Well, here we are again… Stuck between a rock and a hard place. It is very difficult these days, as hospitality business owners, not to sound like whiny toddlers complaining that things aren’t fair. But, they are not. No matter how it gets dressed up and justified by being for “the greater good”, what has […]
Not So Much Like Rain On Your Wedding Day…
In a glorious riposte to Alanis Morrissette and her oft ridiculed idea of irony, on the day designated as “Beer Day Britain” when they are meant to be celebrating the drink that underpins our nation, the pub and brewing trade are analysing and getting used to the news that there will be a likely four week delay to the long hoped for and relied upon “freedom day” of restriction easing.
