I agree that the incident has probably been gone into quite thoroughly - but I would just like to mention one thing, which hasn't been commented on - I have to disagree with Georgiansilver and his comments about landlords seeking to make a killing etc ... if this bloke runs a busy pub, it should be remembered that he would have probably been working until round about midnight (probably later) the previous night and have had to get the place cleaned up and presentable ready for business the next day. If he'd agreed to open up at 8am, instead of the usual (say) 11am, that would have meant all that work would have had to be done the night before, rather than in the morning. It's not just a case of opening the doors ... yes, the cleaning has to be done anyway, but the routine would have had to be reorganised to accommodate the early opening.
