A short view from the post today- mainly because our stay in the pub was cut short. We were at the Albany, as we usually are on a Friday night and we were most bemused when the bell rang at ten to eleven. This wouldn’t have been a surprise before 24 hour licensing but the Albany has had last orders 11.20 on Friday for over ten years. Apparently the manager is on holiday and the relief manager needed to leave early and there was no-one else to cover the extra half an hour.
First world problem it might be, but it did mean our usual Friday night was cut short by half an hour and therefore a pint- hopefully it will be back to normal next week!
