Laurel Pub company upset journalists when it cancelled a pub crawl, technically termed an “evening of site visits”.

Gadfly, in Financial Mail on Sunday, says a pub company that cannot organise a pub crawl ranks alongside not being able to organise “an alcoholic social event in a brewery”.

However, Laurel has redeemed itself by rescheduling with an invitation to its re-opened The Brewmaster, in the West End of London.
