Sorry for the lack of updates but I'm still trying to convince TDC that I'm not trying to open up a Mega-Spoons with lap dancing, sychronised rioting and under age drinking binges. They seem to have no concept of what a Micro Pub is and have ignored my suggestion of a site-visit to the Butcher's Arms. They have whinged about everything from refuse building up outside (I'm only selling draft beer for goodness sake - how much rubbish is that going to generate?) to the cooling system. Yes, that's right, the cooling system used successfully at pubs and beer festivals up and down the country. I'm still fighting, however, and have some good people on my side - I'm now even more determined to see it through. Watch this space.

The draft lease arrived from the landlord's solicitor today. Lots of legalese to work through over the next day or two but at least I have something to do, following over a week of silence from TDC. The bar-stools are polishing up well.
