I mentioned here about one of our better pubs not doing so well. As E had a work appointment in Manchester and was therefore at home earlier, we found ourselves walking up there again. We got there about seven and the pub was quite busy. When we left around a quarter to ten it was very busy indeed, with a celebration of some sort going on in the function room and the bar packed with ordinary drinkers. The smokers outside seemed to be plentiful too, a beautiful evening making up for their banishment outside. But let's not dwell on that.

Ironically the aforementioned landlady had a night off, but no doubt she enjoyed counting the takings later.

Nice to hear it's picked up.

I'm convinced it's cos everyone's back from holiday and had their first pay packet, though.

Although in a previous comments thread on this subject, Jeff said he'd been busy throughout the summer, he just got *even* busier. I think being quiet in July and August is normal for pubs in locations other than tourist towns.
