3 months probably not enough to get it clean.

O'Donnell's I would say longer then.

I see it isn't on the list. http://pubsandbars.im/opening-dates/

Yeh. That's a shithole too.

Indeed. Some very, very unsavoury characters last I was in there, just after new year. The faux 'Ye olde pub' look doesn't work.

They were cleaning it today. So probably aiming for next summer.

Looking at the list of pubs it seems that some gave reduced opening hours. Some not opening Monday or Tuesday, and some not opening until mid or late afternoon.

That's more like it :). Rather than being welcomed straight back with a mooted 40p per pint hike.

Was talking with an ex Manx publican who now now runs a smart pub just outside Bolton. Their supplier has briefed them that many of the products they’ll be supplied as pubs open, think bottles and kegs,  will have over stuck best by labels. So a keg in stock in the warehouse from February or early March with a best by of 30 April will have a best before 31/7 stuck on.

How do they stand legally in respect of that John? Surely "best before" dates are applied for a reason, would it be a legal requirement?

Would a supermarket be allowed to "re-date" its perishable and chilled goods, rather than marking them down in price to encourage sale before date expiry?

I raised an eyebrow, then I got to thinking. Keg beer, pasteurised, sterile, unopened, should be good for a long time. Look at dates on cans and compare. Many ciders now have a 12 month best before.

The best before date, sometimes shown as BBE (best before end), is about quality and not safety. The food will be safe to eat after this date but may not be at its best. Its flavour and texture might not be as good. Best before dates appear on a wide range of foods including:

frozen foods

dried foods

tinned foods

The best before date will only be accurate if the food is stored according to the instructions on the packaging.

Any price increases?

Count on it. Quality will be shite too.

A couple of months max for bitter and 4 months max for lager. After that, use your stock of toilet rolls quicker than expected. :ph34r:

Surely if it was that simple, the brewery would have been all over that little trick
