GUEST,Al Have Sam Smiths pubs banned ALL music? (133* d) RE: Have Sam Smiths pubs banned ALL music? 08 Dec 04

It shows a total disregard for their customers if you ask me.

There are other ways to protest than to make life miserable for your customers.

So what if it's gone up to 1,000 per annum, it was probably under priced to start with for a professioanl entertainment venue.

With an 800 per year increase (1,000 per year fee) thats only 20 per week for a licence. A juke box will take that amount in a night.

I spend 50-60 per week in my local Sam Smith's.

I'm never going back. That's already cost my them 3 x the increased fee even if no-one else leaves my local.

It's about time Sam Smiths came into the 21st Century and realised what customers expect:

Pool Tables
Up-to-date Juke Boxes / Video Juke Boxes
Large Screen Entertainment - ie. Plasma / Projection Screens for sporting events etc.
Sky TV
Decent Outside Seating areas with adequate heating
Decent modern interiors in good repair

Other pub chains provide these, there are 3 other pubs within 5 minutes walk of my Sam Smiths and at least 10 or 11 other pubs within 5 minutes drive.

Yes, Sam may be trying to keep beer prices low.

But everyone I know has said they'd rather pay and extra 5-10p per pint (which would still leave his beer by far the cheapest)and have all these facilities than have no facilities and very slightly cheaper beer.
