Back To The Middle

This is hard for me to post, but I’d like to share. I thought I’d show you the beginnings of a little progress I’ve made recently. I’m planning to blog a lot more about all this, but in brief, for now; the first photo was taken a couple of months ago & the second was…

Pub love

We arrived in Kentish Town in the spring of 2012 with one simple aim; take an ailing and decrepit old local boozer and bring it back to life. Following a tough, X-factor style selection process, we’d been chosen to take the lease on The Grafton, a sorry pub that had been so lacking in care…

Silly Season

I noticed it has been a couple of, er, years (years?) since my last blog post so thought I’d venture back into the realm of writing things down. Here goes… So in what I’m pretty sure will live on as the most ludicrously stressful three months OF MY ENTIRE LIFE, I went through some fairly life-changing projects…

So I opened a pub…

My partner and I bought a filthy run down boozer in North London a few months ago. It was the kind of place that most people were too scared to venture into, where a pint only cost £2.50, but left you sick as a dog; where mice and ants and mould and slime were at…
