Council Chairman pulls the first pint to mark local re-opening


17 May 2021


Horsham District Council Chairman Cllr Karen Burgess performed a very important duty this morning (17 May) at the Sussex Barn in north Horsham, as the pub restaurant opened its doors to indoor hospitality for the first time in many months.

The Chairman was invited by the venue’s manager Mr Lucian Hornea to pull the first pint.

"It was a pleasure to be invited along. I am really pleased that this family oriented venue can at last reopen as a result of the Government’s lockdown restrictions being lifted, allowing people to eat and drink inside."

Venue manager Lucian Hornea added: "We are thrilled to be able to reopen properly. It feels fantastic to welcome our customers back indoors. We are a venue for the whole family and very much look forward to being at the heart of the local community going forward."
