Slightly :offtopic: but just in case we were thinking of a venue in the Malmesbury area: The Smoking Dog of fond memory is no more. The staff have all been let go and the pub has not reopened. Butcombes (the brewery owners) are looking for a new lessee.

Since they want £60k a year rent (of which 1st quarter in advance), plus bills and staff wages, I won’t be applying . . . :lol:

I thought it was probably on borrowed time. That loss of income from me, Jim, Phil et al round about Castle Combe time was probably the final nail in the coffin. You will need to suss out a new venue for CC2021.

I will miss the beer, bangers, burgers, cider and live music festival :?

I’m watching for news of the BBBC, Mark, but this sounds really good

Yes, but is the BBBC event consistent with serving 'good quality food'
