Bucks Green Christmas Horse Custom

Where: Bucks Green, Sussex at the Fox Inn
When: Christmas Day
Time: Opening time 11 am with horse arriving around noon


While most folks are slaving over hot stoves or opening their presents, the locals at the Fox Inn at Bucks Green have quite a different event on Christmas Day each year. A horse walks through the bar at the pub preceding Christmas lunch, perhaps in order to preserve an ancient right of way, though nobody seems to know the origin of the custom for certain. The horse is usually treated to crisps and beer (well, it is Christmas after all….) then after his visit lunch can be served.
