Fu.ck me Any pub that isn't flying after having half a million spent on it should be leading to sackings at pubco HQ

Oh youd be amazed at how the pubcos come up with these figures.

When you leave a tenancy you often have to return the pub to the condition they claim it was in when you took it. I once had a company trying to charge me nearly 25 grand to repaint the pub externally [ it was actually a very large pub but just yard after yard of painted plaster ]

I ended up buying 20 tins of Sandtex hired a scaffolding tower and got 3 of the regulars to slap it on and then hired a decorator for the weekend to do the glossing and tidying up total cost not much more than 1500 quid.

And the icing on the cake was the old turn a quote into an invoice trick and hey presto job done.

Has anyone been in the Beehive recently? I mean not on a match day.

Went in a couple of weeks back on a Thursday night and it was almost deserted.

Their once thriving pub quiz would have had 12 or more teams amd it was a livelt night. Last week there were 6 teams and it was all over by 10pm.

For the amount of money they threw at it and the hike in drink prices it must be a worrying sign.

I read something about they’d been supplied with the wrong type of tiles and had started fitting them, only for somebody to notice and then remove them?

They’re also building an extension for lodging rooms too.

They have a Facebook page. Seems there were also some issues with having to replace the windows to a certain design or something similar.

I shudder to think how much this is going to wind up costing - and then wonder if there's anything like the local demand to make it viable. I used to live on Dalston Road and, in the absence of anything else, this would almost constitute a local but TBH I'm not sure I could be bothered.

The new Accommodation Block Will apparently add 15 beds to the 5 already above the Pub.

Decent footfall on these will keep the place ticking over, especially if they all eat and have a couple beers like most folk do when they stay in this type of place...

That was part of the reason the last people who had reopened it as a pub gave up, the council kicked up over them putting upvc windows in a listed building, despite the fact they'd restored it from a crumbling shell. They couldn't afford to replace them and they quit and it then turned back into a crumbling shell under tesco's careful watch and someone else is now trying their best, I wonder if history is going to repeat itself? Though this lot seemed to have a few more quid behind them.

If anyone ever took over that spot on the viaduct the council would probably fine them a million quid for painting the windowsills the wrong colour
