guy it got nothing to do with liking bonfire or not. i feel that the locals in there are not that talkative they seem to only want to talk to people they know. so they stick to there little groups. and friends that have lived in lewes a long time tell me the pub is full of bonfire people.

It must be those matches and straw sticking out you pocketsis that does it.
Are you trying too hard, or maybe you got a stick up your backside when you walk in there.
I can't stand the clique either, if they could only see themselves.

Don't talk about Gardeners Arms. Got barred from there cos a woman I was with was smoking a toke pipe at the bar. They've got no sense of fun.

thank you dog in a cape. thats what i was trying to say that there is a little clique in there. and there is no chance of them speaking to anyone that they dont know. the garderner is not that bad but the lews arms feels like a members club

Henry, the Lewes Arms is a members' club. The rules are very simple: (1) the pub must serve Harvey's or we won't drink there (applies equally to lager-, soft- and spirits-drinkers), (2) anyone can talk to anyone, (3) anyone can join.

I don't go into a pub to be bored by people I'm not interested in talking to me - if I want that I'll stay at home.

henry are these then your pub rules?
1.Never go in apub with someone you might talk to
2. Never go in a pub that someone you know MIGHT be in
3. Never go in a pub that someone you know MIGHT come in after you (and before you leave)
henry condider the maths - What is the Population of Lewes (of pub going age and inclination (ie with friends and interests that need to be discussed?) - how many Bonfire Societies? number of Bonfire Society members of the same age as detailed above? - number of pubs (that are worth drinking in and that you can hold a conversation in)? - then you can work out the probabliity of a couple of sociable Bonfire Society members cluttering up your errh local (no you can't have a local it conflicts with the three rules already established)
henry - errh get out more
Dozer you have people at home that are not interested in you and bore you? LOL

i not saying i go to a pub on my own and walk around trying to get people to talk to me i do have a friend. m pont is that when you go in to a pub at least 5 times a month you think you would start to get to know the locals and start talking to them. but i understand some people are boring and dont like to meet new people.
