I am surprised they are open.
I use to visit this pub on the beach for years, until a few years ago I believe it is run by different people.
I got fed up walking to this pub and they were closed, but they leave the pub light sign on, so in the distance you think they are open.
Will never go there again!
I believe the lady who owns the CHINE still owns the pub, maybe tell the Tenants do not leave the light on giving people false hope.
NO WAY TO RUN A BUSINESS!

Lights may have been left on for security reasons.

The owner doesn’t give a dam, to her its nothing more than a hobby, she puts managers in and treats them like crap, that’s why the dump keeps changing managers.
