    But isn't an Acv just something that gives a period of six months for the community to buy the pub if it were being sold? How does it affect the current dispute?

    is that that then?
    Cant we buy it as a cummunity? no idea how to do that but is anyone thinking along those lines?

    My understanding is that the option to buy only comes up when the venue is for sale, not on lease, as it will be to fullers.

    I saw this guy play again last night - I really love his dry wit - so looked him up and the first gig that came up was at the Half Moon. Another reminder of what we've lost. :(

    Repeating myself I think but yeah this is about right (someone clarified before that it also applies to very long leases but again that doesn't apply here). It's extremely toothless legislation when applied to someone like the Dulwich Estate who aren't about to be selling their holdings any time soon, it's just not what they're about.

    To be honest I'm not really sure there was ever much scope within the planning appeal either. They don't seem to deal with that level of detail really - it'll still be a pub and that's probably good enough for them.

    I miss Lydia she was lovely. Wonder what Mickey Two Suits did to upset her, he's a lovely bloke.

    It's actually Jill's list. Fair play to Lydia though - when the pub flooded on her watch it was open the next day. Some difference eh?

    It is totally real. I used to work there so seen it loads of times. Always made me laugh when I went out of the back.

    Mickey Two Suits used to go a bit over the top insulting Jill after he had had one too many so got barred a few times, let back in then permanently barred.

    One Armed Keith lost his arm after doing a runner from the Old Bill over some railway tracks, tripped over and landed on the live rail.

    I could tell you why most of them are banned but it would take me all night.

    Yeah they've done good work. To be honest although it would be nice I'm not all that hung up on the live music thing but I would really like it to be an actual pub rather than another quasi-restaurant and they've done well in defending that at least. Exactly how well we'll find out I suppose but the effort has been excellent.

    I think that the front bar will remain a bar and the side bar will be an eating area, much like it was before it closed.

    So whilst the HM website is now up and building work's going on, this strange film arrives:

    I heard they won't be showing football. No idea if it's true or not.

    very likely

    I know that's largely down to the ideas that they have for the pub but I wonder if Sky have finally pushed it too far as far as costs for pubs to have the football go (plus there's BT Sport as well now so another subscription for them to pay). The number of places that have it is going down quite a lot.

    i think thats as much down to the fact that pubs have gone down the gastro/craft route, and loads of sports through the week doesn't seemingly fit with that vibe.

    They don't want oiky football types in spoiling the foodie vibes.

    Took me ages to work out what I was watching there. I know its been a bit chilly of late, but is a balaclava really necessary.

    Not sure about letting Fat Paul, one armed Keith or Ms Tant back in though.
