The Wheel, Burwash Common to re-open with new owners
Having been without a ‘local’ for several months, the people of Burwash Common, and surrounding area, can look forward to their only pub reopening at the end of February 2019. Sam Maynard, the new owner, commented:
“We are very excited to be taking over The Wheel, we hope to open at the end of February and look forward to creating a family pub, where we can cater for all tastes and everyone is welcome. It is very important to us that the pub is at the heart of the community.”
Sam and his partner currently own the popular White Hart in Wadhurst, so they are no strangers to running a pub. They will be moving one of their chefs from Wadhurst to The Wheel to ensure a high standard of food. Where possible they use local suppliers and the menu will have something to appeal to meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans, and they will continue to serve Harvey’s beers alongside a few new ones. Anyone interested in joining the team at The Wheel can contact Sam via the White Hart Facebook page.
Sam has spent most of his professional life in pubs and hotels in East Sussex, he will be behind the bar when The Wheel opens ready to great you.
