This led to a walkout last week as a group of loudmouth Clarence regulars, getting tanked up on perry, was spoiling a quiet night’s drinking. You couldn’t blame the minimum-wage young barmaid. Sadly there was no one senior on hand to ask them to tone it down. Or ideally show them the door. Trackside regulars are hoping they don’t develop a fondness for perry, otherwise even the reopening of the DOC may not save them.
As an aside, it’s interesting to note that with the George also closed (again); it’s nearly a clean sweep for real ale in Bury centre. It’s the awful keg dives that are struggling. Now if only the White Lion would close, or come back to the real ale fold, we could claim 100% cask compliance.
