Frog and Nightgown in Wimland Road.
This was closed some time ago and scheduled for redevelopment as housing. However, it is currently being refurbished as a pub and will be opening in May.
So, remembering to take a designated driver, use them or lose them. Please let me get to the bar first though!
So that just leaves the Fountain in Roffey for us to force a reopening. It is still for sale.
