Have noticed that the bird in hand opened at 2 on wednesday but was closed by 9pm.

Yeah, saw it open at lunchtime. Thought they'd got a new landlord in, but they'd be mad to close by 9?
So... It isn't going to be a doctor's surgery just yet then? Fusking rumours.
Insanity would be opening at all
Bring back Ron! Or his soup strainer at least......
I second the motion to bring back Ron.
And Audrey, who used to preside magnificently over the bar of the Eagle in full evening dress.
And Eddie who ran the Waggon & Horses so brilliantly (although I still haven't forgotten his 'vastly amusing joke' of hiding some chicken pieces at the bottom of the miserable broccoli bake which constituted the vegetarian option on the Christmas menu)
Stafford pubs were blessed with so many characters back in the day...although one of the characters at the Bear & Pheasant used to scare me a bit, to be honest.
Yes Audrey was very 'spangly' ......
Oh please do tell. I used to go in a lot when John (Mr Bean) kept it.
Article on the front of today's E&S, saying that it's open again..
Who are the new suckers?
Sorry, I mean who now has the tennancy in a busy successful wet and dry popular town centre pub?
They look so happy in the photo - it's enough to break your heart.
I do hope all naysayers are wrong...
At least Chambers is currently closed - a bit less competition?
Give it til Easter?
Free pool tables between 7 - 9 on a Wednesday - good idea, but Tuesday might be better? What is the current Stafford Student chronology? Wednesdays used to be Reynolds Bar about a million years ago did it not?
Students might be the best market to go for - if only they had any money for such frivolous activities - still, in for a penny, in for a (n average debt of 53,000) pound(s).
The toilets are flooded again at the UB ( Tipping Street )
Why is it called Tipping Street?
And how much do you leave?
Two schools of thought;
1) Back in Ye Olde Rotten Borough days, 'twas where the burgesses received their 'tip' for voting correctly
2) Being the site of the pottery industry, 'twas blessed with sites in which to 'tip' waste along with the wasters
Smart money is on the former - was also the site of the horse market, horse-trading is hardly new.
The things you miss out on for not being 147 years old eh..
It is still 'student night' on Tuesdays, or thats what my 'students' - kids say!
John Marwood? pipe down a little eh.
Back to thread, very best of luck to the new publicans.
But it will take more than luck eh?
