Pub of the Year 2019: the Hornet Alehouse, Chichester

Congratulations to the Hornet Alehouse in Chichester on being voted our Pub of the Year for 2019.

The Hornet Alehouse is a new entry to Chichester’s beer scene, but it’s made a strong start, with four or more real ales, four real ciders, and four craft kegs — not to mention a good range of bottles and cans to drink in or take away.

If that’s not enough, there are regular “Meet the Brewer” events, and a “100 Club” — drink 100 different beers (not in the same session!) and get a T-shirt and discounts.
