Good news from the brewery for a change. Wonder if it'll be family friendly like Hungry Horse etc?

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

It will or should say in your contract of employment.

Samuel Smiths Estate Matters / New SS Pub in Leeds
« Last post by OldBreweryDrinker on Oct 17 - 2017 »
Looks like the brewery is going to build on some land off Coal Road,Leeds, after 20 years. Looks like a massive pub & carpark for 60 cars.

Here is an article in the Evening Post,

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.

A Customers Viewpoint / Re: Crisps again - recent

Well, they are hardly cheap to buy! Which I didn't mind when they were great. Imho, the only ones consistent and good are the Chilli ones, no variation since introduced. The others, espec. Cheese and Onion are utter rubbish, Rammell as my dear departed Mum used to say! Every now and again I relent and try them and they are worse than Golden Wonder and that's saying something ( the only wonder is / was that anyone bought them ). As for the factory, I am certain they are produced in London, as this is the only manufacturer not to reply to my enquiry if they make Sam's crisps. I will do more to establish this as time goes on.

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

At a guess I'd say that around a quarter of the entire estate has no cask.  Out of the four Tyneside pubs, only one has cask.

An interesting view, but I believe a third type, a pub that does great beer and great food.

What has become my new local has a large restaurant area with a cracking chief, they are fully booked near every day and regular have to turn down custom that hope to walk in and get a table without prior booking. Food isn't cheap but is worth it as it really is top end restaurant quality food. Beer is top notch and below price what you would expect, never a bad pint.

On another view, I went to a "Brewdog" establishment a couple of months ago. I fail to understand how it works, totally horrible beer at stupid high prices, I think they confuse the word "Craft" with "Crap".

Obviously, I am a fan of Sam's to be here, but if they produced a fuller beer, did some decent food, then all sorted for them, but will not happen if Humphrey is involved!

The SS empire is so big, that it takes a long time for a stupid decision to have a long lasting company effect.


At the Old Brewery that's about 25 years. Then?
