Pop up pub

With the current closure of the Trevor arms due to maintenance work, the Glynde, Beddingham and Firle memorial parade will be running a pop up pub in the reading rooms on Sunday (see attached pic)
So whether you're thirsty after a walk on the downs or just fancy something different, why not pop in for a drink.

Excellent. Will walk over. May I ask BTW why the tattered Harveys branded Trevor arms sign has gone back up after closure of pub? It hasn't been Harveys since the new regime in Glynde. If I were Harveys I would consider it an affront to be associated with a long termpub closure. ( I say this because I have seen no activity on refurbishment since January although all the garden seats have disappeared -maybe they are being refurbished?)

As much as I love a pint of harveys they carry the can for some of this iirc. Great brewers but not the best landlords

Ah I thought Harvey's were tenants and glynde estates the landlord. Perhaps I am wrong?

Think the sign is just there, due to the one the latest tenants had has been taken down and that was behind it - not sure why the new ones were taken down though.
Hopefully whatever is being done to the building is done quickly and back to being a village pub.

I happened to be walking past when the signs were coming down. The newer signs looked out of place on the pub and never suited the beautiful village. The old Harvey's sign was underneath the the newer version. I give my best wishes to those next planning to run the pub I'm sure they will make a success of it.

But why put up tatty faded sign or if as you say it was behind it take that one down too? Especially when Harvey's are nothing to do with it? Btw cannot cut and paste but the whatpub site entry has a picture. It does not look like there was a tatty old sign beneath it and why paint out the Trevor arms on the front? Very odd.

Lewes is beautiful and I have been considering moving there for a while. I am now thinking of buying a place on Friars... more
