Pub with no fear thanks to Bob.

I am a regular in The Nags Head and fully support Bob Tidswell in his stand against the brewery over rent.

Shortly after Bob took the pub over he had the misfortune of certain "ne'er do wells" frequenting this village hostelry (not from Lazenby by the way) and through this he lost a lot of the village custom.

Realising the error of his ways he set about barring the troublemakers and turning it once more into a village pub, helping organise and sponsor the newly-formed village football team, running charity nights for good causes, a pool team and, this season, a darts team. Does this give the impression of a tenant who does not try to attract people into the pub?

In the time after his crackdown on the louts and undesirables he suffered more aggro than the normal person would put up with: windows broken, car trashed, tyres slashed, threatening phone calls.

At the end of the day he was only trying to earn a decent living.

I hope the situation is resolved soon and Bob can get back to running the pub.

Good luck, Bob. I think this letter speaks for most who use the Nags Head.
