General Discussion / Cask or keg OBB - who decides?
« Last post by HMFC1874 on Today at 07:07 AM »
Hello everyone, it's my first post, so please be gentle.
I've noticed over the years that some pubs have switched between selling the cask and keg versions of OBB. Some I think have flipped between them multiple times.
I was wondering, is the decision on which version to sell down to a pub's manager, or is it dictated by the brewery? Does anyone know the answer to this?
Sorry if this info is already on here, but I couldn't find it.

Sky sports  jukebox and pool room. Sounds like my idea of a pub from hell. My opinion of Humphrey has just gone up. My local has all the mentioned in the bar and it's full of young ones shouting over the jukebox and football commentary and arguing over the pool table. The lounge has three large televisions and an entire wall screen all with sport on and they expect families to dine there. Give me SS pubs any tine good beer and chat at a acceptable price. We maybe grumpy old ditherers but there is more of us than the young ones and we have the spare cash.


Agreed

I'll second that emotion!

I agree with what you are saying about Sky Sports, jukebox and pool room in SS pubs but my local SS pub still has a pool room and it's the least favourite room out of the 3 but when it had Sky sports it was mostly Rugby (League and Union) he had on as he didn't like Football which is the same with me.

Just read in the local paper that SS have put in plans to restore this village pub to its 17th century origins.  Letís hope the workers donít disturb the ghost whilst they are working there!  It seems the council etc are happy with the plans so there shouldnít be a big battle at the planning stage.  This pub has great views of the Howardian Hills.

We are pretty lucky in this country to have SS pubs but the business could do so much better and expand as I would love to see them in Newcastle and Northumberland.
Looking back 20 years ago or so SS pubs was so much better as apart from cheap Beer the bottles of beer and bottles of wine were well priced and you had proper home cooked food alongside a sky sports and juke box in the pool room.

I'm old enough to remember there being a Jukebox in The Open Hearth in Scunthorpe, Friday dinner time pool and booze session with a few tunes on the jukebox

SS pubs haven't been the same since they removed at least the jukeboxes never watched sport on TV in a pub really...

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.

Itís ok as long as you arenít having a family party where £100ís could be involved!  As Iím married to a man who often forgets his wallet (remembers at the end of our street) I always have cash to support myself!

Yes true for large groups it is going to be a problem,but I do know that two SS pubs near me that do a lot of food are keeping their machines. As they have quite a lot of large groups,or hotel guests there.
