Pub landlords Paul and Yvonne Crease are celebrating their 30 years at The Arun View Inn in Littlehampton.

Littlehampton MP Nick Gibb visited the pub on Friday to congratulate them on their milestone.

Paul and Yvonne are the managers and lessees of the Arun View. The freehold is owned by Enterprise Inns and representatives from the company were also there on Friday.

The couple went into partnership with the previous lessees, Ken and Margaret Hancock 30 years ago. After the Hancocks retired, they bought out the business and have run it together ever since.

Mr Gibb said: “The Arun View is a landmark institution in Littlehampton.

“Sited on the banks of the River Arun adjacent to the footbridge, it is a hugely popular venue for drinks and good food for locals and tourists alike. Famous for its fish and chips, it now serves some 300 people on a Sunday lunchtime.

“It is down to the dedication and attention to detail of Paul and Yvonne Crease that the Arun View is so popular and such an important part of Littlehampton’s tourist business.

“Congratulations to Paul and Yvonne for all they have achieved over the last 30 years.”
