Name names

Dear Spurtle, 

In times when we are increasingly expect to know where our sausages come from and who writes the books we read, I’m surprised that this trend has not caught up with the High Street, in particular with shops and eateries. 

Take Broughton Street. Yes, we know Crombie’s is a family butchers and L’Escargot Bleu proudly proclaims Fred Berkmilller on its website. But who owns the Cask and Barrel,  the newly refurbished Broughton and the dear old Barony to name but three?

So come on. Proprietors, tell us who you are or linger under suspicion that you are a front for money laundering or owned by a gangland boss.
