My local pub which has had 2 refursbs in 12 months had gone from a 2 managed pub to 1. There are now 5 fires to be lit , all in tiny rooms. The manager took over the pub 8 weeks ago with a view to providing food. Everything was on track, until last night when Mr Smith turned up. He has now decided he wants the pub to be 2 managed with couples going in, enjoying a cosy night by the fire. Is this man real? We are all locals, going in to enjoy the company of our friends, banter from the landlord and a good pint. Needless to say, he has sacked the manager.
