Seldom do I go into a Pub thats not a Wetherspoons apart from last week when I met a fellow Boater in rural Northamptonshire , Blisworth to be exact . Into the Local Pub , no Food , little welcome , little choice of Beer . Too many of these Local Pubs are badly managed in my opinion and the Brewers not the Tenant take all the Cream
Anything in town centres struggles now, I have lost count of the number of Colchester pubs, hotels and shops which have closed since the town's heyday of the 1970s. Mostly a result of ever increasing parking restrictions and charges, some of the pubs sold off their private car parks, then the brewers / landlords wondered why business fell of a cliff.
