I worked in Taddy a couple of times over the past 3 years and this was the pub I always used to go in after work. Vibrant crowd, good laugh, no hassle. I understand someone from Sam's didn't like it, so the landlady, Sandra, got shoved sideways to the Falcon.
The pub got a refurb sometime last year.
I went in last October and the pub, at half seven on a Monday, was empty.
I had to be in Taddy today so I went in to see what it was like. Empty is the best word to describe it.
Around about 1.15 2 girls and a fella came in for something to eat. They were told they sold food until 6, so there was no rush.
They eventually ordered 3 meals. After 10 minutes a twig with blonde hair came over to clear the plates, and, on seeing one of the women had left half her meal, asked if everything was OK. The girl told her that half the food was cold. The twig said she would ask the chef why.
And that was it. No apology, no refund, no nothing. To my amazement they ordered sweets, but only after been told the chef may or may not still be working. If he was supposed to be working until 6, where was he?
They finish there sweets and left immediately, and they were not pleased.
I went to the loo,and realised, that at twenty past two, there were only about 3 people in the pub.
I assume the Angel is the flagship pub in Taddy for the beer and food.
God help us.
