what adds to the difficulty at nellies (apart from the being 9+ rooms and corridors + 2 beer gardens) is that with the being gas lights and open fires, you always get some drunken muppets (often 1st time visitors) who have to mess around and turn off the gas lights, then wonder why they dont come on again when they turn back on the tap. they usually do this on their way out, so leaving gas spewing out. from a health and safety matter, they should have provision for at least one member of staff to be away from the bar, fully mobile (could collect glasses too, which when busy is relied on volunteers!) to keep an eye on gas, open fires (people just chucking anything on) and other mad activities, hidden from the' tied to the bar' staff.
oh and of course rumour has it, that HS wants them to do food too!?
