Title: NFR Have you heard the latest
Post by: Peabody on April 19, 2017, 05:51:23 PM
My son went into The Greyhound by Carshalton Ponds, only to be told that they wouldn't serve him because he was in his work clothes. He is a windscreen fitter, so he said what if I had a suit as my work clothes and they said that was OK. Please, please if you are local, please boycott this snob ridden establishment.

That's why "public houses" had public and saloon bars.

Wish you would tell The Greyhound that.

that used to be my local, Les Grey (the singer from Mud) would come in on Friday nights and buy everyone a beer  :beer:

I've not been in there for at least 20 years, the beer was never all that good anyway, I preferred the Jenny Lind (nearer Sutton)

I went in there once upon a time. Luckily for me they saw me pull up in a Horse & Carriage.
 I was wearing a Top Hat and Tails with Sleeves, and a Bow Tie. I had a cigarette holder in one hand, and a cane in the other. Plus one of my Footmen was with me at the time.
So I probably just got away with it.

I know a couple of men who just don't believe in work, prefer to live of their parents and education grants etc., bet they would be allowed in.
Enough recognition is not given these days to those that still do a hard days work, whatever it is.
The pub should be shut down.

I'm glad they can afford to be so fussy. Most pubs I know are struggling to the point of closure and are trying lots of ways to attract people in. I don't thing this one is a good idea.

Things have changed at the greyhound since my last visit there.

We were chased out for interrupting a BNP meeting! Never went back, funnily enough.

Everything that one would expect from such a pretentious establishment that is YOUNG’S.

Here’s one of their tight arse testimonies:

“Just to say what a wonderful evening myself and my WI friends had.....staff wonderful.....Thank you”.

I reckon the lad got a result. After all, who wants to drink alongside all those affected curtain twitchers.

Get yourself down to your local JD Wetherspoon for a good old drop of Lager.

Wetherspoons the blight of the industry.
They all look like glorified restaurants than pubs and responsible for the closure of good locals,3 in my area
they've shut,wouldn't give them a penny,I'd stop drinking if they were the only ones left.
As for Lager,go get some real ale down you and not that garbage.

Personally I think it's correct that people in their work attire should not be allowed into that splendid establishment,
what what what !

Assuming the manager, owners and staff on duty are all working, they should get their kit off and serve naked.

Also, your son should go round the back of the pub and 'make his own work' and then walk in saying "There's a blue
sports car outside with a broken windshield, anyone need it repaired"

I just love Youngs Best Bitter.
Title: Re: NFR Have you heard the latest
Post by: bill taylors apprentice on April 20, 2017, 02:38:53 PM
Youngs bitter was a great favourite of mine and I used the Greyhound on many occasions in the past along with many other traditional Youngs pubs.

Sadly since they started ripping out the original "traditional" features of many of their pubs only to install fake "traditional" features things have not been as good.

And since they sold up the ram brewery and stopped brewing their own beer its got worse!

Oh the irony.

On one hand a pretentious real ale boozer not wanting a member of the hoi-polloi in their establishment as opposed to a boozer who caters for the blue collar type.

Anyway I’m told JD Wetherspoon have a selection of cask and real ales. Scandalous!

But be it glugging lovely lager or quaffing real ale it all tastes the same after three pints.

Where I come from Lager is drunk in the snug by old ladies...lol
Wetherspoons wouldn't know how to keep a real ale or serve it that comes down to a proper landlord not some jumped up 20 something manager of Wetherspoons in his naff suit and winkle pickers.
They're a joke..
As for not knowing the taste difference after 3 pints,I assure you I'd know if I was drinking horse piss(sorry meant lager)..lol

Quick give me the address, I love old ladies, especially ones that drink in an intimate surroundings of a snug.

But I know lots who love all that real ale and cask ale nonsense and go all dewy-eyed at the thought of downing one of those flowery tasting beers.

But the beer always reminds me of the tang you get from drinking from a glass that has a residue of washing-up liquid that’s not been fully washed away.

So it’s a big no from me, but pass on my best wishes to those lovely, lager drinking, snuggly ladies.

Chin, chin.

That Mavis is a real goer, she can drink a Flagon of Adnams Ale from a Peuter Tankard without using her hands, whilst balancing two Bowels of custard in the air. At the same time singing Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire.

“Come outside”

No it’s not an invitation for a bout of gratuitous violence but an urgent call too Celia to leave the snug and join me as we gaze at the stars whilst listening to the Mike Sarne top of the pops song “Come Outside”.

I used to drink pints of Ramrod and Special at the Railway Bell in Gypsy Hill -there were a few Youngs pubs in that area of south -east London.

I used to go to the Greyhound  down the road from the Cottage to listen to bands  after games I remember.

Ray. I used to go to That Greyhound as well.
You'd have caught the last band after an evening game.
If you'd been to a Saturday game and went there to catch the last band you'd have been drunk as a skunk :0)
