Yes, I know I'm late but I have been busy. Plasterer upstairs as we speak. Paint rollers at the ready.
Is there anyone who wants to go to Patterdale and hasn't booked yet? I am looking for a room mate to share with.

Just had my walking boots heeled at the cobblers in the market for £8.50 and they did them the same day

Jennifer from the Patterdale Hotel rang me. She had noticed we were not in their diary for our usual week. I explained that we were in for the following week. She checked, we were there and she was pleased. Isn't it nice to be missed?

Just a quick update. Have located the parent company: Enterprise Inns at a Birmingham address. My letter of complaint has been acknowledged. They said they would forward it onto the Area Manager for investigation.
A very happy Christmas to all my walking friends

I was intending to fire off a letter of complaint on behalf of the Group when I got home.
The address the landlady gave me was The Millhouses, Millhouse Lane. I do not think this is a correct address.
After doing a bit of research on the internet, it would appear that The Barrell, seller of bad food and provider of poor service is or has been run by WL Leisure, Enterprise Inns and Embankment Inns.
An e.mail to WL Leisure bounced back
Embankment Inns has one director remaining,someone called Simon Argell at 951 Abbeydale Road S7 2QD. The accounts of that company have not been filed and there is a "not trading/insolvency" flag on one of the sites I checked out.
Since it is not at all clear who is responsible for this pub or whether they are likely to remain in business for very long there seems little point in attempting a complaint. We won't be going there again.
If anyone is on facebook or any other social network they may like to relate the bad experience we had today to the rest of Sheffield. Thats probably the best we can do.

I have eventually persuaded the Barrell Inn to let me have a menu for our Christmas lunch and I am attaching it to this blog. I will also send it around all the committee members via the generic email address. I cannot do tomorrows walk owing to an emergency dental appointment.
Please send your names and your menu choices to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or if you prefer you can text to 0777 352 5876.
I am told that the 2for£10 menu will also be available to us but they have not sent me them so anyone wanting to do that need only give me their two names (so I can confirm numbers). If the menus turn up we can do choices later on.
In the circumstances the Barrell have agreed that no deposits will be collected .
