I just want to let you know how much enjoyment I get from reading your books. They make me laugh out loud! The only other author who does this is Bill Bryson. So I would say you are up there with the big boys! Keep on writing! --J&D Brit.
I keep copies in the pub toilets for my customers' use. Lots of them read it as well... --LVA Chairman
JOKING APART, George tells us about all the possible characters in his pub with compassion and a great deal of tongue-in-cheek. Hilariously funny and full of irony and self deprecation. We love you George, gives us more laughter, please... --PO Monthly

George in his wisdom decides to take over the running of a public house. One that is not exactly the hub of the local area. Indeed its struggling to keep going and George gives us his monthly diary of whats happening as he tries to get the bar back on its feet. Only someone who has spent a great deal of time watching people would spot the characters would visit the bar . The bloke who tries and usually succeeds in not buying a round, the old bloke in the corner who drinks a skin full but never falls down. The darts team who are judged not on their matches but on the spread the landlord puts on at half time . The list is endless.
The book does have its sad thoughtful moments but one the whole it was a good read and a bit of an eye opener as to some of the goings on behind the bar.
From the cummudgenly OAP in the corner, to the baudy stag party on a friday night, George tells it how it is, extremely funny.
I do think this author could write about a visit to a funeral parlour and make it the funniest thing you have read.
I hope you buy it and try it and enjoy it as much as I have.
