Very snobbish of a man who looks like a tramp, more reports below.

Beggars belief that a man who doesn't like publicity seems to be a master of bad publicity. Surely this will result in more lost revenue than his dodgy 5% surplus gain.

The horrible little man just came into the Royal Oak and I very politely asked him why he had barred motorcycles, and after a lot of avoidance tactics, rudeness and arrogance from him, he barred me and my husband. My husband has been drinking there for 30 years, as its the only pub in our village and the horrid little man claims its the villagers that don't like the bikes!! We are part of the village as well as motorcyclists

It's just been on BBC Looknorth at 8-25am,    I'm guessing it will be also on the Lunchtime and Teatime news.

In this day and age of nearly 5 pints I wonder why more non SS pubs and social/sporting clubs don't sell the likes of Taddy's and Best Bitter etc ? as if I was a struggling pub/club I be stocking the bar with a lot of the SS products.

To be fair, where we live pretty much every club sell Sam Smiths beers. Cullercoats, Tynemouth, all of the Shields clubs. The rep is very active.
Good, I wish it were the same where we are! I think Taddy may be in one club but not sure.

As above,, after a good and likely expensive, refurb, cask sales have disappointed and it has been removed yet again. Shame. The place does seem quiet and most other patrons seem to drink lager etc. Therefor, not surprising. A pity as I missed it when removed a few years ago and was delighted to see it reappear.
 Good while it lasted, tho'. :S*

Use it or loose it!

 A lovely pub, and my local.

Not had a manager for around 3 months, but still seems to run OK.

We had a problem last week, when Humprey turned up and heard people swearing in the beer garden. He subsequently closed the pub at 6pm and it didn't open for 3 days.

I meant lot of pubs and bars have lagers like Moretti for 4.70 and real ale can be 3.20-3.60 in my area.

I couldn't agree more with you. Perhaps there is less profit in Sam's drought products.

The day I spend 5.00 on a pint is the day I start to drink at home. I don't even think it's worth 2.00 no mater what or who's brew it is! Beer makes petrol look cheap and we all moan about that don't we?
