    Baby related stuff. Got to the Pub “Two pints of Heineken please” “Sure, £11.20”

    What did I miss?

    That Heineken is shite and many pubs are way less than £5 a pint.

    You should hear what they say about you.

    tthew – A simple sign “The dead bodies are the arseholes who hogged the bar area making it harder to get a drink” would suffice, I am sure you would attract an appreciative clientele.

    Yep I can’t stand (ha ha) barstools either, and having done a stint in a pub as a student the bar staff hate them as well, not least because they attract the biggest ***heads and you don’t want to have to be humouring them all night. the reason they sit at them is because they don’t want to sit at a table on their own (because they are obnoxious *heads ergo billy no-mates)

    I’ve noticed that people have started to queue in pubs which I kind of like because it’s polite but the fine art of fast serve in a busy pub is a life skill : )

    I was getting angry at beer prices last night (over £5 for a pint in Whitefield!) but then I realised I’m probably getting old still expecting beer to be sub3quid – the Goats Gate can’t reopen soon enough

    We had a new pub open up a couple of years ago and everybody just started queuing to get served. It works brilliantly but nobody does it in any other local pub which I find odd.

    In N America, you get used to everywhere doing table service – to get served you have to sit down. Which then makes it massively confusing when you go back to Europe and can’t work out “do we have to go to the bar to get served, or sit at a table?”

    Back in the day I was refused entry to a abar “no earrings mate.”
    So I took it out and put it in my wallet. He looked a bit confoozed
    and then he said “no desert boots.” I gave up.

    jeez there’s some grumpy anti-barstoolists in here tonight!

    FWIW the bar was completely empty and the barmaid was sitting in the window seats herself.

    And not having stools at the bar did not help prevent the later arrival of the “biggest ***head” who made himself at home sprawled over the bar for support so he could better yabber away drearily.

    Are you paying to get drunk or are you paying to enjoy yourself in a nice venue with friends (or friendly strangers)?

    Why can’t you do both ? I often do 🍻🍻

    In That London a mate and I went to see some music in a venue which did good (although expensive of course) ale.

    Went to the bar for a pint: sorry sir, no pints once the band has started. Just shorts, or of course a 330ml tin of ubercraft hipster IPA from which you’ll struggle to see change from a tenner.

    Pretentious bar stewards.

    What gig venue serves craft beer rather than bud/Heineken/etc?!

    A good one.

    Pub in Stockport has a no swearing policy. It’s a straight red too. Out you go.
    This may seem like terrible business sense for a pub but after a few hours in there it can be quite fun.

    This happens at one of my locals, but it looks kind of odd when there’s also a huge expanse of empty bar.

    Queuing is not efficient. It’s not a good use of space. At a bar – sacrilegious!
