    Joule's brewery of Market Drayton has bought the pub from Enterprise Inns, it becomes the brewery's 19th pub. A refurbishment is to be added to the brewery's development pipeline.

    It'll be interesting to see whether we end up with a more of a 'circuit', where everyone does well from increased trade, with a refurbed Rose & Crown, the new Sun, the P&A and of course Joxers. At the minute it does seem a little as if every new venture cannibalises trade from the ones already going.

    Fine young vegetables.. i feel the fud duds are taking back the town...what with youth unemployment and nothininthetelly i believe its a new error of the new middle aged rediscovering drinking out in town again

    The Sun was v busy Friday with the over 30s and the pieshop also busy on Saturday with a good mix of grey and died blinde hair

    Perhaps the old friday night cirque du stafford will return...8 pm in the sun, 9pm in the pie shop, 10pm in chambers, 11pm in the RAC

    Scottish and Newcastle have only got 2 pubs in Stafford, both long time closed Island and Antelope, it doesn't seem to mind though.

    The antelope is crippled by its location.

    The R&C was rammed last night before the Tommy Teirnan gig at the Gatehouse, must have doubled their weekly takings. A few even popped in there during the interval........

    R & C karaoke nights about 6 - 7 years ago when Bev had it were something else. Surreal on occasion.
