Easy mistake to make, with the Underground running overground in places and the Overground running underground in places and you can use both with the same ticket.   Some times after a few pints I don't know if I'm coming or going. :D

Yes, it is the overground, I use the tube so much when I visit I think of it as all the same.

Hi TR6KID,    I don't think the underground goes to Anerley but the Overground does. I will stand corrected if I'm wrong.   Re Taddy bridge some on here didn't believe all the anti Smith's stuff in the press and said so on here.

And interestingly, O.B. is 2.70 a pint, cheapest Sam's beer in the metropolis. Only drawback being the cost of getting there from central London! At least it's close to the tube.

And she was very supportive of H, saying he is often misunderstood and misrepresented, lied about, and that a lot of untruths put about re the Tadcaster Bridge.

General Discussion / 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.
Ended up having their roast, Gordon Bennet what a mountain of food, fantastic value for 7.95. 4 thick ( an I mean thick ) slices of beef, 2 Yorkshires, mash, 2 roast taters, carrots, beans, sliced beans. Could not eat it all. So much for standard menu.
Dab in soon as the managers are on the move on 2nd May to another London pub - they could not           ( would not ) say which. Someone from further out taking over The Anerley.
According to her, Anerley was acquired in 1978, and the first of the Sam's London pubs.
Funnily enough, the Manager of The White Hart in Mansfield told me when they first re-opened it, that Humph had promised him the first London pub to become vacant. Wonder if he'll complain to H as he has been lied to.

A standard sign has obviously been sent to all pubs by fax / whatever, so no variation can occur. One had already been defaced with 3 letters locally, I thought what's that, someone's initials apparently. ( who swears a lot ).

Signs went up in my two locals, memo received Saturday. As to ban, don't think that is the case. Both managers said, when I enquired what was to be the result of swearing, that you will not be served again, as per Humph's instructions. You will be allowed to finish your drink? Yes.  So will you be asked to leave? No. Which shows the off the cuff nature of the memo, not thought through. So I asked, if I come in again next day do I get served? Yes, as long as you don't swear again.
So everyone was having a laugh and having extended conversations, predominantly using the word 'up' as a substitute, or more correct terminology such as fornication. Where they would not have sworn in the first place actually.
I doubt this will have any effect whatsoever unless himself is on the premises.
Though I do agree the language is a bit too much on occasion, and certainly inappropriate at times. It can be ok to swear as long as it gets reined in when ladies, kids or vicars present.
No doubt there has been an incident or Humph has witnessed something which has set him off.
Which may come out on this forum.

GREAT NEWS.

I have no objection to the odd swear word, but when it is loud and continual it is a disgrace, and landlords/bar staff should do something about it.

My girlfriend refuses to come with me to my local because of certain individuals who wont stop swearing loudly.

But am I the only one who thinks it wont make any difference at all?
