If you can make enough money doing it your way Nick then great its just my visits to you are limited due to other party members saying they don't like real ale. A keg of John Smiths or Fosters will last over 4 weeks so it wouldn't be wasted. I will wager with you that a keg of Fosters would be gone in under a week I will even supply it if you like. I wonder if the real reason is that the opposite is true and you would sell too much of it which would take away sales from the 1 week life of real ales (provided your not blanket covering) and its that that would be wasted. As I always say though if you want to dictate how a pub runs then buy a pub ! You have two somethings right
Its not the destination its the journey that matters
Good of Pubman to give such a detailed response. Once again, The Lion at Thurne will be a good pub to visit. It is a shame the Thurne Mouth and Boundary Farm moorings have gone (quite literally now!) as it was always a nice and easy walk to Thurne from there. Maybe those pontoons will eventually materialise.....................
as mentioned moorings are at a premium but we should ahve our works done shortly to open our side of the dyke and the farmer will keep the other side open for holiday boats also so room for around 30 boats between the two sides.
this forum has shown what i constantly say, we are not for everyone but in this busy broads market place there is room for all business types. my focus has always been on a constant year around trade and to do that I need to not pander to holiday makers only and aim at a wider audience. i was always taught quality and consistency will always bring in custom long term.
stocking a john smiths or carling would never detract from ale sales as those drinkers are completely different. If you are able to try what we sell please do, but dont jusge until you have tried.
