Dear Virtual Norwood users,

 

I am working on a research project for the Conservative Group at the Greater London Authority on pub closures in London. As part of this I would like to make a case study of pub/bar usage in a specific area and the Crystal Palace Triangle is ideal because of its range of pubs.

 

If you have a spare few minutes, please could you fill in this survey? (9 questions, mostly multiple choice.)

 

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2QSBBSQ

 

And if you could spread the link to as many Crystal Palace locals as possible that would be really helpful.

 

Many thanks for your time,

 

Peter

I wonder if it will be polarised between the sticky carpets and pork scratchings brigade (no offence Belli!  ;) ) and the newer, gastro pubs......  I am somewhere in the middle I guess, but do insist on a comfy seat away from drafts, clean loos and being able to hear myself and others speak.

Indeed especially as pubs themselves are voting.

Well its not really a vote though is it - more of a survey on what attracts people to pubs?

 

As for publicans, they often choose to go fro a drink in another establishment to get away from the place for a while - maybe some might vote for another place  :)

As soon as I posted vote I knew it was the wrong word to use. I'm interested in what the results will be. I doubt any publican would answer the last question in any way other than that the loss of their pub would have a great effect on them (as it would the whole triangle).

True :)

 

Actually one thing that I think is missing from many pubs these days - especially gastro pubs - is the ability to sit at the bar amongst other locals and get to know them, the staff and the local gossip.  You can't do that as easily if you are funnelled towards small tables, ending up just with the people you came with (not that I don't like the people I go to the pub with!).

Have to agree I'm a bar stool person too but we seems to be slowly pushed to the tables. Still a couple of places on the triangle with decent bar seats. For me staff make a place hence why I have 'defected' from my usual local on the triangle.
