Neat idea. Can't say it hasn't crossed my mind too but then I'm a fanatic, a radical, a rebel, an extremist and crap at running my business and cannot accept that it's ALL MY FAULT and go quietly with my tail between my legs.

I've seen a couple of examples of this in my limited experience. One of them just around the corner from me, a Punch pub called The Kerfield when it was a pub. Then it became Blakes and lasted about two years. Totally trashed by the outgoing licensee, Robert Blake, shut for a loooong time and re let as Dark Horse which lasted about two years too, Dark Horse chaps left without smashing the f&f - it was closed again for a couple or three months now it's Le Petit Parisien. Just as Dark Horse but with a lick of paint as a makeover. Because it's a tied lease of course they don't have any bieres Francais on tap, small problem possibly for a French bar. I give them two years MAX unless they're on a TAW.
