I hope the staff (who were pleasant, friendly and largely ineffectual) have told the management about the impact this had on their business.
I visit the Brit less regularly now, mainly because, although the place has been partially redecorated, the management and staff have changed for the worse, imo. The food was (maybe still is) good and reasonable value, but on several occasions the 'tosser' with the laptop / disco (either on his own or when joined by his shrill friends) imposed his arrogant self and his music on other customers.
I was also in the party on Saturday evening and if we had not been able to sit outside, I doubt we would have stayed as long as we did. I did query with the bar staff why they tolerated the guy because it must have been obvious he was clearing the place for them - one responded with 'well, it's a public place'.
Well, it may be a more regularly empty place soon - the two nearest competitors, Simon the Tanner
and the Old School Yard were both very busy that evening.
Has anyone tried The Marigold
