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

You should really look at the trip advisor reviews, that place does get some stick!

Not been on the forum for awhile, but felt motivated by finding out the Petre Arms is shut and up for grabs requiring a 1500 bond. Does anyone know whats happened any rumours.

it looks as if the pubs in York are changing the licence holder. i've been told that David Courtney is being replaced as Premise Licence Holder and the new licence holder is Samuel Smiths Brewery. Is this happening in other areas I wonder. i think young Sam is making his mark if true

Pub companies and breweries usually always have their premises licences in the name of the company rather than an individual so I would say that it's more likely that the company lawyers have pointed out the need for change, and  perhaps Mr Courtney has left, forcing the change?

Just looked online and he's still on the premises licence for the Prince of Wales, North Shields, and no application to change so who knows?

I do agree, I know Thomas Jeffrey padget is on some licenses, as well.Been a former QS,now Maintenance Manager at SS. David Courtney was also a QS,not seen his name on any licenses,when I have looked. Shall keep my eyes open  ?S? ?S?

A Customers Viewpoint / Re: Crisps again - recent

I can still remember the days of KP nuts behind the bar (Salt and vinegar went well with a pint of OBB)

Why does Humphrey have to try and do everything on the cheap... and sometimes nasty?

I do remember the Brannigans beef & mustard flavor crisps,they were lovely.

Recently purchased a bag of beefy crisps whilst having a pint of cask OBB at the Prince of Wales in North Shields - needless to say the beer was as ever quality tasting but the crisps flavourless. Tried the dry roasted nuts and they were not up to the usual standard.

Is the factory cutting back in quality ingredients  --  I wonder
