Staff don't tend to be friendly when we pop in there after five a side, usually get a grunt out of them if you're lucky, but it saves driving somewhere else

I have only eaten in their once and it was very nice to be honest, so I have mixed views.

Sandy Pate? Is that a gritty meat spread from Brussels?

No it's a gritty full back from Scotland as I'm sure you very well know. :head ball:

I don't think there's enough room for a air hockey table and I've never seen that Nintendo games machine they put in recently being used. It's become the most expensive pint holder on a match day,
I don't think there's enough room for settees either, and the booths do that purpose.

I remember in its early days the SPB did curry night, burger night etc like Spoons. The food is good quality. I eat in there most Monday's before 5 a side. I do miss my favourites from the old blue menu though such as the cajun fish/chicken.

I'm not sure of the figures but I controversially think they should stop the drink stickers at least on match days. I'm sure they lose out in lost revenue from punters on a match day who are on the ale and would buy a drink anyway plus speed up the service slightly even more.

In general it is a great bar and I think it's fairly busy throughout the week, no less than other town centre or independent pubs during the week though it goes quiet after around 8:30. I do agree it needs more of a brand to appeal to the wider local population who may not know who Sandy Pate is of think the SPB is just a supporters bar on match days.

If the club are reading this and they'd like any rebranding work done for "Patey's Sports Bar" or menu redesigns or other then I'll happily do it for free!

Fair play, hes been over looked a few time when he has stayed loyal.

I hope he is given free reign of actually make it work without being micro managed by people who've never run a pub in their life

You remove the stamps, then I've lost my incentive to have 3 or 4 pints in the SPB on a match day. I imagine I wouldn't be alone with going to somewhere that it's easier and quicker to be served in.
