Is it the moderately foul barmaid that now tends the bar, or the lack of Rachel, or what?

Where has Rachel gone?
She was the best thing about the Gardeners

whos the moderately foul barmaid? the woman who likes to like women or the oversized lady? (Not lisa btw)personally i think the former has an attitude problem, just wondered if i was the only one that thought this. It almost seems it is below her to serve drinks. Bit dumb considering she is working in a boozer

Maybe she just doesn'y like the kind of people who gossip on an internet forum.

I've always preferred pubs where the staff are surly.

... No, I like surly staff because they don't chat with customers. They hate them and can't wait to get them away from the bar.

Of course the oversized one (not the lovely Lisa)is going to get away with being rude and having an attitude problem cos she,s the managers girlfriend. By the way does anyone else think the manager is a bit crap?

Errr ... does anyone else think it is rather rude to attack people whose identity can very easily be discovered from the information that has been given, while simultaneously hiding behind a computer monitor and posting under an assumed name, like "Bag" for example? I am guessing "Bag" is not the name you were born with, Bag?
And in response to the original poster, Piggles, no I do not think the Gardener's has gone down hill. Maybe the next time you visit the place you might have a conversation with whichever member of staff you find to be "moderately foul" and try to resolve your differences!

Andy - you don't seem to understand. It's normal for someone connected with one pub to come on here having a go at another pub. It's like 'Does anyone know the best place to get a decent pizza?' followed by a post under another name saying 'I think Joe Bloggio's is the best place I've ever been'.

Ah, Bunter, but I think I do understand - although I do know where you are coming from in regard to other threads on this board! First, I am fairly sure I know the identity of the OP, and unless I am very wrong, she is a regular in the GA and has no connection whatsoever with any other pub in Lewes. And second, someone very closely associated with a rival pub in Lewes has already posted in defence of GA staff ... which is good to see ;-).

Andy - I stand corrected.

Candidates here for post of the week: -
Andy - the voice of reason, delivered calmy and errh reasonably, AND
Bunter - the ability to admit you're wrong
... so different to what we have seen recently on the forum - HUZZAH!!
.. for my part the GA is one of the great pubs of Sussex - excellent ale, snacks and conversation - always end up chatting to someone in here; a well managed pub a joy to frequent - long may it continue. Bar staff come and bar staff go don't get so stressed, give people a chance to settle.

Nisus Wettus - Thanks for that. Andy clearly knows what he is talking about and it seemed only right to acknowledge that.

I think it's a great pub, with great staff. I agree with Prick Stein, if you don't like it don't go. I have been in there many times and been served be a lot of different people over the years....everyone one of them was nice!

I can't believe people can be so rude. I personally am good friends with "the oversized one" (bag & me!!!) I gather by your post you are perfect in every way shape and form!!! Why not make an effort and say something in the pub on a busy say Friday or Saturday night, you never know her Father might even be in there to show you the way out!!!
On all accounts, the Gardeners is one of the best pubs in lewes and if you don't like it chose one of the others to drink in. i'm sure they could make do without punters like you in there anyway!
