Mooching through the latest edition of the Morning Advertiser (Officially The Pub Trade's Favourite), I came across a lengthy profile of Phil Thorley, our Frank's No 1 son.
The article ranges from Phil's views on Ramsgate ('You're going to think you're in Monaco', another line nabbed from yours truly!) to his views on Our Gordon Master ('The government is pathetic. It’s like the Licensing Act. They didn’t consult us about that. They just told us what they were going to do.')
Then there's this gem on customers: 'The good, the bad and the ugly - they’re the people you’ve got to know.' Hmm. Well I know what you mean Phil. There are certainly one or two Thorley Taverns round here where I just can't seem to get the music from the Star Wars bar out of my head whenever I walk in!
