Red Lion could be roaring success again

Shazza: "We likes it as it is like..."

Ever-expanding pub chain J D Wetherspoon is set to take over the Red Lion pub in College Street, Petersfield.

But Petersfield residents have mixed feelings regarding the news, at least according to our hastily convened vox pop.

We spoke to four young customers who were seated outside the Red Lion, in the car park - Duane, Shazza, Troy and Tyler - none of whom would divulge their age.

“Nightmare,” said Troy. “I mean, what’s wrong with it as it is?”

Shazza added: “Yeah we likes it as it is, like. You only has to get one drink of coke to get a glass an then you can top up with vodka from a bottle all night like.”

Tyler could see problems with the new management.

“Do Thunderspoons or whatever they are called ‘ave bouncers?" he mused, unexpectedly. "They do don’t they? Outside like.”

Duane chipped in: “Nightmare”.

We also spoke to Norma Leah Brandy, 86, from The Spain.

She said: "It's got to be good news, definitely good news; well I mean, the Red Lion is crap isn’t it? I only come here because I’m barred from all the other pubs. This place will let anyone in.”

  1. Time and effort - There are time considerations that must be taken into consideration when reviewing a new business opportunity.

    Enjoyment aside, there is a business side to this type
    of photography that is imperative so as to establish high standards, deliver
    quality service and ensure a smooth operation. I started my own photo card business, and
    I have to say, business is great for me.
