A Customers Viewpoint / Re: SWEARING

While I agree with this in principle, I do drink sometimes in 'The Cock' up by Oxford Street. Will it be ok for me to say to my mate on the phone we are in the Cock? Or come over the Cock we're loving it?

I don't think the word "cock" is a swear word unless i'm mistaken.

The thing about this is this, if you have to swear, keep it down. It's common sense and this isn't like it's anything new! It's called "RESPECT" for others. The only thing new about it is that there has been a notice published and put up. If some of the bar staff did there job right there would be no need for this. No body gets away with swearing in ours when the manager or manageress is on. Nor do they serve drunks.

Alreet, hows this coming along? Anyone know if it's going to have OBB on cask when it opens? Would be good to be able to get cask in Soho!

I understand why people may swear.   What I don't personally want to hear is constant profanity in the pub.  Surely our English lessons gave us enough of a grip of the language not to use such language all the time.  I had to remind my hubby of his p's and q's last week as the Taddy Lager loosened his lips.  Simple warning did the trick so why can't we all do it to our friends and loved ones!  Why not have a swear box with the money going to local charities.  Immediate barring from the pub is too harsh.

Might pop in to my local one at dinner time and ask for a [email protected] cold pint of OBB. :BL

Humphrey obviously on one again

What I don't understand the company who made the film had permission from  Sam's, so they had the copyright. This company closed down in the 80's So how does SSOBB have the copyright?

If the film was commissioned by Sams it may well be that they bought the rights as part of the package. Not so usual with stills photography but common practice with filmmaking.
Yes I should have known this, as a semi pro stills photographer. I bet Humph thinks with all the new Micro Breweries coming on the seen, that they might steel his show

We always enjoy our visits here, if it is good enough for the Archbishop of York it is good enough for my husband and I.

General Discussion / The Ebor

We have just come back from a bank holiday at Bishopthorpe so we managed to get three visits to the Ebor. What a great pub it is and what a good atmosphere everyone friendly and chatty even though it was packed out. Sad to say Gordon the manager is resting after a bout of bad health. so get well soon Gordon. We must say this pub is one to put on your list of pubs to visit.
