Six Weeks in.....
We thought it helpful to give you an early update as to how things were going at the Foresters Arms with our new tenants and asked Keith and Lesley to write a few words. Here they are:
We took over the running of The Foresters on July 27th. We have now got six weeks under our belts and what a six weeks they have been. We have been fortunate to have inherited a great team, who have been very patient in letting us get to know the systems in place, especially in the dining room. Thanks guys. Little things have surprised us. We knew you liked cask ales but wow, the good folk of Coverdale sure love their wine. We have changed the wine supplier and you seem to like the results. We have continued the policy of using local breweries for their excellent beers but, we will introduce some well-known national brews into the mix.
We took delivery of an all singing coffee machine this week. So we will be open from 10am for really good coffee. If any ladies would like to take advantage of this facility after the school run, we would love to see you. Talking of early morning opening, it has been our pleasure to host a number of shooting breakfasts. This makes our days very long but very rewarding.
You may have seen my debut as a page three model. The Darlington and Stockton Times featured our planted drum kit, which stands on the front patio of the pub. This has attracted many positive comments and, lots of pictures taken.
