Thank you. That's good news. I might just have to give it a try  Smile

So seven of us turn up to The Lion at Thurne yesterday (Sun 10th) to enjoy the Christmas Fayre that's been advertised both on posters and on the Lions facebook page. We arrive at 11.45am to be greeted with "sorry we don't open until 12 noon" No problem we can wait 15 mins, and enquire if the fayre is taking place as planned as it seemed very quiet. We were told that the fayre had been cancelled due to "pub problems". We were also told that the pub would close xmas eve and reopen in March 2018.
This seems very strange as that means they lose the lucrative News Years Eve celebrations. They have only recently told us they would only be closing for 2 weeks to upgrade the kitchen

What are "pub problems" ? Could it be that the strict food and drinks policy spoken of on this thread has come back to bite them on the bum?

I understand cancellations happen but even at 6pm yesterday facebook was not updated. We travelled 60 mins round trip for nothing.

If pubs want our support then they must communicate. They are quick to do so when advertising so they should also when cancelling. We will think hard about supporting future ventures there

There is an update by Kate Gabriel on the 24th November which says event cancelled?????
Does seem a bit of a strange carry on there.

They have so many sites its hard to find out whats going on/ There are two facebook ones
https://en-gb.facebook.com/thurnelion/
https://en-gb.facebook.com/The-Lion-Inn-Thurne-570887423013670/

Then they have event pages such as the one I linked to. This is the one where you can say "interested" or "going" etc. Once you say you are going the originator can then contact you direct with any further info etc.

Their main website was  last used 2012 ! http://www.lion-inn-thurne.co.uk/

Dave was this the one you saw https://www.evensi.uk/christmas-fayre-the-lion-at-thurne/236064368. We didn't see this until today, we had been looking at their facebook page.

Very strange

This is not the only Pub to have out of date websites still open - there is a link from an old FB page to the new.
I suspect the only way to clean up the system is to get an IT expert to clean up the system which may cost.
Maybe Cantley Computers has a fix ???
Some advice to publicans in the Morning Advertiser?
As many (most) businesses claim they get most of their new trade from the internet (and cry if connection is slow) Confused a solution needs to be found.

There is a strange anomaly I know of. Friends of ours bought the lease of a pub and started trading. There was already a brilliant website for the pub that the previous owners had made so they contacted them to see if they could take it over. The old tenants wanted stupid money for it so our friends declined and got their own made. The problem was the old site stayed live with the old tenants refusing to take it down. This is perfectly legal unless they seek to damage the new business. It caused lots of problems as some of the reviews on the old site were not favourable
In this instance of The Lion some of these facebook pages and websites could have been hosted by old tenants and its really hard to get them removed.

hope this post will help clear up any confusion, feel free to ask any questions i haven't answered

AN OPEN LETTER FROM TEAM LION AT THURNE

Thank you all for the support we have received since our opening in late may. We have now closed for work to commence on finishing the refurbishments ready for us to open for Easter time.
These include secondary toilets, lobby area, new windows, fascias and guttering, staff area, new septic tank, new gas tank, secondary garden space, car park and a few finishing touches internally.
Contrary to rumours we are not closing permanently but at the same time we made the decision to close earlier than planned as it wasn't financially viable to stay open any longer without getting the rest of the work done.
This year has been a tough one with ill health (myself/family/staff), chef crisis after chef crisis, equipment failure, building issues and general poor luck.
We have struggled our way through and have not always been at our best and we apologise to any customers we have let down this year.
We have a clear idea of what we need to do going forward and are already hard at work trying to address all of the areas brought up by various people this year.
This business has been the toughest challenge I have ever undertaken and it has nearly cost me my other pub in the process but we will not be beaten.
Thank you to all of my amazing staff that have worked so hard to get us through.
Hope to see you all next year!

Rick & Staff
