Apologies for the upcoming rant.
The bloke that runs The Anchor Inn is a total nobber.
Every time I have been there since he bought it, the service/food/beer/prices/attitude etc etc have been appalling.
I will never go there again.
the quicker he goes out of business the better and get
someone in there who actually understands people and the pub trade
rather than the wannabe gangster/badger baiter who is the
current incumbent.

Strong words, but I totally agree. I used to work for him. He isn't a 'people person' which is surely what being a landlord is about.
His dad was a lovely guy, a lovable rogue, whereas Simon is just a rogue.

You all know what he is like you have read it on here BUT you still go down there so where do you get off being a bunch of HYPOCRITS just boycott the place . and go somwhere else and find somthing else to moan at !!!!!!!

I met Simon Thomas when I
first moved into his area for delivering milk. He was a hard working man, running to houses. He addressed me as Mr. until I said call me Jim. I also met his father ,Glyn, in the Royal Oak at Barcombe.
The family are just another Sussex farming family; they probably just don't tolerate fools.
I take my hat off to Simon for buying the alledgely unmortgageable Anchor (flooding,etc.) and making a go of this unique pub. I may visit, with Mrs. Sussex, for a meal in the near future- and report back.

Please do Jim. The (very) last time I went there the food was plain disgusting. Simon may have been hard working but now (and probably then) he is an obnoxious little wan***.

I have read many threads about the "obnoxious" Simon Thomas but never put two and two together. I realise now that I knew him when he ran the Winning Post in Plumpton Green - top bloke. He left to run a pub near Bodiam and was successful there, so I understand. If you really don't like him, just don't go to his Pub. There are plenty of others who do.

I have known the familye for many years and they are all real grafters the boys when younger could be a bit of a handfull , as most lads with a bit of spirit are, but they have always been very pleasant and respecfull to myself and my family , so I must speak as I find ,A hard worker with the Midas touch Good luck to him

Virtually run out of the Winning Post, wife ran the White Dog at Bodium, and the Anchor less visited than it's ever been. Hardly the Midas touch!

The others brothers are fine though, but they don't have anything to do with Simon.
