Agreed Exile. And I am sure that you will agree with me when I say that it is the perfect right of individuals to personally decide how to respond to the way in which a particular business conducts itself - to patronise it or not...

Agreed Exile:

The only people who have the right to dictate how a business is run is the people who invest their cash and time in said business.

That said i'm sure that most broadland businesses will keep an eye open on the various broads related forums with regards to comments on their business and take into account any reasonable comments.

Having visited the old ferry inn by car on several occasions I often felt the experience was marred by the wall of large cruisers blocking the riverside view. So reserving this area for small craft would definitely enhanse the riverside experience.

Smellyloo, I reckon if you wanted to view the river
without cruisers spoiling your view you could find many
places without having to go to the trouble of a popular
riverside pub with moorings for said craft!
load of cobblers springs to mind!
IF the pub don't want riverside trade it should close the
moorings and make it a viewing area!
And by the way its their pub and they can do what they
want with it,but I shall vote with my feet

Andy,

I`ve never seen the mooring full, so you don`t need to worry.

When I visit Horning I like to enjoy a pint at lunchtime in a riverside pub. The ample parking, large outdoor area and a large boat sales area makes that particular area an attractive location.

My opinion might be "a load of cobblers" but it is my opinion and observation. From memory their seems to be quite a lot of mooring space available there so to reserve the area in front of the pub garden for small craft would be more than acceptible if indeed that is the wishes of the landlord.

Andy with all due respect you are lucky enough to have a boat to be on and watch the world go by whenever you choose. I on the other hand can only sit at a table and look at your boat moored in front of me, so I have to come down on smellyloo's side on this one.
Of course if or rather when I get afloat again I shall probably agree with you.   Blush

Poppy I could not agree more.
All types of business offer a service. If that service suits us, we use it. If the service does not meet our needs, we go elsewhere. That is just normal in all walks of life.
Despite the reduction in pub numbers over the years there are still plenty left to choose from.
