NEW SCHTUMMCAST. MORE VIBES AVAILABLE HERE >>>>>> http://soundcloud.com/schtumm/schtum...0-neal-schtumm
If you want to survive as a pub nowadays you have to be more than just a pub. The Bevy runs everything from seniors lunch club, disability groups, running club, choir, knitting, cooking classes for kids etc - but its still a lively community owned boozer with traditional stuff like darts and quiz nights
I've heard the Hikers needs loads of cash spent on it for refurbishment and will be a pub and Indian restaurant - the owner runs the local corner shop so not sure he wants it to become a Sainsbury!
I hope they re-open - everywhere needs a place where people can meet their neighbours.
Planning application submitted to add a microbrewery (and shop)....interesting!
Have you seen the Muppet Show........
