A scrawled message in chalk on the outside blackboard says "under new management". Whether this was left by the out going manager as a farewell, or by the incoming manager as an invitation I could not tell and I doubt if it matters much anyway as it's the third landlord in 12 months.

To all, especially cellarbuoy...though I havent been to this pub, I am involved in writing business plans for people who want to run pubs such as The ale House......whatever their motivations, my clients apply in good faith, looking primarily to run successful businesses, often looking to turn round the fortunes of neglected sites - like The Ale House. Your dislike for the pub is valid, if your experiences in the past have been bad, but the negativity shown to new tenants, without giving them any sort of chance is extraordinary. Without new tenants, more and more pubs will close and then where will be? You will certainly have less reviews to post.......

This place has opened up again, I guess on some kind of short term basis.
Cant imagine it will be for very long

Well Eddie
If you want to avoid contact with people like me, i.e. discerning pub goers who appreciate good service, great beer and fine food, (or idiots as you would call us) all you have to do is carry on as before, running crappy pubs serving sour beer and revolting food.
I do have a question which I would like answered if you are prepared to do so, which I doubt. What is the name of your latest venture? I think it important that you let us know so we can avoid inadvertently entering the place.

CELLARBOUY , you have clearly had a bad experience in the pub in the past, you have no guts and just write rubbish behind a troll name, get a life !!

We have not gone bust, We new have a new, better,business opportunity which keeps us out of contact with idiots like you.if you have any questions or indeed something to say make contact with me to discuss further, although. Out doubt you will.

I will admit however, The Ale house is a challenge for anyone due to its past reputation and will take someone strong and fully committed to turn it around. Now then who is next for the venom of Tom Thumb and his cell mate !!
