A Customers Viewpoint / Re: Carol Brown retires
« Last post by OldBreweryDrinker on May 11 - 2017 »
Just read today that Carol is retiring from the Colpitts back home in Durham. Although I'm exiled now and haven't been back for a few years, the Colpitts is a cracking pub and always a great pint.

Glad some of the old managers are retiring rather than getting fed up and leave or end up been fired.  C==CC C==CC

During a recent visit to the city of culture 2017 we visited the Olde Blue Belle Inn and the Rugby Tavern.  Both were tidy but we had a preference for how well the lager was kept in the Olde Blue Belle Inn.  Lots of local pictures with this hidden gem!  Both pubs were busy.

I do intend to visit Hull this year, as I have not been for a few years now. Interesting to see what the Blue Belle Inn & Rugby Tavern are like after a few years away. Yes both pubs are normally busy

I have been in several SS pubs since the ban, and the language seems to have got worse since the notices have been displayed in the pubs. Some managers haven't even bothered to put the signs up,or ignoring it,even worse for the managers.

I have heard this week that the managers at the Brown Bear in Sheffield have been fired,anybody else heard the rumour too? Also said the pub was shut.

Colpits was also mentioned in a article in the Sun recently.

The Moorhouse,Duncan & Elliott in Leeds are sometimes bad for language.

The interview is available on the pod cast.  Just hope the manager doesn't get sacked for not following the rules on the memo!  Must be a mine field agreeing with one policy but at the same time breaking another one.  All great free advertising for Sams.

This had a fairly short mention on Radio 4's You and Yours earlier today.  As expected Sam's themselves said nothing but there was a quick interview with a landlady. I don't know whether the programme is available via iplayer (podcast ?).

It's just as bad in the Brigadier Gerard in York.

The 18 year old daughter of the landlord can be heard swearing on several occasions, that is when you can interrupt her long enough to stop playing on her phone to get served.

One fella was stood at the bar,  constantly using the F word very loudly, and no-one said anything to him.

General Discussion / Louth

Has Sams ever had a pub in Louth, I go there quite alot and I think it would do a roaring trade as the sort of people that visit are oldish and a nice quiet pub with no music would suit them down to the ground. Come on Humph if you are reading this have a look and see if their is some vacant land or maybe a place that has closed and could be opened as a Sam Smiths public house with maybe some decent meals as well.
