The best thing about running a pub is...

The people that you meet, you become friends with the customers and your colleagues.

The worst thing about running a pub is...

The sleep pattern, we have late nights and early morning starts.

The perfect hangover cure is...

I think a glass of milk always works and some spicy food later
