Further Local Update

I wrote here only as recently as August, about the new landlady of my local. Alas she didn't like it. Despite having worked in a pub before, being the boss just didn't suit her, so yesterday, we saw her off. It is a pity as we liked her and she liked us. She just didn't like being a landlady.

 Fortunately we have a successor. We know little about him, but no doubt soon will. At least our beloved Tavern will stay open. I have had a chat to the new man and he seems all right, but then again, he hasn't taken over yet,so we'll just have to wait and see.  This will be my sixth new landlord/lady in my time as a regular there.  My mates have seen even more.

Here's hoping our new man likes it and gives us some stability.

Bumpy Lane - dry hopped Lees Bitter was in splendid form yesterday.

Rapidly changing licensees can be fatal for a pub. I've seen it happen so many times. It's not necessarily that the pub closes, but it can go into serious decline with regulars moving elsewhere. I hope this works out.

Jaysus,Tandy,six landlords/ladies since you've been drinking there.
Haven't you got the hint yet ?

Er. They have PPT. :-)

I think the problem is that the boozer is in a poor position for a Tesco Express, so unfortunately it will struggle on as a pub for years to come. Ah well.

That's one thing that won't happen. Middle of nowhere.

I remember the picture.
Up a snowy lane.
It must be brilliant walking home pissed on a moonlight night.

Change can sometimes be a good thing, but not if it happens too often.

Pubs, and people, need stability. Hope the next incumbent of the Tandle Hill Tavern manages to achieve it for you and your fellow regulars.
