Apart from us, there was only about five other people. Food was advertised to finish at 10pm but probably due to the lack of customers, the chef went home early. At quarter past 10 we we asked to finish drinking up, no last orders, nothing. Well rubbish.
A few minutes before we left, we witnessed group of teenagers come in off the street and head over to the cigarette machine. Not able to get it working, they asked the barman if they could have some change. Strangely he made a sarcastic joke about them being only 15 before happily handing over the change, even counting loudly in song as each coin was fed into the machine. Soon after, he came over and explained to us he charges one fag every time he does this, quickly adding "they are my friends". Wow, that makes it all okay then, carry on Mr Polish guy(!)
Revisit - 09/11/2010
The polish barmen selling kids cigarettes have gone, the place has been refurbished and new owners have moved in.
Being one of the first opening nights there was a pub quiz on to entice the punters. First prize was a £100 bar tab, second prize a bottle of wine. Most amazing thing about it? There were only three teams playing, including us. Yeah we had a good chance but as luck would have it, we came bloody last as usual. We did get a pot of nuts as a consolation prize though.
