The Rose Hill Tavern is to close after being sold by Enterprise Inns, the latest Brighton pub to be offloaded by the chain.

The 144-year-old pub in Rose Hill Terrace off London Road will hold a series of events to mark its final weekend from Friday, May 16 to Sunday, May 18.

It was put on the market earlier this month for £350,000, with potential for residential conversion. It is now listed as sold, subject to contract. 

Residents are attempting to save it from being turned into flats by petitioning the council to make it a community asset. If successful, this would hold up any sale for six months to give them the chance to raise the money to buy the pub themselves.

The Rose Hill Tavern is the lastest Brighton pub to close with the threat of being turned into housing.

The London Unity in Islingword Road, also owned by Enterprise Inns, closed last year, and is set to be turned into two houses. 

The Cuthbert in Freshfield Road closed two weeks ago, again being sold with the potential to be turned into homes.

And The Newmarket Arms in Bear Road was sold earlier this year, and is now the subject of a planning application to turn it into three homes.
