PUB owners have said that new roadworks are affecting their business.

Landlords at the Cock Inn near Ringmer have called on East Sussex County Council to make it clear to motorists that the pub remains open despite road closure signs on the A26.

Roadworks are scheduled on the A26 between Ringmer and Little Horsted for the next two weeks, between 8pm and 6am.

The pub’s management posted a message from their Twitter account that the road closure had been “very disruptive” to the pub’s business.
