Slaughtered Lamb Closed Down - Message That Was Placed On Facebook.
We can confirm that the refurb. to the lamb has stopped and that an offer
from a very big English name has being made to buy the pub. After great thought from the owners of the lamb the offer has
being accepted and is going through the process.
owners of The Slaughtered Lamb would like to thank all the people of Swords and the surrounding area for their support over
the past 12 years. We wish the pub every success trading under it's new name.
If this pub gets sold to wetherspoons here's a few things that they do a bit different than
Irish pubs. For a start they will be much cheaper than any other pub in the town. They do serve food and it's the best of
grub and not too expensive. The bars are usually staffed by young women who serve at a snail's pace compared to the service
you'd be used to in Ireland and that's because they never served their time as bar women. The bar trade doesn't seem
to be recognised in Britain as being a ''Trade''. But I'm sure when wetherspoons do enter the Irish pub trade they'll have
to employ ''Real'' bar staff as the Irish won't put up with young one's wandering around like headless chickens. That's
my own personal experience from being in wetherspoons pubs in England.
They start serving food early in the mornings, something the Irish don't generally do. Wetherspoon's are one of the
only pubs that serve a breakfast. They also stay open late and serve food until 11pm. Revenue is boosted by gaming machines
in most of their pubs, an example is you'll see poker machines scattered around the pub beside each pillar. Every table has
a number embedded into the wood. All their pubs are large open plan which makes The Slaughtered Lamb an ideal premises for
a Wetherspoon pub.
