Selsey could soon be hosting a micro pub that will be selling ales that are produced locally. The pub which might soon be standing where a tea room once stood in Selsey is being hyped as selling ‘real ales’. The application has been submitted to the council by Edward Sye who believes that the establishment could get some real demand at 145 High Street. In his planning documents, Sye argues that a lot of research has been done to see whether there may be a demand for a micro pub in Selsey.
He states that at the moment there is a population of around 10,700 people in the town and they are served by only a few membership clubs and five traditional public houses. He continues by saying the population rises significantly during the summer as many holiday goers come to visit Bunn Leisure. He then states that his intention is to sell authentic ciders and ales which are produced within 35 miles of the area. This includes East Hampshire and Sussex.
The micro pub is supposed to be open from noon to 9 pm from Tuesday to Saturday and from noon to 4 pm on Sundays, in the event that it gets the approval of the council. However, at the moment the site is serving as a tea room. There will be no changes done to the outside or interior of the building in case the plan gets the approval. The planning application can be seen on the Chichester District Council’s website. Use the reference 17/01269/FUL.
