Just noticed this on the Fullers page for the pub.

A quick Google finds this...
Address The Gibraltar Castle. Lower Luton Road. Batford. Harpenden. Hertfordshire. AL5 5AH.
Licensee: Anthony Kavanagh. Tel01582 460005 ...

..but the current one is Tim Ayling.

Once bitten?

Hope he knows what he's letting himself in for, unless he's doing a 'holding' role for them.

I've heard from a "reliable source" that this will be a holding role..... And to Stef. Ran an excellent pub, IMHO kept his real ales better than anyone before him (sorry guys) & another Fuller's casualty. They will never bloody learn....... :evil: :evil: :evil:

Agreed Mr. Piglet, Stef did a fine job with keeping the beer, and making the most out of what Fullers allowed him to sell.

Lease for sale as of 20th September. 19k. Noticed the builders in there last week.

Nigel was bankrupted on 60k.

Hate to see people leave the place nursing a bruised wallet. I so hope things change for the better soon, outright sale at a sensible price would be the best.

Jumped the gun there it seems. £19k is for the in goings. The rent is TBA. They assess the cut of your cloth and decide what it would take to bankrupt you within three years on previous form. Joking of course, your honour.
