Bus to the Pub

The Sussex Bus to the Pub group (BttP) has been running for some years and enables members from all parts of Sussex to visit pubs with good beer without having to rely on a car for transport. Varying pub numbers are visited during each trip but members can choose how many they wish to include. Routes are explained so that if walking any distance is involved or crossing difficult terrain such as muddy paths, members can make informed choices.

Please be aware that due to this programme being planned months in advance that bus time tables could be changed or worse still cut completely by the time any trip actually takes place. For any queries on these trips, please contact Max Malkin at ku.oc.eciffotsopym@xam.surstamreeb or phone him on 01243 828394.
