Re: Restaurant/takeaway ideas

Thanks for the clarification, that makes far more sense. As for The Tumbleweed Arms.. who knows what's next.

Re: Restaurant/takeaway ideas

I am of course assuming this is the pub in Castle Street. I don't know of the food offered by the re-opened Hotel in Hertingfordbury. I had heard of the red card being shown to several regulars who politely enquired about the business plans. There may have been other justifiable cases, but the ones ...

Re: Will Writing Solicitor?

Remembered this and noticed a sign in the 'boxes' shop next to Mr. Horton's on Castle Street saying free will writing until the end of July. Glad the shop is still in use. Quite a niche USP, boxes. I can only think of a shop selling niches being more specific,
of that ilk.

Re: House on Millmead way

Blissfully crime free in 2018, expand the search to see where things are not quite so harmonious.

That said Hertford is a very safe and pleasant place to live in all fairness.

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

I didn't say it was due to the new trains. What I said was that 40 years on, with the technology improvements that are now available in terms of trains and signalling, how come the best journey time is 25% slower than before? When I travel to work I'd very often like the fastest way in. There may be...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

I beg to differ. The new trains are being touted as something very special and they should be given there's about 40 years in age difference. What folks are complaining about is that the length of their commute has increased by 25%. Think on that. 40 years on and the trains are 25% slower. What used...

Re: Fullers Force Closure of The White Horse

Popped in last night as Stefan is quietly selling off his bottled stock. It's true that Fullers have bankrupted him as they did Nigel and Chris before and caused quite a lot of financial harm to others who were able to escape. Stefan had fought long and hard for a rent reduction. What he got instead...
