James May gave us a tour of his new pub

You may have heard in recent weeks that James May has bought half a pub. Although it's still having finishing touches added to it ahead of its opening next week, James kindly offered to give us a sneak peek at what's to come.
Sorry in advance for the audio, James was wearing a very scratchy jumper.

    I guess we'll see if May's "star power" is enough to bring folks from all over the internets and make this a profitable endeavour.

    The ridiculously high VAT on pub beer compared to supermarket beer is indicative of the shortsightedness of UK politics over the last 20 years.

    Get a decent chef that can add up - the cooking bit is easy ! After 25 years in the industry that’s the downfall of most pubs ! Bad maths and chefs that don’t listen to the punters !!

    In America also. The bars are dead, even before COVID19. Modern, old, does not matter. Well,, for one thing, meeting people has gone out of the bar and into social websites. People would rather gather at homes or simply drink alone in front of their massive flat screens. You say you go to bars for the drinks? Why pay for outrageously priced liquor? The same brand can be bought at the market for much much cheaper. The younger generation just turning 21 isn't into bars. Jeremy, what will you do with that pub? Even if it launches well, your customer base will rapidly die off from old age. (Me? I worked and ran businesses since I was a young kid, legally too young to work.)

    How could you not feature the pupper?? Love the place, it's really nice looking. How about just calling the loos the "Lavatories" and be done with it. Or you could go full 1950s and call them the "Lounges." Maybe leave off genders and just let people go when they need to.
