And if, as MSH suggests, out of 45 people, the landlord only sold 4 coffees - it does seem as if there was a puzzlingly large percentage of won'ts or can'ts there. I must admit - if i was called to a practise at 8am, i would have needed more than 4 coffees myself, just to get through it!!

A lot of the time, landlords are 'persuaded' to make venues available, free of charge, on the back of the extra income they will make. If they don't then make that income, they won't think - oh, that was surely a mis-representative sample of people i had there. They will just think 'it's not worth my while doing this'.
