a chap called Mark is doing relief at the moment, he's been there before, nice chap!
yes, sadly, management couple have left. they loved the place, and found it difficult to make the decision. but as usual, not enough staff hours, and so doing so much themselves, they were not getting a good wage. i think it had eventually started to make the manageress ill, and so her hubby reluctantly suggested for her health, they moved on.
they were a lovely, hard working couple, and as always happens at nellies, despite all enthusiasm, the lack of staff hours gets 'em in the end. i dont think humph has much of a clue (probably not if he's never run a busy pub). nellies has lots of rooms, and an upstairs, and needs to be monitored from under aged getting in, which when busy, staff just cant do, so sometimes theres a chap who does it voluntarily, and another volunteer glass collector
i think all the regulars are fed up of a constant changing management. plus its now becoming a joke with all of the other pub managers in the town
