Nice to hear. It has had the merry go round of managers of late so lets hope these are successful.

It's a pub I want to visit but am never that way....

The pub is getting dirty. Slug trails all over the carpet, window bottoms are black, some flower things stuck to the window which are now all black, tables outside never get cleaned. They cough, sneeze, poke their ears, blow their nose and never once think to wash their hands. Customers have actually  told them to get their hands washed after sneezing into them. You see customers looking at each other and you can tell they are saying things about the pair of hillbillies behind the bar. And if you have a complaint, best keep it to yourself as they are never wrong!

Nothing doing as yet. I wish he would pull his finger out and get something done. It would have been packed out these last few days with the sun. :GIVEB: :WF

According to SS online facebook page the Colliers Arm's has had  makeover,and was wondering if members knew if the pub has reopened yet? Looks like a modern feel that many other SS now have.
