Well, they say no new is good news...
The process to complete the sale of The Hare and Hounds is taking longer than the new owners Shane & Clare or Hayley & myself ever envisaged.
Please rest assured that everyone is doing what they can to help the solicitors to their stuff and get all the I's dotted and T's crossed.
As soon as we have anymore information we will post it immediately.
Originally everything was meant to have been sorted out and Shane & Clare would have been opening up tomorrow morning... It's now looking like it will be Thursday night or Friday morning when you'll get the chance to come and meet the new landlords and judge for yourself if Shane's jokes are any better than Mark's...
DON'T MENTION THE "S" WORD
At the time of writing, the big orange glowing thing in the sky has been a bit patchy... no sooner do we think that the s__ is going to come out that it becomes overcast once more or too windy to make it worth sitting out on the grass... But fingers crossed...
If the thing that shan't be mentioned manages to come out and STAY OUT, then doubtless everyone will want to make the most of it, not least us. Simply order at the bar as usual, then take your drinks out with you, if you've ordered food, we'll give you a table number and bring the food out to you as soon as it's ready.
A polite reminder to people that whilst we're dog friendly throughout the pub - we regret that we DO NOT allow dogs out on the grass. We'd love to think that every dog owner would be responsible enough to always scoop the poop, but alas there will always be one owner who spoils things for everyone else. As we get kids running around barefoot in the summer, I'm sure you will appreciate that it makes it very embarrassing for us to have to apologise to their parents when their little angel has just trodden in something less than angelic!!
