The Cuthbert pub in Brighton set to close

The Argus: Pub set to close Pub set to close

Landlords of a pub will be calling time for the last time this weekend after the freehold for the property was sold.

Robin Koehorst and Susanna Searle will finish trading at The Cuthbert, in Freshfield Road, in Brighton, at 6pm on Easter Sunday.

The pair reopened the pub almost two years ago, and will have drink specials and a limited menu available for the remaining days.

so you'd prefer an empty building that would inevitably be taken over by squatters as it's sadly not a viable option as a pub

That's the third pub closure story in as many days!

It's sad, but being at the top of a hill it's not going to get much passing trade.

brightonaire - bundle of laughs. Will you be happy when all pubs and bars and other dens of iniquity have gone? We could all meet at the knitting circle, I suppose.

you think 'anaesthetising' with alcohol means having a 'good' time....... all I ever see are people who's words slur in rhythm with their suppressed brains causing them to lose cerebral sharpness... what follows is usually raised voices, dimwit conversation, abusiveness and poor motor neurone skills that often lead to crimes such as assaults. d and d, wife beating and other types of domestic abuse, accidental self harm etc... etc etc... and that's what's brainwashed into people to have a good time... from Macbeth...
Macd. What three things does drink especially provoke?
Port. Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance; therefore, much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery: it makes him, and it mars him; it sets him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him, and disheartens him; makes him stand to, and not stand to; in conclusion, equivocates him in a sleep, and, giving him the lie, leaves him.

Well you sound like a fun person! Each to their own though,so you carry on staring down your pinched nose at us enjoying a few beers with our friends and lamenting the slow but constant erosion of a great British tradition: the local pub.

It's been a very bad week for Brighton boozers.
The Cuthbert and Newmarket Arms have been lost to housing, while the property vultures are circling over the Rosehill Tavern.
Whatever you think of these pubs, once they are lost, they are gone forever from the community and we need more than smart phones and shopping to nourish the soul.
However, there's one place that is nearly ready to open four years after being closed down.
Thanks to a few pig-headed residents, a superhero Vicar, hundreds of shareholders and a government grant, the old Bevendean Pub has been transformed and is set to become the first co-op pub on a housing estate in the UK. Building work has now finished but we need just a bit more money to get us over the finishing line.
Instead of brick dust we can nearly taste our first pint!
Our strapline has always been that it will be so much more than just a pub and one of the reasons we got the grant was because of letters of support from groups as diverse as the local brownies, NHS, Albion in the Community and residents groups. It will be a community hub, something for everyone, somewhere for people to meet, to chew over the day's events and get to know our neighbours.
We still need £40,000 to kit out the kitchen, fit and stock the bar, put in the cellar and build the pub garden.
So can you help? Have you brought your share yet? Could you afford to invest in a few more? This is your chance to not only be part of a little piece of history but also play your part in bucking the trend of 18 pubs closing every week.
Come along to our drop in day on Sunday 27th April between 12 noon-4pm and see what a group of determined people can achieve.
