• This will be a sad loss for historic Rochford. Tradional pubs are having a difficult time throughout the country and a variety of creative solutions are required (cheap beer being one!) But this building is worth keeping.

    • Hard to work out Conservative policy on pub losses. In Wickford, MP Mark Francois was gleefully promoting Wetherspoons coming to the town. In Rochford, will we hear from any politician about the loss of independent pubs?
