In the final recording of our series following one West Sussex pub through lockdown, MA editor Ed Bedington went back to the Lockhart Tavern in Haywards Heath to find out whether their decision to delay reopening by a few weeks has paid off.

To catch up on this video series, see the first three instalments below:

  • Video: Pub boss reacts to closure news​ - The announcement by the Prime Minister that all pubs, restaurants and cafes must close has left many in the industry reeling, despite growing expectation of the announcement. The Morning Advertiser met up with the director of the Pale Moon Pub Company, James Cuthbertson, to get his immediate reaction to the announcement.
  • ‘We’re not all in the same boat’​ - It’s been more than five weeks since the Prime Minister told UK pubs to close. The Morning Advertiser went back to visit James Cuthbertson, operator of the Lockhart Tavern in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, to see how it was adapting to the ongoing situation.
  • To open, or not to open…​ - Not all pubs will be flinging their doors open on Saturday 4 July, with many choosing to wait and see how the public reacts to the new situation.
