The

pub trade is a dying one. The cop visit and the accompanying fine may well be the end for that pub.

no wouldn't take it on

I had many years in the trade predominantly restaurant.  I couldn't do the hours ( never going to bed the same day you get up)

I'm done with it now, the red tape and health and safety was a killer

If it was me

I'd say nothing. I used to do bar work as a holiday job. Started when I was 13. You could get a job at any age back then.

Depends on what type of 12 year old....

If it was a 12 year old labrador I would be very impressed and pat it, plus leave it a generous tip.

Also - How did you know it was a 12 year old? - Did you ask for ID? :mellow:

I'd

love to run a pub but these days employment legislation, the hell of breweries being allowed to rape you and the general scum you get in just makes it hell rather than a pleasure.


You have a good Friday and Saturday night with great takings. You'll spend the extra cash you took and more repairing the damage the cretins have done to the bogs. People have no respect these days and it's partially that which has led to the downfall of the local pub, never mind the insane levels of tax which clearly fail to stop binge drinking.

it wasn't the clientele

that was the problem as such, it was the long boring Friday and Saturday nights that were a killer.  Listening to the same old garbage week in week out until stupid o clock after umpteen large brandy's.

 

It was in the country so they didn't believe you when you said it was closing time and I didn't want to be there new best friend to every crony they met

God it was tiresome, eventually after getting a music licence to gee things up a bit for the youngsters we had a ball only to have a couple of complaints to have a visit from the local council.  Apparently according to the council, just because we had a music licence does not mean we are allowed to play live music:shock:

 

I didn't think the local folk and blues society was the new heavy metal.  Eventually I closed and lost a lot but couldn't take the narrow minded mentality of local parish councils. Wouldn't of minded but they never drank in the pub anyway.

 

Our last day and night was a night to remember had a 5 piece live band playing during the day and a great blues band at night nothing to lose and all drinks were a quid.  Made me laugh when my daughter kept using the till, everything a pound, wasn't really hard to add up.

 

At 4.00 in the morning the bar had just dubonnet, sherry and blue bols left and all the youngsters who were still standing drank it with lemonade.  Oldies had long gone and a friend of mine came in with his guitar and played it until the sun rose.

And I never want to do it again, along with food and letting rooms it was purgatory.  People can be so rude
