The Dolphin Pub in Dominion Road, Worthing has closed confirms owners Punch Taverns.
A Punch Taverns spokesman said: “The Dolphin is one of the Pubs in our estate earmarked for disposal. We can confirm that we are in advanced negotiations with a prospective purchaser. Our wish was for the site to continue to trade under our ownership until the such time that the sale was finalised, but, unfortunately, our operator made the decision to leave, hence the current closure.”
Earlier this year there was speculation the site would become a Tesco Express.
