Burnley pub set to go back to traditional look

First published in News

A WELL-known pub in Burnley is set to recreate an old-fashioned look as it make plans for the future.

Bosses at the Tim Bobbin, in Padiham Road, are seeking to return the hostelry to something resembing its former layout.

Plans have been lodged with the borough council to reinstate the original basement beer store and remove a flat-roofed toilet block.

And the open-plan nature of the pub, adopted in recent times, will make way for four smaller rooms, with a central ‘milling space’.

More alterations will also see ‘modern’ windows replaced with sash-style replacements which are said to be more in-keeping with the original 19th century building and rendering will be removed to expose the natural stonework underneath.

Two disabled parking spaces will be relocated elsewhere on the site and the land used to create a disabled toilet facility. And a ramp will be established to provide disabled access from the rear car park

Lay it out however you like. At 3 quid plus a pint I and others will continue to vote with our feet. When the breweries start charging reasonable prices they can stop moaning about how no-one visits the pub these days.

It's a pity that more people, ie. beer drinkers, didn't realise this 40-50 years ago, when it all started. When the original "Big 6" were formed, helped by slick and aggressive marketing, and a pack of lies, traditional, naturally produced beer was almost driven out by insipid, chemical-laden muck that wasn't even fit to used as dishwater. There were some areas, notably Norfolk, where "real ale" was virtually impossible to find. Now, thank the good lord, the trend is being reversed, thanks mainly to the advent of all the micro-breweries. And, coming back to the other posts, a lot ot it's reasonably priced.

Hope they are investing in external work. Pub looks awful going past. A real run down building. Good luck!

If you are being charged more than £3 a pint, then try another pub. There are plenty of pubs that charge under £3 a pint.

Around £2.50 is what you will pay for a cup of coffee in somewhere like Costa or Starbucks and they are not struggling for trade. And you don't get a pint of coffee either.

Last I looked, the Tim Bobbin was a Samuel Smiths house - they're all subsidised and cheap as chips.

If this is going to be a Samuel Smith pub we should hope it fails because of the appalling behaviour of Humphrey Smith towards his staff, customers and his neighbours in Tadcaster
