When Gordon last visited The Fenwick Arms, Sunday service was booming and Gordon's brainchild, the 'Campaign for Real Gravy', was in full swing. But times have changed and new competition is threatening The Fenwick's success. The Highwayman, a new gastropub, has opened just up the road. It seems to have stolen over 50% of Brian's customers and a lot of his regulars. With landlord Brian's continual stress and interference in the kitchen, which Gordon believed was one of the main reasons for the pub's inefficiencies, and now the added pressure of new competition, it's no wonder the pub is in trouble. Gordon's not going to like what's happened in his absence.
The Fenwick Arms is open. The pub was sold in 2009 and has changed hands twice since. Brian and Elaine are now at The Ship Inn in Aldborough.
