Sam has a bright future planned for The Major
Sam Gibbs and her husband Christian took over The Major in Ramsbottom on the 4th of November and before that happened Sam got in touch and I said I’d love to have her on the show.
Not only is The Major a popular local pub, it’s one of the first pubs I ever went to in Ramsbottom and I know lots of the regulars are keen to see what they have planned.
Craft beers, pub food and dog treats
Sam has had a manic first week, she told me she thinks they’ve only had about 25 hours sleep since they took on The Major.
In our chat I found that they are planning on taking it more back to how it used to be at The Major, namely some craft beers and pub food. In addition, dogs are more than welcome, not only that but there are some free treats for dogs too. I know this will sit well with many local canine owners.
They are aiming to have the kitchen open and serving food as early as this coming weekend and looking at getting some more craft beers on the pumps.
I really enjoyed my chat with Sam, and I got a great feeling about the future of The Major, so far she’s ticked many of my own personal boxes.
Please listen to the full interview on the podcast to find out more, including if Sam were a drink, what it would be called and what would be in it 😄
