    Must admit I've always found the invisibility of closed pubs, temporary or not, an irritant, if not a life-threatening one.

    Would a "show closed pubs" button be possible, so those who don't want to see them don't see them, as on the listings?

    It seems incredible that I started this thread on a curious idle whim just two weeks ago.
    I've had emails today saying that the E8 Pembury is only doing collections as of today and that rail services are being halved as of Monday.

    I've been in The Guildford dozens of times having lived in Auld Reekie and have never seen it quiet at any time of day or night.

    I went there mid afternoon on a weekday and while it wasn't quiet it wasn't what I would call busy. I imagine it's a lost cause in August.

    Was out last night things are changing.
    The Royal Oak winding down stocks Amstel done so had to have a Heineken for my last pint, was busy, but they aren't ordering anymore in and wine was BOGOF and they were doing Guinness take outs for £2 in a pint coffee cup with only one bar staff on and teaching the chef to pour pints and use the card machine. Likely to shut soon according to barman that we know.
    The Anchor student night rammed 2 weeks ago about 20 in last night. Just given a student price pint and card only. Landlord says just waiting for Stonegate to say they need to shut.
    The Drapers Arms micropub takeout only according to my mate I was out with when he walked home passed it.

    Default No more temporary closure requests?
