    I hope No7 hasn't closed permanently. It's a brilliant pub.

    Seriously guys ! The Floodgate is open, I’m in it drinking now - this silly rumour and speculation is enough to run a small business into the ground, catch yourselves on and stop enjoying speculating on a small business demise it’s pathetic !

    The previous messages are about No7 being closed not the Floodgate closing aren't they?

    I didn't get any impression of enjoyment by those posting the messages more lamenting it's potential closure.

    I suspect that the No 7 posts were here because the Forum's search function makes that hard to search for, unless you realise that 'market' is also there in the relevant thread title for it, and, knowing the businesses to be associated, this seemed like the next best place....

    There are many popular beat combos that are not performing in the French part of France.

    How many, and of what sort, are doing so here?
