    Drove past it today at 1:10 and again at 1:50, to and from Tescos. There were no customers to be seen on both occasions (or staff to be fair).

    What are the odds on this closing in the not too distant future, and reopening as sumat else before the schools annual 6 week break?

    Have you noticed on that facebook page, none seem to be from Stafford? or maybe not even the UK?

    No details on the sausages. I'm guessing beef or quorn

    I can't see his book on amazon. I tried searching under "How to get five and a half quid for a pint"

    No joy unfortunately.

    I haven't been in there yet so I can't comment on the food etc but I spoke to the butter knife people through Facebook messenger last week as I had a couple of questions about the menu and delivery. They seemed professional and friendly. It would be awful if this person is actually nothing to do with them and we're presuming they're a reflection of the business?

    Drove past a bit ago and it was packed. Don't think I've seen as many people in their since Julie used to host her strategy meetings.

    Good to see as I don't want a local business to fail.

    Now don’t get nasty, I was having a relaxing morning reading all your witty banter - you well know our beer starts from £3.10 a pint, - plus our new loyalty app gives you the equivalent of 3% back when you collect the points, so I suppose you could say that it’s starts from roughly £3.00 a pint or if you use the welcoming £5.00 voucher, then we’re paying you £2.00 to drink at The Swan. Alternatively you can choose the more expensive stuff, but that’s the whole point of having lots of choice.

    Anyway the book your looking for is the humble pie book of customer service, have a nice day and remember we’re all about supporting new business in Stafford
