Thanks to all for your replies. What sort of pub would you like to see? The plan was for it to be 'traditional'. Real ales soon to come including Pedigree and Camerons Strongarm, any particular ciders? Chips will definitely be on the menu along with the usual traditional pub food (and possibly Thai food too?).
For my part, I'd be very happy with good traditional pub food.
It also needs to be much cosier, as Julie said above. It is a bit stark at the moment. And could we have some sofas! About 2 years ago, when they had a couple of comfy sofas at the front, the place always seemed to be busy.
I'd echo Mr Bridger's sentiments about the sort of pub food that's missing around here IMHO. Some good drinking snacks, with a decent quotient of healthy/vegetarian options would be unique enough to draw some custom, I'd have thought. As well as giving you an excuse to stay in the pub (because it's well known that vegetables neutralise cider).
And whilst we're on the cider point, I'd just say that one of the most available ways of getting draught cider is in a 15l manucube. We'd finish that in an evening if we had a social at Simon's. If someone could crack getting a regular supply of different ciders and perries to willing pubs, there could be something that would really work. A different, fresh, draught cider or perry every week or fortnight would be fantastic. I'll make a call or two about that.
