as mentioned moorings are at a premium but we should ahve our works done shortly to open our side of the dyke and the farmer will keep the other side open for holiday boats also so room for around 30 boats between the two sides.

this forum has shown what i constantly say, we are not for everyone but in this busy broads market place there is room for all business types. my focus has always been on a constant year around trade and to do that I need to not pander to holiday makers only and aim at a wider audience. i was always taught quality and consistency will always bring in custom long term.

stocking a john smiths or carling would never detract from ale sales as those drinkers are completely different. If you are able to try what we sell please do, but dont jusge until you have tried.

What a refreshing comment to hear!  Smile   Whether it be pubs or boatyards, I reckon we need more of that attitude.  So, I may well be putting The Lion on my list of pubs to visit  -  are the moorings in the dyke on the arrangement that it's free if you are eating in the pub?

farmers side £4 overnight and ours will be free but needs repairing first before it can be used (work ongoing). no conditions regarding eating with us but will monitor over the season.
until we get a grip on it we may place a ban on fishing and bbq's on our side though

Highly advisable on the bbq front, a lot of boats (mostly hire but not all) are very happy to use a pubs mooring and do their own food and drink on the boat instead of using the business that pays for the mooring repairs.
Always annoys the cr*p out of me when I can't moor at a pub I'm going to in till they chuck me out because someones bbq'ing at the moorings.

yes we would allow fishing from boats but hope that all will respect rules of moving lines for navigation as there seems to have been alot of issues lately with people not.
if it was to become a problem we would have to ban until addressed

I really liked the old White Horse, although concede it wasn't to everyone's taste.

IMHO, Pubman and Team have transformed it into something hugely better, which also won't be to everyone's taste ( althoughsuits me very well indeed.

Pubman's view on what to offer is absolutely on the money for me and have never had such a good choice...as he says if I want factory beer I can get it everywhere else and probably cheaper still in supermarket cans, if that's what floats your boat.

I was never much of a fan of the Thurne Lion, simply because in general the beer was 'ok' rather than memorable, the food 'usually ok', the general ambience was very tired (I had/have no interest in the various discussions on the merits or otherwise of the people who ran the place, in the same way I don't care to be interested in the life history of anyone in any shop I may or may not trade with).

Given Pubman's demonstrated track record in breathing new and vibrant life into a tired establishment I wish him and Team every success with the Lion and look forward to increasing my visits there, especially as my home mooring is in Ludham...a perfect distance for a swift short sail, lunch and home....or maybe stay for a few more  LOL boat-sail
