The Wiki Sussex Pub Guide Project was conceived and designed by Rex Gibbons and Rob Pine. They love technology, (their computers, tablets and mobiles), and going to a pub for a couple of pints. They pondered long and hard, (deep thought), about how they could bring their passions together, and came up with the Wiki Sussex Pub Guide. Put another way, this is the story of how much fun a couple of chaps of a certain age (SHOGS) can have whilst thoroughly indulging themselves, and having great fun!

 

Rex Gibbons

Rex has a background in oil and worked for Esso, and is an IT enthusiast.
He is an expert in, (would you Adam and Eve it), martial arts.

July 2015

Rex has had to leave the project to devote more time to looking after his amazing 96 year old Mum!

 

Rob Pine

Rob is a retired Police Officer and IT enthusiast.
These days he runs his own web hosting and web design, business: www.pineinternet.uk
Rob has been 'doing websites', (and databases) for 20 years. If you (or he) can dream it, then he is a man that can build it.

Rex and Rob are both beer and pub enthusiasts and met about eight years ago when they were both appalled by the fact that at that time their local branch of CAMRA was one of only a handful of branches in the UK that did not have a website.

Rex soon found himself elected to the CAMRA branch committee and he volunteered to set up a branch website. He asked Rob for some assistance with setting this up. In six months, with a little help from a few others, Rex had moved the branch from being sad, sorry, and having no website, to one of only a handful of UK CAMRA branches to have all of the pubs in their area online (184 pubs). Rex was also responsible for making sure that the North Sussex CAMRA branch were one of the first branches in the UK to manage to input information on every pub on to CAMRA's national pub website project - 'What Pub'.

As soon as Rex had put 186 North Sussex Pubs on line he saw that the same cried out to be done fo all of the Sussex Pubs. But, for five years this 'project' remained on the back burner, because of the sheer scale of the task.

But times have changed. The technology has improved enormously, and so has people's awareness (and appetite) for it. But the big catalyst and enabler for this project was a lecture given by James (Jimmy) Wales aka 'Mr Wikipedia'. If he can set about putting the sum of human knowledge on line and making it available to the rest of us for free, then getting an estimated 1,100 pubs, 20 breweries and their beers properly documented, whilst making a jolly useful Guide in the process, looks to be very possible, and not such an enormous task after all.

So there it is in a nut shell. That is the 'Wiki Sussex Pub Guide'. The Pub Guide unlike any other - as it is written entirely by people like you - especially for people like you!  To every contributor, visitor, and user of this guide, we say, "Chocks away, and tally ho! We hope that you enjoy your trip to the pub, and that the beer is good when you get there. Cheers"!

A list of brewers will go here!

Cider & Perry

In Sussex we are extremely fortunate to have The National Collection of Cider & Perry.
This a unique celebration of our national fruit.
Visitors can taste, compare and buy from a range of over 100 different draught ciders and perries (including their own Pookhill Cider).

As well as a huge range of meads, country wines and fruit liqueurs, the Collection holds a carefully selected range of draught and bottled ales. It also stocks English cider brandies, apple gin, apple vodka and apple eaux-de-vie. Fresh apple juice is pressed daily, and an apple-pressing service is offered throughout the late summer and autumn.

Congratulations Giles and Ruth Thompson and their team at the fabulous Earl of March, Lavant for becoming our December 2017 'featured pub of the month'.
earl of march 2

Visit the Earl of March, Lavant.

Welcome!

The aim of this project is 'just' to:

  • See all of the (estimated) 1100 Sussex public houses (pubs) listed on this website!
    (Yes, there are times when this looked like trying to eating an elephant)!
  • Develop a unique pub directory and drinks guide!
  • Help celebrate and promote the 'Best of Sussex':-
    The Sussex pubs, brewers, beers, cider and perry, winemakers and our three distilleries!

If Mr Wikipedia himself, James Wales, can dream to put the sum of human knowledge online, then shouldn't we be able to list a 'mere' 1100 Sussex pubs? Yes we should! So, in the true wiki way, which is to work together, we can roll up our sleeves to make this happen, (and have as much fun as we can - and a pint or two along the way)?

Our pubs are a great national asset, and they should be supported celebrated and documented. This will be good for pubs, the people of  Sussex, and for the very many visitors to Sussex. We have built the tools to enable anyone 'out there', who is passionate about beer and pubs, to easily get their local pub(s), breweries and beers listed.

Anyone can contribute to this project!

Anyone is welcome to contribute to this project, and, in order to contribute, all you need to do is:

All submitted listings will be checked, (for formatting, typos, 'howlers', and to make reasonably sure that they are 'legal, decent, and honest'), before being published. Contributors will be sent an email and / or text to let them know that their article has been published). They will also be given 'editor rights' to their listed articles so that they keep them up to date.

Website visitors!

You will be able to view all of our listed pubs, breweries and beers and award them marks out of ten using our five star rating system (in half star increments).

Please have fun and enjoy this project!

We set this project up as a spare time, 'fun' project, (and it has been). We love our computers, lap tops, tablets, phones, and going to the pub for a pint of two. Then we thought that it would be even more fun to put them all together - so we have!

We hope that you have as much fun as we have had by contributing to the Wiki Sussex Pub Guide Project, whilst also enjoying (and supporting) our great Sussex pubs - so have fun, folks, and lots of it!

NB

    • Too much fun can be harmful to you, so please enjoy yourselves responsibly!
    • Too much elephant can be harmful to you, so please enjoy elephants responsibly!
    • Please enjoy yourself whilst helping us to eat this elephant!
