    Two of their flagship pubs in Rochdale Alpine Gasthof and Star Inn are still both closed, the Alpine for several months now.

    Rumour is that Humphrey is trying to run the business down for some reason. It's working!

    Yup. Black Sheep gets the thumbs-up from me. Not the most exciting beer, but you can do a hell of a lot worse. I'd certainly take it over London's usual staples such as Pride, Broadside, Bombardier, Mr Chubbs/Good Old Boy, Doom...

    Wouldn't knowingly drink any of em, unless there was no other choice.

    Well someone's lying.


    From personal experience of similar situations I think I know who it might be.

    It must be quite easy to accidentally run a pub into the ground - not everyone realises the work that has to be put in and how hard it can be to provide genuinely excellent customer service. Even easier, therefore, to ruin a pub deliberately.

    I'll never forget what the manager of the Wolverhampton Great Western said to me way back in the 1990s. "you can never take your eye off the ball as if you do the punters will go away and you'll have an empty pub". This is probably even more true today than back then. I've never run a pub and have never really had any desire to do so but I've always had the impression that it's 99% hard graft with 1% fun if you're lucky. If you're working for a large pub co it's probably even worse and if it's JDW you also have to put up with disseminating the idiotic political propaganda from the clown who is the chairman of the company.
