03 08 14 When 11:30 means 11:00 oclock ... at a Harvester Inn. BH25JF. It clearly states that the amazing breakfast finishes at 11:30 and yet after planning [and that is what my wife does, plan to the last detail, Oh, a Harvester they are in sync with Slimming World we shall go there on Sundays for breakfast or so we thought] After entering the restaurant expecting a warm 'family welcome' we were greeted by a gaggle of wanna bee slimmers of the year and in concert were told before the question was even out of my mouth quote:'we are not seating any further customers for breakfast....at 5 minutes to 11:00 o'clock, we could not believe this well rehearsed response to our request to have a quiet breakfast, so along come Mrs Polly wiping her hands and constantly folding and re-folding the towel into pocket size who then tells us, quote:'last sitting's are at 11:00 o'clock'...remember it was still minutes before that time but it was the blatant lie that sticks in your throat not the breakfast. Should anyone not get why we are so furious,then let me make it clear along this promenade there is one food and beverage after another but all want metal money...i'm on holiday, no extra weight for me thank you Mr Planners, and secondly as I said earlier, my wife planned this mornings dining excursion, mainly because it is so close to where we are staying and we both have fond memories of the original beach cafe that used to open whenever the sun came out and last but not least it's slimming World vouched for, and that is big in a planners life so when we take a chance on the beach Harvester we are keeping our child waiting for breakfast and if that does not work out then we have a gruelling walk to somewhere that does take plastic for food and as i have said that is not on the Prom. .. So thank you for a hot long unpleasant walk with baby grumbling all the way to find something else to eat that takes 21st C money. Are you listening shareholders,this will hit the Investors around 11:00 tomorrow or in Harvesters that could be anytime they wish to make up as the go along. Mr Darby.Wish to comment! No, forget the token. kk.

So it comes down to the share rating and, with a forward PE ratio of only 11 times Numis' earnings forecasts for 2013-14, Mitchells & Butlers has the second lowest multiple in the sector, and well below the average of 14. So investors should get their reward for showing patience with a riskier-than-average investment.........As always dyor and good luck.

The state of the company's pension fund could also be set to improve. Although the fund's deficit (as defined by accounting standards) has nearly doubled year-on-year to £100m, the trend is for deficits to narrow as equity markets recover and interest rates on government bonds rise. If the pension hole closes faster than previously predicted, that could free up some of the £40m-a-year contributions that Mitchells is making to that end. In addition, it would bring a restoration of dividends closer. City analysts expect the resumption of payouts next year (see table), which could boost the share price. The persistent bear point with M&B is that the company has had its share of boardroom strife over the past few years, with big investors - in particular ex-currency trader Joe Lewis - willing to push their weight around. On the bright side, the past year has seen an outbreak of boardroom peace and new chief executive Alistair Darby has been left to run the business without distractions in his first year. Obviously, the debt issue hasn't disappeared, but Mitchells is unlikely to need a re-financing until 2017, and its repayment schedule stretches out to 2030.
