Beardy Black boy/ oberon sessions (52* d) RE: Black boy/ oberon sessions 28 Feb 06

Les, I have spoken to Dean as well. The information is now public knowledge among CAMRA members so dont hold back old boy. This is what I know.

Dean relinquishes the lease on the Oberon tomorrow, 1 March. Admiral Taverns, new owners having purchased the pub in last month, are advertising the pub for sale on the open market but already have an interested party, Paul Dixon Group. PDG have bought the banana warehouse next door and want to raise that area to the ground and build a new development on it. Problem is its in a conservation area although we suspect a deal has already been done with council. Should PDG get the Oberon chances are it will be demolished without re-opening again.

As for Dean he is taking the lease on the White Hart, Alfred Gelder Street from 13 March. He has brewery renewing handpulls and beer lines in next fortnight so real ale should be back in the pub. Are you hoping to move session to there?

Les, any other news from your conversations with Dean?
