After consulting with the council we have decided that it is safe to re-start music inside the ER. However, we need to comply with existing Covid restriction, so it is seating on tables of up to 6, table service and social distancing. So space is restricted and for now to kick things Les and Pete AKA The Beer Jukebox are playing weekly on Tuesday (except Tues 22nd June) evenings from 7.30pm (ish). Table arrangements mean that we really only have 3 tables, two of 4 and one of 2 so not quite Glastonbury! If you want to come along it would be best to book, just email us here
For those that aren’t aware of The Beer Jukebox, Les & Pete both play guitar and have a enormous range of songs they can sing, and always open to requests, Les used to be a professional musician and played for the Scottish folk band The Tannerhill Weavers. Pete is also a very accomplished semi-professional guitar player. The duo are often accompanied by Andy on Saxophone and Flute; Andy “rubberlegs” Ferguson plays for a Ska band called the Ska Toons who can often bee seen performing in and around the Lewes area.
Don’t miss this display of local talent!
In case you hadn’t noticed there have ben a number of new breweries popping up in Sussex during the pandemic. We have been doing our best to seek them out and feature some of their beers
Here are three that we have recently contacted and acquired some great new beers:
A family run, independent brewery in rural East Sussex. Making modern and traditional beers in can, bottle, keg and cask. They also have a Tap Room at Roger Daltrey’s Lakedown Trout Fishery
Founded in 2020 (in lockdown #1 & #2) by Steve (the guy behind Holler Brewery) and Roger (a guy who drank too much Holler beer) in the heart of Sussex. Only With Love is a new kind of brewery; sustainably created, packaged and delivered. They create kombucha and beer for better minds, bodies and spirits.
Set-up by Rohan Hill, the man behind the Shed Brewing Co., and Tim Pitts, who, with Nick Southon, has taken up the gauntlet of the Horsham Beer Festival since the much loved Gareth Jones of Beer Essential passed away.
Also they will be featuring in our Beer Festival 16th – 18th July
