I here that the Landlord of the Anchor in Barcombe Mills is leaving. Whoopeee!!!!!!. Can anyone shed any light on this? I'm guessing he's realised how much he up-set most of Brighton over the summer.

The facts are that the popular Landlord of the Royal Oak in Barcombe, is retiring at Christmas. The rumour is that the Landlord of The Anchor is interested in the vacancy, but Harveys who own the Oak are looking for a couple to take it on. Read the facts on Harveys web site.....

Oh no! Hopefully the shotgun loving megalomaniac will be told to 'do one' by Harveys. The Royal Oak just needs a friendly couple who can bring the pub up to date, with a good range of beers and good food...without making it in to some tossy country toffs pub.

sorry to be thick but whar did the landlord do to upset most of Brighton?

Back to this place again?
Most of Brighton? How about most of Sussex?
As the landlord of the Anchor has made a Merc convertible out of the Anchor in two short-season years it seems unlikely that he'll leave it (unless he needs to sell it to pay January's tax)
Hopefully there would be no way he could take on the Royal Oak at Barcombe as almost all of the residents of Barcombe can't stand him and the pub would die in a week.

Heaven forbid. Has he got something against Barcombe? Revenge for an unloved childhood?

Mr T is the only person in Barcombe that constantly makes me feel on edge. Instead of spotting a business opportunity of offering hampers (or something less grand) for people wishing to enjoy the pub surroundings; He would rather shout at people having a pic-nic on the field opposite in an intimidating manner.
I love the fact he usually wears combat shorts whilst driving his Landy as if he was on safari!

Harveys would not consider Mr Thomas a candidate for running the Royal Oak if they were aware on the huge number of damning online reviews Barcombe's Anchor Inn has received since he took it over.
I hope they are aware of them.

Has anyone else noticed the stickers of bullet holes on his Land Rover? I mean seriously, what a jackass. Bring back the old pub and stop butchering what could quite happily be one of the nicest pubs in Sussex.

Re: Mr Anchor(!)
Wow!! After our visit to The Anchor and meeting Mr Thomas and his wedding advisor, with my daughter and her fiance, we found him most obliging and he couldn't do enough to accommodate our needs.
The pub is obviously well looked after with a lot of love put into it. We shall be returning with friends very soon!
To find a more genuine character in the guise of landlord....you'd be hard pushed.
It seems his character has been subject to some really bitter and unfounded accusations. A real shame, cos we found him to be extremely pleasant. We give him a REAL thumbs up. A beautiful place for a wedding venue.....recommend people go and take a look for themselves.

So flattering, Mr. Thomas couldn't have written a better advert himself - or maybe he did!

I see Anchor Inn landlord Simon Thomas and the hired help are up to their old tricks with their pathetically see-through positive posts.
