I would say that Youngs taking over needn't be bad news. One of the best pubs in London (to my mind), The Lamb on Lamb's Conduit Street is a Young's pub, particularly lovely for its original interior and unfussy set-up. It's a pub, basically. That was a Young's takeover some years back, I believe, and they didn't mess it up.
I know it seems a shame to lose an independent, but they're a better brewery than most. I've no vested interest, I should add (apart from liking a pint of Young's Ordinary)...
Tend to agree here. Let's suck it and see. Could be worse, could be property developers.
