    It’s not necessarily an insult. Simone de Beauvoir found Jean Paul Sartre very intoxicating.

    Stuck my head in on Friday afternoon after a 26 hour journey back to the Costa del Stafford....All is well it seems. Still plenty of people going in there and keeping it going.

    I think its now just a case of wait and see what Marstons want to do with the place and who will have the permanent tentantship?

    Definitely back to the Market Vaults so can we lose the "JD Burger Company at" from the thread title?

    It's a crackin' pub to have a drink and a bite to eat, so hope he makes a great job of it.
    Good luck to him.

    Depending on budget i wonder what changes are ahead?

    I know Ben Richards and I hope he makes a success of his new venture.

    I suspect he will want to carry on with offering burgers and lots of live bands.

    I like MV because it offers something different from the other pubs in Stafford, however it needs to do a lot more to topple my favourite pub in Stafford, the Floodgate.

    For a moment I thought this may be an application to change its use back to a proper pub but then I realised this had already gone through and a new landlord has been appointed :)

    I concur, I'm out next week for a very rare beer with my step dad/brother and were thinking of visiting.

    EDIT: Thought I should add they are two different people, this ain't Rugely!

    EDIT 2: Although before he was my step dad he was my uncle!

    This has been applied for many times by previous tenants including myself. Sam tried it before me, Andy has tried at No7 I believe. Council aren’t interested, it’ll never happen.

    It’s sort of like a traditional thing that when Marstons put someone new in the pub, they have to back up the new licensees ambitions to improve trade and obviously some outside area would do that. Said application is rejected and then everyone just accepts it and carries on as before.

    Are there any pubs left in Stafford where we don't have to dodge dog bowls and sniffy things?
