Queen of Spain eats melon sorbet at Jevington pub

Last year, when I visited the UK in March, I walked across the Sussex Downs with my brother Mike. We stopped for a couple of pints at the ‘Eight Bells’ in Jevington. 

It transpires that 3 months later another Spanish resident visited that tiny village – Queen Sofia!

I hasten to add that our meal was more down to earth – cheese roll and chips!

The newspaper report is not entirely accurate in that the ‘Hungry Monk’ is a restaurant and not a pub.
