Nothing shakes a joint up quite like a change of management. Eastwood's newest, latest, and greatest has gone from tears to glory in a very short space of time. As the loyal readership would have heard, not two years ago, this place was suffering. Suffering, in a major way. With a deficit of class that few could tolerate, "The Landmark" was primed and ready to make but one mark on this planet – the most boring establishment known to man. But then? Enter, one new licensee…
Known locally as "Greg", colloquially as "Reginald", and internationally as "The Earl of Eastwood", Mr Barclay has turned The Landmark into what is now subtle, yet beautiful. Within a year or less, the rubbish has been cast aside, whilst the gold has been polished. The Landmark now boasts a lavish indoor arrangement, a brand new smoking area, a famous Chinese restaurant, and an impressive stash of the finest alcohol you could hope for. Once upon a time, visiting The Landmark was but a novelty. Now? It's a necessity.
The evolution of Eastwood's second home reads like the "Friday" trilogy. The first installment was a winner, the second was a disappointing sequel, and then the third did the unthinkable - reviving the magic of the original, and rounding the whole franchise off as one hell of a winning formula! Got three words for you, good sir - Get. Here. NOW.
