Stamp House, Bersted, Sussex



The Stamp House was situated on Chichester Road and was earlier known as The Rising Sun. This pub opened in 1895 and was demolished in 1957 and replaced by The Bersted Tavern. The first landlord, Richard Sharp was a keen collector of postage stamps and in 1882 a customer bet him that he couldn't decorate an entire room of the pub with stamps (see photo below).
