It just goes to show, Britain is supposed to be a world leader, but countries like South Korea are hoping to go cashless by 2020. It's unusual to see anybody paying in cash in bars, restaurants and shops over there.

Yes a manager can refuse to serve anybody.   Also some Sam Smiths pub licences don't allow under 18's in the bars.

Been is here today, OBB spot on but no hand pulled, toilets the cleanest I've seen in any pub in a long time.

Went in here last week and it's just had a refurbishment.   It also as 7 bedrooms to let, the downside is no meals. So it's not a case of B&B more like bed only.    see photos.

See photo.

This pub south of Malton in the Yorkshire Wolds sells Taddy Lager and Pure Brew.  see photo.

Heard that there is 13 new couples being trained up this week.   With managers leaving every week that will not be enough to go around.   I've heard of five sets that are leaving this week alone.

They say the ones closest are the last to know. ;).    Could say more but it will become common knowledge in a week or so.

That is true,sometimes the managers themselves don't know till the stock taker arrives  :S* :S*

Not the case this time. :D, but time will tell.

They say the ones closest are the last to know. ;).    Could say more but it will become common knowledge in a week or so.

Heard a little rumour the Golden Ball may be shutting down for the winter season due to lack of managers.   Don't know how true it is, I just overheard someone talking while I was in the area.

So is that the managers that are getting stocked out on Friday? Or is another Scunthorpe pub up for grabs.

I don't think it's up to me to say on here yet.   I'll be surprise if two of our more active members don't know of at least one each.     I'll be popping into one at the weekend to say my goodbyes to one couple of manager's who leave in the coming weeks.  Will not be posting any more updates for at least six weeks because I will not be around to do so.

This week three more have handed in there notice,  been told that there is now 39 pubs wanting managers.

Long time lurker , first time poster.

I've been looking for this thread for a few weeks now. The rumour seems to be snow balling but no one I have spoken to can confirm it. I have tried to probe a few people within SSOB for more gossip but keep hitting a brick wall. Some repeat the rumour whilst most have just said "We haven't been told anything official." And then changed the subject.

I hear that he has been ordered to wrap up his business and hand the company over by Oct 1st. By whom, I do not know. No confidence due to mental stability has been repeatedly reported as the reason. Add in the fact that Samuel has been seen getting more and more involved with the day to day running of the business, and his replacement as Area Manager for the South so he can work from Tadcaster, and you have the basis for a good rumour.

Of course, all this has been said before and I'll only believe it when it happens. It does make sense - but since when did anything that made sense actually happen in the world of Mr Smith?

I too have tried probing a few SS managers that have worked for Sam's for many years and even they don't know yes or no. Even one that speaks to Linda Stuart often too. I am assuming the new area manager for the south is still at the brewery,had a dodgy start apparently. So Sam has moved back to the brewery and trying to run the company with his uncle.

Yes your last comment is about right for SS  :() :() :() :() :()

"So Sam has moved back to the brewery and trying to run the company with his uncle. "

Didn't what to be the first to post on this, now I'll say what I've heard about it.   Yes Humphrey been told he can no longer be in charge and I believe he out within weeks.   But he told the board that instead he will take a job of an area manager.

Again I don't know how true this is.
