Ten years. In fairness.

    I pop into their Ranelagh bar the odd time for a quiet drink. it’s a lovely bar bit my god, the staff are awful. It’s like they go out of their way to avoid you – even when it’s quiet. Twice I’ve been served by drink staff. The only one that seems to have any urgency about him is that Peter fella in the picture but he’s rarely there
