    So rammed when we visited - I just opened the door and said "Forget it!". Shame it's closing though.

    It appears that the pub itself will be retained in the redevelopment, however the existing tenants will not be staying and, as hinted in the Tweet, they intend to recreate the formula elsewhere.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    I can't claim any pubs or beer connection, but this BBC News story definitely falls under the heading of 'Random news of the day': Missing goat Belle found at Sale tram stop.

    From same beeb site, here's a pub related one

    A video showed frightened customers running away as Dicken walked round the busy pub waving the petrol-powered saw.

    Circular saws in pubs? That must really have got Sale's goat, had it not already been trying to catch a tram - perhaps it was looking for a ram?
