Series 1, Episode 3
Footfall is down in the John Barleycorn and Andrew enlists the help of Cass to make it look more like an authentic country pub.
Footfall is down in the John Barleycorn and Andrew, who now has a stake in the business, is trying to figure out ways to sex up the pub and bring in a younger crowd. Geoff is keen to help, but Andrew enlists the help of Cass, who, as an artist, has a 'good eye'.
They swap out Jan and Mike for more attractive and younger barstaff, defurb Stephen's pine-heavy refurb and make the John Barleycorn look more like an authentic country pub. But Stephen is furious with Andrew's meddling and insists that the Barleycorn already is an authentic country pub. So when Andrew's improvements appear to bring the 5-star TripAdvisor reviews rolling in, Stephen is suspicious and worries that the John Barleycorn is flying too close to the sun. He soon seems to be proved right.
