I have long argued that there should be no "reviews" section on the Forum. Basically because all they ultimately achieve is to damage local businesses.
That Pubman feels that he is forced to stand in front of a forum firing squad pretty much says it all. The transformation of the White Horse shows exactly where the Lion will end up. It will take time for sure and if any individuals are not happy to go there in the transformation period, there is a very simple answer. Wait until it is finished!
I for one am extremely grateful when a knowledgeable landlord takes over, invests heavily, and transforms an iffy pub. And in my opinion they do not come much more iffy than the Lion in the last decade or two. So I think that encouraging and supporting rather than back biting is the way forward in such circumstances.
We, the customers, all know a long list of other Broadland pubs that have shut over the years. IMHO we should get right behind those that remain.

Pubman, the young girl who stuck the sign out at 9am was the girl who told ke the kitchen was having a test rather than the meat delivery hadnt arrived.

If i was told no meat, i would have had tea and toast instead.

As for no reviews, suggest this forum shuts up shop then.

If im waiting till the pubs finished and fully staffed to get a breakfast when it was advertised as “breakfast every day over bank hols” i will try again later next bank hol weekend.

Not a review. More a historical comment.
Nothing that is said now can have any effect, for good or ill, on something that no longer exists. The past decade or two are done and dusted. The lion has started a new chapter. Hopefully a better one.

Not at all why would I be!!! I think people should put their findings on this site. I slated the pub at Ranworth for the disgraceful way they treated us a few years ago, haven't been back since....
If you get really sh**ty service you should let others know

Quote "If you get really sh**ty service you should let others know"

In my view only really useful if you let others know EVERY time you get good service. Otherwise a reviews section with just a bunch of whingers trying to ruin a business for one bad experience is pointless. One of the reasons I don't use the reviews section and prefer to go and see for myself. These days the only thing bad reviews do, is help me to form an opinion about the reviewer. I prefer to visit and experience for myself if a business is good or not.

Just because The BA make a request, don't automatically assume they have the powers to make such requests!! Keeping a careful eye on an Authority which is making it's own rules.
