    Firing all the bar staff isn't exactly a change I'm fond of, can't imagine I'll be back there any time soon.

    Really?!!!!!

    It's the closest decent pub to the office so we go there every couple of weeks or so. The staff have always been top notch.

    How very sad...

    Met one tonight, she said they've all been let go this week. Think she mentioned security too. Assume he's bringing his own staff in as none have been kept on, no notice period either as technically their contract was with the last guy so they don't officially work there until they signed new contracts (probably zero hour too? Regardless told to bugger off immediately).

    Hey it's Tyr here . I'm one of the former barmaids (the bigger girl) it is such a shame we don't work there and we are all really sad to have left I'm not going to publicly explain the situation as it could be labeled as slander because it wasn't a nice exit for any of us ... We will miss you all and I know we will all be meeting up in the bird in hand now and again so hopefully we will see some friendly faces there :) thanks for always being lovely and friendly when we worked ..I'm Gunna miss that place
    Oh and for those of you that would like to see Shaun again he runs a pub in Sheffield now called the three runs he has a Facebook page
    It's nice to see and hear from the people in town we will be missed truly heart warming and I speak for all of us when I say that
    Me (Tyr) Beckie and micheala and Laura hope to see you soon

    I would like to thank all of the proper Rose and Crown staff for the way you always made people welcome and provided an excellent service.

    Hopefully you will all find suitable positions in other employment soon.

    I suspect that the Rose and Crown will be missing quite a few customers based upon the feelings being expressed here.

    It may be better for customers to go in, order one drink and then leave on the basis that none of the original staff are working. The new management may then get the message that they can't treat people like this.
