My Wife and I worked for Samsmiths (leaving just over 2 yrs ago being employed for 8 months) we handed our notice in, we had 6 Staff hours and it if anything it was ruining our marriage and our family life. ! Customers were great, but having worked for various companies over the years it was being run like a Circus! We didnt feel like managers, we were glorified Bar staff, who had to all the gardening and cleaning to day in day out. If I had seen this website before I took the pub, I certainly would not of bothered/Or asked lots of questions prior to signing. I do fondly remember the couple who we exchanged with on the day had wished us the best of luck in a rather sarcastic manner. We have for the past 18months been working for another small independant brewary and it is properley managed, and we also do what we are paid to do... manage a pub!
