Surviving sums them up, prospering definitely not!

How can serving a pint and a Hamburger be ''Hit n Miss ''???

You're seeing problems where there aren't any. Does the manager really matter? Are you going to stop going to a Pub because the manager is surly, because the Hamburgers are not a good as the Queens? You wouldn't be there in the first place if those were your parameters for a Pub to patrionise?

Who really used the LA that they can say it's closure is really a '' Shame ''?

Are you taking the piss? are you trying to tell me you've never received bad service from any pub/restaurant? I have and that is how I decide where to go for family lunch/dinner. LA and Cat with no Tail were both our regulars for about 10 years and they both changed around the same time.

Finlo.......

There's not really a difference is there? For a company, it is the bottom line and their shareholders that matter.

These companies provide us with our High Street and on line services, without them, what would we have?

Decline, at least partly self-constructed.

Unfortunately, having a massive knock on to that leisure side of local society.To the detriment of those who still like a pint in a pub.

But now trying to engineer obstacles to those who might see opportunity in their failing.

If he were a... as you say... then he would not have served you that often, so you get served by the staff, were they 'useless drunks''? This ca be true in any pub, it5 is the staff that you will most likely interact with.

You are just trying, in retrospect,  to find reasons for the closure and viability of a business that you are not in a position to judge.

I think that perhaps it’s already last orders in your house.

How many of us have regularly patronised the LA in the last 10 years?

None. You are correct.

That’s not true several posters have said above that they have and I’ve also spent a fair bit of time in there as well over the years. I do find it difficult to follow these threads where 95% of posters seem to say one thing, and 5% of posters seem to say the exact opposite ten times more frequently.

A busy night in the LA of late would have been 6 people.

That does not fill the till

Dobson was an obnoxious drunk. It didn’t help turnover.
