General Discussion / Re: Anerley Arms

In London, took the opportunity Sunday before last to 'tick off' the last London pub yet to visit, the furthest out and most southerly.

Good effort pal! have you visited The Horse & Groom in The City? I'm never sure if it should be included on the London pub list as its really a restaurant. I went to The Anerley a few years ago - must go back as its a quality pub.

Cannot be true, why would he destroy his own buisness like that,it will just be a rumour put about by someone wanting to cause trouble.

Seriously?!  If he didn't want to destroy his own business then why would he hit the headlines by throwing customers out and sacking managers over a bit of swearing, or by banning bikers from a pub. Why would he remove signage from every pub and vehicle, why would he treat his staff like 19th-century mill workers? These are not rational actions, and there's plenty more.

Like already said it's his train set and he can do what he wants with it. But it's our money and we can spend it when and were we want. Maybe Humphry should remind himself how his family made their fortune (selling beer to the tap room classes) I know lots of public houses how would welcome my 3K p/a hobby it only takes a few regulars to change pub to have a big effect on a pubs weekly takings. Most pub chains spend millions trying to attract customers in not hatching ways to discourage them. I hope this is resolved soon I'm already missing my bags of plain cheese & onion crisps.

I can only speak for me but as a motorcyclist of 37 years plus and someone who enjoys four pints seven days a week and a fan of Sam Smith's pub's and products have already turned my back on Sam Smiths until this issue is resolved. On a visit to York we bypassed all the Sam Smith's pub's and went to Wetherspoons. So that's money out of Sam Smith's pocket into Tim Martin's. I hope all other motorcyclists do the same, this type of discrimination went out in the seventy's.

With all due respect to you - I doubt they will miss the money, turnover or whatever.

How do they know you use a bike if you park it round the corner, or if you decide to go in a car cos it's raining, can you go in? Or is it a clothing issue? I don't have a bike but I have a Belstaff jacket so would I be banned? Or if you are 95 years old and use a Honda 50 to get about on, are you still banned? Also, is this a nation wide ban?

So many questions - sorry

Anyways, who can blame you for voting with your feet?

I heard about this a couple of weeks ago but did not post it because it's a little far fetched.   I've been told the same story in two Samuel Smith's pub that are 70 miles apart, so maybe there is some truth in it.

Humphrey walked into a pub and while talking to the manager in the bar he turned round and pointed at 3 groups of drinkers telling the manager not to serve them and to ban then from the pub.  The manager told Humphrey that the groups where his regulars, it made no difference and the manager had to ban them.

I'll leave it up to you whether  too believe it or not.

I wonder if the bikers boycott will last longer then the Gay's boycott about the John Snow or the Catholic's boycott about the Winsor Castle.   :()
