In 2012, the pub changed ownership/management and re-opened after refurbishment. It’s now a freehouse with beers, for example Brighton Best and Hophead, from several Sussex breweries. Yay!
Rather strangely, there is a gravestone, of the albino son of a former innkeeper, in the front garden. The grave is in the church but the gravestone was removed by the vicar, apparently because of the inscription, so the parents put the memorial in their pub garden.
