Well the season of good will is upon us and excess is the order of the day.

Here at ‘The Hart’ we again put our greed and avarice to good use, we held a charity race night and raised £265 for cancer research. All i can say about that is well done guys well done !

Christmas eve and Christmas day passed as always busy in the bar with lots of regulars and many not so regulars reveling in the season of cheer and good will, it is a shame that people cant be as nice ( and free spending lol ) all year round. With the new year rapidly approaching thoughts turn inevitably to ‘the new years eve bash’ and as a publican to the out poring of an alcohol fueled emotion tsunami that is the chimes of midnight, with its attendant tears and Bonn hommee.

For myself  ‘the new year bash’ is more a trial of nerve and guile, as it is my role to keep the emotional torrent under control whilst supplying the emotional rocket fuel. I often feel that this night above all nights high lights the dualism of the publican, for we are in essence parasites living of peoples social interactions and weaknesses. We are both poacher and game keeper as we allow or even encourage social degradation and excess, we prey upon the weak addicted characters in our society whilst espousing social responsibility and all that is proper and honourable . We landlords are as is stated ‘fit and proper persons’ in the eyes of the law licensed drug dealers if you will, but drug dealers none the less.

Todays madness … well today its a bloody moana-gram….. 

Had a phone call today on behalf of the county fire officer, it seems that the government ( you know the berks who have buggered the economy ). Have decided in there infinite stupidity that pubs in general, and mine in particular are aT high risk  of fire !

It seems although people cant smoke anymore we are still ‘high risk’ as we store flammable chemicals ‘ yes they are on about good old lovable alcohole’ and  to make things ‘safer’ for us all the fire brigade can’t come and offer safety advice anymore as they have done for years ! 

No we have progress ( that thing they do that kills rain Forrest’s and achieves nothing but keep them in new bits of paper ) we now have to have a ‘FIRE RISK ASSESMENT’.

yes you have guessed it they cost…… lol 

So now i need to spend money on a piece of paper ‘ think that stuff burns ?’ to show why n how we might have a fire n what I’m going to do to reduce the risk of  it etc, this will cost £199 pounds and several hours work. So i have one question dear reader ‘ do you feel safer’ knowing i have a nice new bit of paper .

This bloody country is drowning under this paper and bull shit government .    ARGH ARGH ARGH

A bit about us….

Alex and Wayne

The White Hart is a friendly country free house, it is owned and operated by the Moore family. The family consists of Joan ‘my mum’, Wayne ‘me the landlord’, Alex ‘my better half’, Charlie ‘my son’, Tamsin and Daisy ‘our daughters’

We have had ‘the Hart’ since September 2001 and have worked to turn the pub into ‘the heart’ of the village. The family all take part in the day to day running and life of the pub, ( our home ) and we try to make our customers feel that they are visiting friends.  We pride ourselves on our family togetherness especially as seldom does a Sunday pass without ‘the girls’ helping daddy in the kitchen and ‘waiting on’.  Making  Sunday lunch in ‘the Hart’  a very relaxed and enjoyable experience.

Charlie and daddy are in charge of ‘the beer’ and ‘the celler’ and are both justly proud of the quality of product served in the bar.   ‘The Hart’ a noted real ale house offers at least four real ales mostly brewed on site in the pubs brewery .

Joan and Alex work hard on the look of ‘the Hart’ trying to make it always feel warm and welcoming and keeping the rest of us clean tidy n happy. Both ‘Landladies’ are the power behind ‘the Hart’.

The most important and as yet un mentioned member of the family is Tessa our English Springer Spaniel.  Tessa  acts as our ‘meeter and greeter’, as the door opens she can be seen tail wagging, padding over to our guests offering her paw of friendship. Tessa has an ever growing band of friends who love her and consider that she is the ‘Heart of the Hart’.
