OBB was taken out of the Plough in Whitby some years ago.

Regrettably, I don't think the the original post on this thread said cask was removed from the Jollies? So I don't know where all this has come from?

Early summer.

The poster makes no mention of obb being keg that I can see. And in my opinion to take out cask is madness, unless its not selling and if its not selling you got to ask why?  The old downward spiral, don't keep it right, nobody drinks it so it goes sour and down you go.

Obb cask out sells all the draft at ours. Hope it remains so as the keg version is rubbish.

Obb was cask last time I was there?

You people that go on and on about Sams crisps really need to get a life.

Thank you for your opinion. Does that include yourself as you have now commented?

True Hump  and NYCC hate each other passionately.

Funny enough! I quite like beef or C&O when they actually taste of something or indeed taste of what the packet says they should. Last weeks were pretty horrible but will try again this week no doubt.

Tried em both again last week and I have to regrettably say that they are now horrible, truly horrible. Brought some home for the Mrs who quite likes the beef n she thew em straight in the bin after trying just one. Burnt bacon she described the beef as. They must have changed supplier or the supplier has changed the flavorings to god knows what. It's only my opinion btw.
When H tried the beef with his half I'd be surprised if he doesn't spit em out.

On a lighter note, the OBB was truly superb.

The demise of the Castle Hotel.

I fitted a replacement electricity meter in the hotel the day before this happend. You can imagine my thoughts when I woke up to this news on the local radio the morning after. Turned out to be a fire work apparently....

been in tonight and selling version of prosecco called Pacifico. According to her indoors it was great. Anybody else had any.  C==Cheers::

Closing the stable door after the horse has run off springs to mind!

Haven't got a contact, just wanted to know if I get employed by Samuel Smith's

It will likely be a month but could be a week!

Can anyone tell me how much notice a manager has to give?

It will or should say in your contract of employment.

Got two beef and one C&H tonight as per usual.
Both beef smelt and tasted of smokey bacon and the c & o smelt and tasted like burnt Chinese takeaway oil or oily spring rolls!
Whats going on in the factory we have to wonder!!!!

Personally, it is the only SS pub I know that doesn't do hand pulled OBB, but I am not saying you are wrong.

You should really look at the trip advisor reviews, that place does get some stick!

At a guess, I'd say 50% don't have it. Especially in London.

I sort of agree with the ban, but looking at Tripadvisor reviews, they are taking it too far, even a small group of elderly women were refused service.

Personally I don't visit that pub as they don't even serve hand pulled OBB.

No cask OBB is not unusual unfortunately. And he's even taking it out in some locations and replacing with the crappy keg version.

Not heard that one and I go in three times a week at least! Completely ridiculous if it's true.
