    Could easily see Young's snapping it up, and building fancy hotel rooms above.

    By the time this happens, you'll be lucky with Youngs if you can even get a pint out of them for £5, the amount of times they enjoy hiking prices in their pubs.

    Yups, since Youngs took over the Manor Arms a couple of weeks ago, a pint of Estrella has gone up 20p already.

    Went last week by chance and had a nice session.
    Had a meal too which was about £8, wasn't amazing but nor was it bad.

    \just thought you might like to know that the majority of the shares of LT Pub Management Ltd, the new owners of Crown & Sceptre, are owned by Burac Trade & Investment Corp - a company associated with Lord Ashcroft, and registered in the British Virgin Islands

    I wonder whether either the Labour or Lib Dem electioneers will be choking into their pints tomorrow?

    The candidates won't - they'll be at the count at the Town Hall.
    Result probably around midnight I guess.

    Will be interesting to see who comes from Conservatives, Greens, UKIP and WEP
