Every so often out Pint Sized Community Pub makes the headlines...
To promote the news that our pub had converted to being an off-licence during lockdown one of our shareholders, Adam Batstone, wrote an article about what we were doing and arranged for an accompanying photoshoot of the Thursday evening 'rush hour' when regulars stock up on beer before Thursday's weekly virtual quiz night.
A few weeks later we got news that the Daily Express were interested in running the story but didn't know until the day of publication (Friday, 29th of May) that we'd be featured on the front page! The double page story inside the paper featured an interview with our pub manager, Neil, who talked about the success of the off licence and even included a question (and answer) from the pub's virtual quiz night. The question was 'How many draft ales are on sale at the Craufurd Arms during lockdown?'.
A big thanks to Adam Batstone for organising the article and getting us such great, national newspaper coverage. By the way the answer is 'five'..
