thanks LF

i agree - there are very few pubs with separate rooms (i wish i did)

some good friends started a folk club in broadstairs but had to give up due to the few pubs with such rooms wanting to overcharge for their use - we're not all on the right side!!! this type of thing has to be measured on a profitable level over a period of time.

i feel that its better to break even, and ... get people in the pub, and ... give jobs to staff, and ... to make a platform for an artist, rather than play it safe and BORING!

its not just the rent that causes grief - it includes all the hidden bills as mentioned in my first posting - but you get the gist without me lamenting more.
