Barrel-Dregs has been run for many years, we change all the identifiable details, but give you an insight as to many of the sharp or bad practices by a number of companies, in most cases they are just legal but morally unacceptable.
We have a number of Pub owning companies that we will not recommend, their actions have featured in Barrel-Dregs too many times, we did hope that by highlighting their antics they might change, but in Barrel-Dregs terms “Leopards do not change their spots, they cover them with more Mud.”
The Weights and Measures have finally arrived and investigated a number of pubs at this moment of time, the results are restricted until they have been reappraised because the intial findings have caused apparent concern as to the accuracy and possible legality of the system.
To quote, the lessee has declined to be identified for obvious reasons.
Weights and measures came in today and carried out an inspection of the equipment. As far as I could tell he had concerns over the fact that the units are hidden with no counter, there is no proof of calibration , the ease at which mistakes could be made, the delay in data retrieval and I can’t remember the rest. He was chuntering something about weights and measures and said he had serious concerns.
He has taken the details of the manufacturer of the actual units, Brulines and was going to investigate, along with other Trading Standards areas.
It’s a start, lets keep it going the more checks that are carried out will confirm it’s accuracy or inaccuracy, if it is proved illegal or inaccurate a lot of legal action could be in the offing, hopefully the boot will be on the other foot for a lot of lessees.
