The William Loosely (Billy Bobs) to close in August, was confirmed by a member of staff today.
let's hope its just for a refurb..
Oh dear I had heard similar comments- perhaps people were put off by Mr Tattler's disparaging remarks about the client base of Wetherspoons. And I think you need to check the meaning of rumour. If you have a reliable source to substantiate what you are saying it is not a rumour.
@Baldric I'm sure locals read the Gasroom avidly and avoid pubs where Mr Tattler writes withering put-downs about the clientele.
As for it being a rumour, it isn't a statement from the decision maker, but 3rd hand information about something that is yet to happen.
Its a statement from a member of staff who presumably is now making decisions about what they do in August, so the message may be incomplete but hardly third hand.
