Another pub closure

Post by Marhak » Mon Mar 18, 2013 1:26 pm

I hear that the tenant landlords at the Engine Inn, Cripple's Ease, are getting out, fed up with unfair treatment by their own landlords: Punch, which screws them to the bone with rent increases, while Punch profits from their enforced poverty. When will breweries and chains learn?

Whilst there are still those who think that they can move down here and make a living out of these pubs etc, then the breweries, chains, and other landlords, will continue to charge ridiculous rents.
Quite often, there is a chain of these landlords, with convoluted leases, all expecting their cut, leaving very little for the tenant to make his living from.
If the pub fails, and no-one else can be found to make a sucker out of, then the building can be sold at a profit or left standing empty, and claimed as a tax loss.
Everyone, Cornish or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.

If a freeman on the land opened a pub, brewed his own beer and had sections for smoking and non smoking; I wonder how many would use it. 8-)
