Surely the demand is there. I demand it! Many weekends I've wanted to pop in for a pint or a whisky or even a meal ... Sunday lunch would be lovely. With so many developments on Long Lane nearing completion, and others just beginning, surely it's time for you to try opening at weekends.

I thank you.

I'll second that - although it always seems to be pretty quite even during the week, it obviously needs a bit more publicity. Maybe Natalie should pay a visit!

I think opening at the weekends would help it during the week. How can a pub build a regular clintele if it's not even open on a Saturday night?! People walk past it, see that it's closed, and never think about coming back.

I agree! I used to go to the Woolpack (now Scotia) but got fed up with it so now we go to the Rose, which is a rather taxing 10 minute walk. I think if they did Sunday lunch they would see more people coming in - neither of the above two pubs do it.

Mind you I did go to the Tanner last year with some friends and apart from the staff we were the only people in there.

What's the Rose like these days? I went in there a couple of years ago and it was very scary, reminicent of the Slaughtered Lamb(?) in An American Werewolf - has it changed? Also, someone mentioned the Ship, I think, being run by the same people as Simon and the Leathermarket - where is it?

The Rose is OK, especially in winter as they have the sofa and fire. But I agree when I first moved here I used to walk past it and it was always full of old men who looked half dead. It still is on saturday lunch times as there is a betting shop opposite.But generally the customers seem to be getting younger and more varied. Not such a summer pub though...

As to the Ship - maybe the all-knowing James can recall which posting someone mentioned it in.

Where's the Rose?

Any other decent pubs around?

just for a pint try The Beehive, Bartholomew Street, avoid every other Friday as they have karaoke, and I get up to sing......

The Rose is on Weston St, near Champor Champor.
