Cheers Courtney. I'll have a pint of Stella please.

Kind regards.

Congratulations, and the best of luck with your new venture!

I might have to get me a ticket to Nuneaton now, and play some pinball .....

Excellent job, Courtney. That is a bit bigger challenge than rescuing a woodworm-infested radio!
I wish you and the team all the very best in your new venture.

Thanks Mike for the heads up, unfortunately, episode not available, would have liked to see that.

I echo the others sentiments, good luck, fair play to you, Andy.

What a refreshingly good idea!
I wish Courtney and her business partner huge success.
They'll have to name some part of the pub 'Everard corner'!

Wow, I've only just seen this.....

What can I say, I am overwhelmed...

We actually called the main room the Billy Breen Bar.

We have over 50 machines here, some video games and some classic vintage Jukeboxes too although due to reliability they are just for show. I am actually looking for a wooden 405 line TV to go on a shelf, just for show in the Billy Breen Bar.

This is a HUGE venture and I am pretty scared that it will be a huge failure but I have to try, right?

Thanks again and please, come and visit!!!
