There is already a pub near J24 call the Compass Inn. Last I heard they won't sell up (to J24) so are being forced out this way?

Surely if J24 think a pub is a viable option they should be working with the Compass Inn and making it more accessible from the J24 building at the rear, Surely a large Traditional Pub would be better suited to the site especially when it's already there!! Whoever gave the go ahead needs their head read!!

So why can there not be 2 Pubs, then it is up to the individual, as to which you frequent. There is now only one other in the Village of N. Petherton since the Swan Closed its doors. Healthy Competition, is good for business, some of the stupid comments already made above, are as usual, making allegations of backhanders, and wrongdoing, total
****, unfounded and unworthy to say any more, apart from Grow Up....

Of course there is the Globe, further in the Village, but I was talking of the Pubs on the A38 thro Pethy.
I can not remember there being a rule of only one Pub on a stretch of road, if that was the case we would be closing 30- 40 in Bridgwater. There is however a rule that if you have the last Pub in a Village, it cannot be changed to residential use, it may close but must remain a possible Licensed Premises.

Correct me if wrong but the Compass I thought was a local chain free pub which is what is needed. It has a menu which has something rather strange home cooked. Marstons is just another chain pub like so many in Bridgwater, heat up Microwave cheapo stuff tastes the same no matter which Pub in the Country you go to. Not everyone wants a ball pit in a pub and kids running around with a Brewster Bear. Its about keeping things local and variety. Time people stood up to these so called chain pubs, that put local home cooked food off the menu.

Blue Owl one of the best places to eat in North Petherton is actually hidden Clavelshay Barn its not directly on the A38 neither is the Globe. North Petherton still has the Lamb, Walnut Tree, Maypole isn't far away and neither is Boat and Anchor the other side. There is enough there within less than 3 or so I don't see why we need another one just about 5 seconds from the door.

What utter tosh, to say that,"healthy competition, is good for business".
In this case, Marstons are one of the countrys largest brewers, and will be selling their ales at half the price that the Compass Inn can, So the Compass will be forced to close. No competition at all.

I agree with frags, There are some truly nice places to have a meal and a pint in and around Pethy and and Marstons is a national chain who would give a monkey about a local pub giving quality service and home cooked meals, their ideal is to serve up cheap meals at the lowest price possible, My wife and I would rather go to a traditional pub with proper food that some money grabbing low quality establishment such as Marstons, Too many local pubs are being priced out by the big chains and killing off the smaller independant retailers.

I take your points, and yes I know of the other eateries, and Public Houses you mention, personally, I would'nt give the Compass Inn the Time of day, I drive past there to go into Pethy, or come back to Bridgwater. The Compass inn is as far as I know, only a Managed House??. Part of a chain of Breweries, or suchlike.
The Landlord, does not know what customer service is, if it jumped up and bit him on the Backside. I say this from experience, having been there previously, and enjoyed it. But the last time I went was 18 months ago, never again ,unless it changed hands, but that's me, so I go elsewhere that suits.
I know that if I was coming thro Pethy with my Two Grandchildren , aged 5 & 2 where they would be happy playing, in a modern Marston's Pub, so there it is Choice.
Those who want to frequent the Compassdo so, for me the food and ambience @ the Lamb in the Village is in my mind better.
With all the extra, trade with the EDF Development, to be announced tomorrow ( Expected Tuesday). Next they will be saying the proposed Hotel on the Opp Corner to Stockwell Village Housing, will take trade from the Compass Inn. If he was to pull his Pubs reputation up a few notches, he need not worry about lost potential business, it will come to him any way.

Blueowl I have been in the Compass about 3 times this year and about 4 times last year. I have not experienced a bad meal or bad attitude from any staff. I think you should try it again and give it another try! Yep we all have opinions I for one with a bunch of adults that range as old as 89 would not want a place that is crawling with kids that are 5 and 2. That is why there is burger king at the Services it caters great for kids. Plus you have Quantock Gateway, Brewsters and dozens like that in Bridgwater already and Taunton.

So with my family we choose places the exact opposite. The trouble with the child friendly place is the food is awful you just as well make friends with Mr Sanyo, Mr Toshiba as stick in a microwave pre-packed **** is not what older adults want.

The problem is more traditional pubs are being lost to this chain thing and that is sad, it seems to the outskirts of Towns that keep the tradition of a true pub going, which is why Bridgwater itself has so many cheap 2 for 1 meal type places for £10. North Petherton was a lot better before before all the extra houses, I remember the George Inn Pub as well grew up and use to hang out there as well and the Swan Inn yep it lost out to a Tesco as well as it wasn't used as a local pub. So much for healthy competition it couldn't pay for itself and had to close which is what is going to keep happening unless people like myself visit and keep old local Inn's running.

I use to be a waitress at the Compass and Maypole Inn when I was 14-16 all those years ago, for extra pocket money and know only too well the history of these places way before the likes of Brewsters were a twinkle in some far off planet. What a shame things move forwards sometimes!

The Lamb is fine but parking is not so fine on the main road which is another issue.

I had full Planning permission for change of use, and spent a large amount of money in buying Equipment etc, the advice from him was to pullout,
As the bank, had changed it criteria on lendings. It was to be a Project, that would have meant spending £240k for the Old Thompson's Building, with a further £150 K to refurbish it, to comply with Planning Regs.

Shame Marston's didn't come forward to run the proposed pub in Stockmoor which is now likely to be 14 houses.

A pub by the new Co Op would have been ideal and surely there would have been enough Patrons from Stockmoor and Wills Road areas.

Compass is an ok pub, nothing great but not bad either. I think it is probably owned by one of the big pub chains like Enterprise or Punch Taverns etc. Definitely not a freehouse.

I rate it more highly than the Boat and Anchor. That pub could be made so much more, brilliant canalside location but not enough goes into the ales or the food for my liking.

My pub of choice since it re-opened is The Fountain, always a choice of 4 well kept ales, constantly changing ale choice and friendly and considerate landlord and landlady. Shame about some of the clientel and I don't think they do food.

Don't use a thesaurus as that will only give you the synonyms and antonyms of words - you need to use your trusty old dictionary to find the meanings. Anyway, I've saved you the trouble:

As you will see, I was being complimentary - which I'm sure the high class cheese and pineapple chunks would have been on your bistro bar.

Come on Tuesdayruby, do not join the rest like a sheep, following the flock, with Iain dribble, add your input into the Pub debate, what is your views on Marston's, and the Compass Inn, as they say will be forced out of business.
In any retail / personal Services industry, you must be able to compete and offer better than your competitors, so having, said that the Compass Inn Landlord, is part of chain of Breweries itself, so therefore is'nt a sole Independant Freehouse Landlord, as was first stated. Competition, is the key, and if you are not able to adapt, or adopt new working practices, then Get out of the Business, I'm sure the Brewery will find instantly some one to manage this well positioned Pub, J24 on A38 easy Motorway Access.

I think I'd rather sound like the rest of the sheep than sound like you, Blue Owl. Since you've asked for my opinion here it is.

I do not like 2 meals for a tenner. I do not like ball pits next to my table, shall I go on? Not everything in life revolves around money, somethings revolve around enjoyment.

Quite what remains open to "debate" on this issue is beyond me - the planning permission has been granted and the pub is going to be built. Personally, I can't conceive of anything less deserving of my custom than another charmless, Identikit chain pub/indoor play area serving inedible food and overpriced supermarket lager - but my own opinion cannot prevent the construction of another Marstons premises, and nor should it.

Personally, I can't conceive of anything less deserving of my custom than another charmless, Identikit chain pub/indoor play area serving inedible food and overpriced supermarket lager - but my own opinion cannot prevent the construction of another Marstons premises, and nor should it.

Dr B,

I think we should all turn up at the Fowls nest where undoubtedly we will be greeted with a funny handshake and an expertly cooked steak.

The opulent surroundings will be complimented by jovial and witty repartee and tales of long hot summers spent in an open top Jag whilst winding through the Greek countryside.

Personally I think having to look at the lifesize mural of Maggie, tastefully
hand painted on the well stocked library wall,while we sip our fine after dinner brandy is a little off putting, but then each to their own.

On second thoughts, maybe i'll stick to
pot noodles and natch for one by candlelight under my tarpaulin - much more enjoyable and a far more agreeable host

That can or do cook a T Bone or Rib eye steak as good as I do. So we tend to dine in, couple Bottles of Good Aged Red wine. No problem with Drink Driving, and I know the provenance of the Beef, and the Wine, no Horse meat in my House, not that I Hav'nt eaten it b4. Well hung, it's lean and Tasty.

Well well well, we are a little heated on here arent we....Guinea Fowl...can you not control your temper?! We can almost see you leave your chair as you read the posts...although you keep coming back, so you must either love the attention or you are in your element smack in the middle of a good arguement...my guess is the latter! Still...the moronic insults are amusing and I for one think a couple of the 'imbeciles' making the comments are not as daft as you have been duly lead to believe...who is the daft one?!? ;)

Well, just wait til you post something that the posters disagree with ,they will not, write posting sensible alternative views , they will attack you with personal insults, then see how you respond, perhaps you are of the ' turn the other cheek' brigade,
Well sorry , I was brought up to stand for what you believe in and fight your corner, (metaphorically ) speaking.
I just love a good debate, me I'm up for it, but when the posts, turn to insults, well then I clearly have won the discussion.
Try looking at the content of what I post, and respond to that, not throw insults. As I treat them with the contempt they deserve. It's quite amusing to read some of the posts, better than watching the adverts in between the programme.

Well, Mr Owl, I don't think I've ever met anyone quite so defensive or aggressive as you. You could start a fight in an empty room.
See there you go, judging. I Hav'nt had or started a fight since, aged 11 @ with my best mate then over, guess what a Girlfriend, we both fancied. All forgotten 10 minutes after.
I learnt years ago, that you can achieve more by discussing differences of opinion, but, if your opponents start to err from the Topic, or to throw insults instead of reasoned argument.
Then they have lost !! But, of course, I am always wrong, as I am Independant, in thought, do not follow the sheep, have my own views, and am willing to defend them, you assume wrongly, that when I post, I am angry, and ready for a fight,! In fact, if you really knew me, I have the joy in playing Devils Advocate, so as to actually try to draw out from my critics their real thoughts.
So when, others Post, Who is this Fool, Blue Tit, Guinea Fowl, Barn Owl,
blue-Osterich, and the other Slurs and supposed put downs.
It Does'nt Work!
Just stay on subject, respond to the points made, and I will give imput, if I can add to the debate. perhaps a few of the Idiots who post Crap, can do the same........Tooo Much to Expect I Suppose, Well So Mote It Be !!!!
Now, my critics will respond, shall I sit in a Darkened room!! With a Good Bottle of Red.!!
