NFR Have you heard the latest
« 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.
