Did you realise that during The Renaissance the average alcohol consumption was 600 litres of beer per head, compared to the 74 litres recorded in 2011? Pubs should be the solution to, not the cause of, Britain's drink problem... 
Rarely a day passes without another horror story about the UK’s drinking problem: alcohol-related violence, debauchery in city centres, record demand on A&E resources, a liver disease epidemic and…

When getting the spacing right in your pub sign is really important... 
The creator of the sign for the Cornish pub did not leave adequate space between the words ‘pen’ and ‘is’

It's Friday night, so who's buying the rounds? Apparently, 3 in 10 of us will avoid buying our share... Personally, I'm surprised the figure is that low!

Stephen King to write a sequel to Christine. Or not, as it turns out... #christinelives  
I should have known something was up when Stephen King announced that he was going to write a sequel to his 1983 hit, and one of my favourite books of all time, Christine. The catch? He made the an...

Story
Tagline
The Pub Is The Original Social Network.
Introduction

“Tell Us Who You Work For”

I am the National Account Director for one of the UK’s leading pub-trade magazine and technology companies. The Inapub magazine is distributed to almost 20000 venues and individuals, and our Internet platform gives pubs the best solution to managing their online presence, social media, and customer communication.

“And What Do You Do?”

I have written extensively over the years for The Publican, The Morning Advertiser, the BII BUSINESS magazine and Inapub on social media and technology in the pub trade. Today, I write the Web Wisdom column for the BII and Technically Speaking for Inapub, but my day job is as a National Account Director at Inapub involves key account management of our leading clients, including Carlsberg, Greene King and Spirit Pub Company, and I am responsible for the product development and training teams within the business.

“What Experience Do You Have?”

After initial sales roles in the financial and housing markets, I got involved in computers in a retail environment in 1994. Since 1995 I have specialised in Internet solutions, focusing on statistical analysis and, latterly, social media and I spent eight years in a Business Development role managing a channel of resellers distributing our solutions.

In 2005 I bought my own pub and ran that successfully with my wife until 2013.

“Tell Us Something We Don’t Know About You…”

My uncle is TV magician Paul Daniels, I’ve been ‘the voice of Strictly Come Dancing’ for BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, and I once designed an oil rig.

“If We Went Out For A Drink, What Would You Talk About?”

Well, I’m married, with two children but, seeing as you’re asking… I can’t cook, don’t watch much TV and hate cheese and Marmite. I can talk a lot about nothing for hours on end, love cars and gadgets, have a small crush on Jennifer Aniston and a bigger crush on Formula One.

Mine’s a pint of Tribute, since you’re asking…

This was a great little find by the river in Cambridge (although, unfortunately, you can't actually see the river once you're inside the pub). The staff were great fun and the food delicious. Looking for a quick snack? Try the fish finger sandwich...

If you're looking for something different or a little unusual, this is the place to go. The food is delicious, the venue simply brilliant, and the staff attentive and fun. Don't walk in expecting your usual pub grub and real ale boozer. Use a fresh set of eyes and appreciate this as somewhere quirky and unique, a different venue to visit. Definitely best enjoyed in larger groups but just as fun for couples prepared to join in with the atmosphere.

Staying at the nearby Butlins Skegness resort, we used this establishment for a take away. The food was excellent, as good as I've ever had anywhere else, and the staff both efficient and very friendly. Although we ate at our caravan I collected from the restaurant, which looked superb and made me feel comfortable as soon as I arrived. I'd have no hesitation in eating here again or recommending them.
