A suggested, we had what turned out to be a very brief call with Humphrey Smith. Apart from confirming that the management team vacancy remains unfilled, effectively all that was said is “it’s our pub, we’ll sort it”.
I wasn’t able to raise any further points regarding our previous long-term suggestions, nor even raise any practical concerns about the ongoing vacant state of the fabric of the building (and the drains!)
As customers and neighbours we would hope the brewery would demonstrate some interest in our concerns and recognise the value in engaging with us. We’d be interested in any public/open or private/confidential thoughts on possible next moves before drafting another letter as Friends of the Anchor.
Always happy to hear from people via messages or the contact form. All contact treated in confidence unless you indicate otherwise.
