Marco Pierre White ends partnership with Sussex pub
Written by:

The Rainbow Inn, a restaurant in Cooksbridge,East Sussex, has ended its partnership with Marco Pierre White.

The pub has reverted to traditional pub fare, rather than the fine-dining food it was previously offering in response to customer demand, according to a report in local paper, The Argus.

Pierre White’s departure was described as “amicable”.

A spokesman from the pub said: “Marco has taken his business interests elsewhere. He was a partner in the business but is a partner in the business no longer.

“[We are] turning it back into a country pub with a restaurant. We are still going to have food. We will be very much a gastropub like before.

“We will have a cosy bar area as people really liked the bar area.”
