Pubman said:   "i was always taught quality and consistency will always bring in custom long term."

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?

"Hi Pubman thanks for posting, just to clarify what will the closest drink to lager you will be selling at the Lion so I know what to order"

oh dear! there will be 5/6 lagers for sale at thurne  so feel free to order any you wish. the most 'sensible' ones will be spitfire lager, sam smiths lager and bitburger pilsner

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

Pubman, can you legally stop anyone fishing from their boat? I am not being awkward I really would like to know for future reference at other moorings  Smile



I read somewhere that
drinking was
bad for you, so I have
given up Reading.

AVG45,

Why couldn't he? His moorings therefore you moor for free on his terms, or you don't!!!

I think The Swan in Horning allows double mooring even though you pay for the mooring. Lots of people don't like the idea of double mooring, but there you have a clear choice, moor and risk being moored against, or don't.

Having said that, I rather suspect the no fishing is more to stop people leaving gaps for fishing, thus meaning less paying boats on the mooring.

Whichever I don't fish, but am really looking forward to visiting The Lion again. It does bother me who I give my money to, and whilst I would have given any new landlord a chance, Rick has a good proven track record and I'm sure The Lion won't disappoint.

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.

I'm really looking forward to visiting the lion and the white horse, my mate and I are avid real ales drinkers, the fun is trying them and finding hidden gems from artisan Brewers.
Rick obviously has a formula that works for him,and im all for it, roll on June ........ Smile
