So I have now been to the club...only fair I post my views!
On arrival, as I was giving our names, Alan Wardrop appeared and introduced himself and took us up to the bar...nice.
BUT before we even got there - on the stairs - ooft the heat! Spoke to someone who has been there from start and said he noticed it too coming up the stairs but not usually like that - thank god cos the place was well warm.
Alan told us it had a new layout as he had had the chance of some free tables and chairs. My thoughts - mix the tables up a bit, split them up - in rows like school or a bowling club - another member agreed, he said they were better than the couches but didn't like the row lay out.
Big screen - great - no sound - weird fitba pub, fitba on and no sound???
Bar - staff great, area - hmmm looked a bit sparse and for the love of Hugh Murray get a couple of bottle openers attached to the bar - one girl after the game (when bar full) stoating about trying to find the handheld bottle opener - get it sorted Gus! Prices - £1.50 for a can of juice for the wean - sorry but feckin shocking! I've already said I think the prices should be way lower when you are paying a monthly subscription but I didn't realise it would be £1.50 for a can - that's just not on IMO. £3.30 a bud - I don't do bottles in pubs but didn't fancy the fosters.....got a fosters after the game £3.40 well its 2 buds innit? BUT - its just no that guid is it??????????? GET SOMETHING ELSE ON DRAUGHT!!!!
Overall - I'm sure it will get better as we get to know more people, didn't have much atmosphere but again prob as season goes along. I've not hid the fact I think its overpriced and if it wasn't for the wee man I wouldn't be there and I still stand by that. I really do think the bar prices are wrong for something you are already paying for.
Signing in - again I think every member should be able to sign 2 people in free. Say I said to my pal Darn and his boy to come in for a bit before game - 2 sign ins and 2 cans of coke £9 - why would you?
Suggestion - it has been mentioned that folk signed up but don't use it. Say one week me and the wee man cant go - so bar getting no money from me that week, let me pass it on to someone else to use - they come in and spend and get to try it?
Early days....and im sure it will come good but honestly GET SOMETHING OTHER THAN FECKIN FOSTERS...its just no a guid pint!!!
