Beer - The Clubhouse or The Crown?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for that Webbo.

 

My main concern is the quality of t'beer offered. I've heard rumours that the beer on offer isn't what it was and that the City faithful these days head over to The Crown as the refreshments and serving operatives are a little more, how shall I say, pleasing?

 

Any views?

It is nice to hear that Vicky is back pulling pints, but I remain a tad concerned by the following comment from an old acquaintance:

 

"Saturday was the final straw for me.

 

It wont make any difference to anything but I have finally had enough of the regime in the clubhouse and I wont be attending for as long as it remains in place.

 

The Supporters Club Committee have made their views perfectly clear to the Board on more than one occasion this season, I gather, and if that can't achieve change then the only thing left for me to do is to take my business elsewhere.

 

I'm not so foolish as to believe that my action will bring the place to a standstill, of course. The rest of you can do what you like. Enjoy."

 

Do you think it might be advisable for me to encourage the travelling thousands (well mini bus full) from Cressing Road to adjourn to The Crown, just in case Vicky can't turn it around?

The Clubhouse has changed hands. I run it!

 

The beer lines have been cleaned, and the toilets, bar, glasses etc. etc.

 

We also sell coffee and tea...

 

You are very welcome of course.

Ah-ha! This explains many things. Having read the ramblings of the old one, I feared the worst. This is much more encouraging. I will advise the Iron faithful that t'Clubhouse is worth a look.

 

Just out of interest:

 

- do you do the pulling of pints as well or just co-ordinate the young lady/ladies behind the jump?

 

- oh and what range of beers are you selling these days.

Stuck with Carlsberg but am stocking real ales in bottles.

 

So.. Have Carlsberg, Export, Ansells Bitter, Tetley, Guinness and maybe Holsten on draught.

 

Tomorrow is our 1st night as it were.... and yes, I will be pulling pints!

Not a bad range. From my time at t'club, the most important thing was to make sure whatever was offered was in good nick and that pipes were regularly cleaned, etc. I'm sure you'll be on the case and will do well. I've just read John's prog. notes for tomorrow night and he is very supportive and complimentary of what you're trying to do - well done mate. It's nice to see someone actually taking on the responsibility to help the club improve - I'm impressed - good luck with it.

 

What's the situation with food. Do you plan to do rolls, etc., or is it back into the ground at the end of the stand?

Well done with the bar and good luck for the future Webbo.

 

A fine pint (or two) before the game and it was good to talk with you (and Laz) again.

 

See you both at Christmas.

Woooooooh wait a minute webbo]

As myself, Laz, Roland and now Zeal due to Vickys arrival are some of your best customers then you must keep the strongbow on tap or better still get in a cloudy cider instead / as well

I'd better not find just crap like Magners

That's a good idea DoY - one of your better ones....

 

So a cask of real ale probably has a life span of about 3 weeks? That works - not! Unless of course I open every day and become a pub.
