Yes indeed.
All too many people choose a village to live in partly because it has a pub and then never or very rarely use it.
Friends of ours have lived in Yarnfield for thirty years and I don't know if they've ever been in the Labour in Vain, so no surprise then that it's been empty for ages.
The Labour turned into a shithole after Brian & Jean left it in the 80s!
There was a bloke who spoke in a Canadian accent way back in 2004. (He originally came from Cannock) Him and his Mrs held a Vicars & Tarts party for the New Years Eve, My 41st. Long story shortened, they had friends who really took against something I asked them, and because my sister had a go back, they waited till she went the loo and beat the shite out of her.
He didn't give a monkeys as long as we kept putting cash in the till. I've been in there the once since that night.

When The Crown at Hyde Lea was my local, a couple used to come in once a year on Christmas day with visiting family, they used to joke about it being their annual visit.

It's always been the case that a bad tenant can seriously damage a pub, and if you complained to Enterprise Inns about that incident I expect their response was that the running of the pub is the responsibility of the lessee not them.
But conversely an excellent tenant can turn round the fortunes of a "shithole" pub.
