    Harvey's (Sussex) is completely ubiquitous in my part of the world (apart from the Shepherd Neame and Greene King tied houses), and over many decades I can't recall ever having a bad pint of it any pub that keeps a good cellar.

    My understanding is that the brewery won't sell to any freehouse where problems are reported because there are so many others beyond the East Sussex / West Kent core area looking to stock it.
    Lack of flavour between one barrel and the next cant be the pubs fault.

    Well, all I can say is that it's news to me (having been a Harvey's regular for decades).

    Probably doesn't help that the pub's URL links to a locksmiths.

    which makes you wonder if it suddenly became an issue for those who like the idea of a pub but never use it when it was threatened with closure.

    The Bell at Yarpole was bought as a community pub, reopened, but seems to have closed again.

    Sometimes the way these things go, but of course the way a pub is being run may put off the locals.

    This pub was cursed by bad management taking it from popular local to disaster zone and now back to a half decent pub.

    The "celebrity chef" taking over an established village local and trashing it is all too familiar. It's also a familiar story when a PubCo basket case has been rescued by a community buyout or dedicated new owners. Some people seem to have a massive blind spot about the importance of who runs a pub and how a pub is run, a pub is not a shop that sells beer. There are people who shouldn't get within a million miles of running a pub.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    This is very true, of course when a pub is owned by a Pubco it can be completely hit or miss as to the quality of the tenant or manager.
