Like that's gonna work. Full for 5-6 hours once a fortnight the other 13 days you wouldn't be able to move for tumbleweed.

Well not if it's a decent pub that offers good beer and food.

'Hysteria' emoji is a overreaction too, nothing on here is that funny babi duck.

What’s happening with the Early doors these days? That would be decent if it were to open as a pub again


I noticed a few weeks ago there was a For Sale sign on the Vhojon which presumably has now closed.

I walked past there today on my way to Field Mill and there is some work going on inside.

No idea what it is going to be.


Hopefully a TGI Fridays. Okay another corporate chain but the food is bostin.

Mate, their meat is of a poorer quality than even that of Cheesecake Factory. And that takes some doing.

Why they drench it all in slop.

Yeah but its the slop that makes it.

Plus until next March they still can't sell chorinated chicken or formaldahyde beef in the UK.

Cheesecake Factory has been raspberry ever since Penny and Bernadette got proper jobs.

Your KFC is SO much better back home than it is over here!

Last time home i was in Tesco's cafe & asked for a coke. Flat as a witches tit. Waitress said she'll go change gas canister. Came back with another one. It was then i realized i'd forgotten how warm & treacly pop is back home.

Didn't dare ask for ice cubes. Was with me mum & didn't want to humiliate her!

The Wheatsheaf, Ramme, Railway, Dial, Market, New Inn etc are awful dives where none of them have seen any upgrading since the early 90's. Because of this I no longer enter the town centre before or after games. Its so unappealing.

Its shocking in all honesty.

The loss of the Vic, Black Swan, Portland, Eight Bells, White Hart, Town Mill, Village, Charters, Crown and Anchor over the past twenty years shows a lack of need for pubs in todays era, sadly.

Recently a friend of mine whom worked for the Brewery and its subsequent owners cited to me that in the early 2000's the Swan sold as many as 56,000 drinks over the weekend from 3pm Friday afternoon until 10.30 Sunday night, this once included over 24,000 bottles of lager.
Today they sell less than 8,000 drinks a WEEK including coffee and teas. What the fluff has happened.

I agree Mr Radford should buy Early Doors, but we know it would become a designated away fans pub, because Mr Gabbit-ass would commandeer it for his purposes.
Then again it could mean that our club benefits from fleecing the away support......hmmmmm, now there a thought


10 years ago you couldnt move in the swan on a Saturday afternoon from 230 to 6pm. It was 2 drinks (pints or bottles) for £3... This has since doubled in price. At the orginal price the state of the pint didn't really matter.
