If it was me I'd go full on sports bar as we have no bar like this in town and cater for Sunday lunches in the Kevin Bird suite.
i'd personally go for point 3, but whatever the powers that be decide we'll try support it. Hopefully, there is an area for us to enjoy a drink after footy in the week.
Option 1 for me.
Unfortunately the cheapness of Hasaloans build makes it highly unlikely that Sandy's is ever going to be accepted as a destination eatery. My wife obviously knows my love of the Stags and my desire to spend my money there. For this she will accept going there for a nice value for money meal, however, for something a bit more special it's a non starter.
With that in mind, option 3 is to me what we have now, a mish mash of everything, and I think we all agree it's time for the bar to kick on.
If option 2 was to be chosen, it would need to be done properly. That would mean plenty of TV's with the capability to show multiple events on any chosen TV.
The town doesn't have a decent Sports Bar, and whilst money is being spent to refurbish it why not try the Sports Bar idea. The only extra cost is a few TV's and the setting up of the multiplayer. Come the summer you will have to be able to show the money league, the ashes, golf, formula 1etc. all at the same time.
I know it's not my money to say "the only extra cost", but it must be worth a try.
