    Trouble at Okells

    True. It was a new barrel that the barman had just put in, but it could be an old new barrel or a new new barrel. Didn’t like it though.

    Trouble at Okells

    Had a pint from a new barrel on Friday. Didn't seem the same and I didn't enjoy it. Switched back to Doombar after that pint.

(2) In sub-paragraph (1) “private motor car” means a motor vehicle within the meaning of the Road Traffic Act 1985, other than — (a) a public passenger vehicle (within the meaning of the RoadTransport Act 2001);59 (b) a goods vehicle within the meaning of the said Act of 1985, and includes any vehicle drawn, by such a vehicle. (3) The Authority shall, before a prohibition or restriction under this paragraph comes into force, give public notice in 2 or more newspapers published and circulating within the Island of the date when it will come into force. (4) Any person who contravenes a prohibition or restriction in force under this paragraph shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding £1,000.
