The Jolly Farmer, Weybridge

I too have reason to dislike the set up at the Jolly Farmer, one month ago I applied to a company who were advertising for Pub Managers, Marion Healy got in touch with me and called me to Farnborough for an interview. I drove over 200 miles each way, all went well and I was all but offered the Jolly Farmer there and then. ‘Go and have a look, try a pint and let me know what you think. If it’s ok you can start in two weeks time’ she said.
I had a look, loved the pub and thought what great things I could do there, but the beer was lousy (Summer Lightning, lines need either cleaning or replacing), and phoned back. Then phoned back the following day, and the day after. …
After a week of no responses I decided to email her to see what was going on. Her answer was slightly apologetic in as much as she owned up to having no control over that pub as she and her husband were at loggerheads over the business and it would be down to him, not her!
Thanks a bunch eh! 440 miles to an interview for a job which doesn’t exist, no explanation, no comeback. Just a cup of coffee. This is no way to run a business and I can only wish you all the best of luck in prying the lease away and either getting someone else in or running it yourselves.
