Eastgate Brewery, 4 The Hornet, Chichester, West Sussex

The Eastgate pub is a grade II listed 18th century building. By 1802 it was occupied by Stephen Wooldridge who had a brewhouse on the site by 1811. By February 1858 it had been acquired by brewer and wine & spirit merchant John Goldring. But his stock and brewing plant were offered for sale by auction on 19 June 1874.

It was later run by George Phillips as a grocery and wine shop, but we are not sure he continued brewing, as brewing had ceased by about 1879, when it is thought Gales of Horndean leased the pub.

Gales purchased the pub outright in 1929, and from them it went to Fullers.
