    It sounds far better to have table service. People who want to rule the roost outside their own home will probably feel aggrieved they can’t do so but that’s tough isn’t it?

    Table service at the moment has its advantages especially for the bar maids, as you haven't got people saying "for f'ucks sake love I was next"

    Good debate this and we haven’t scratched the surface of the ‘card only’, ‘app’ or ‘tolerating’ cash yet. Was in Bristol this time last week, had a meal (booked table) at Mackenzie’s on the waterfront, cash not a problem, walking away after and wanting to call in for a pint we went to The Fisherman’s Arms, or some name like that, went through the track ‘n’ trace procedure then told that it was card only. Decided against this and left to go to O’Neils, where we’d been the previous day, cash payment not an issue. As we left the manager (I presume he had some authority) called us back, asked why we weren’t having a drink in his pub (it was empty in there), we told him that we prefer to pay cash, he said that we hadn’t much chance of that in Bristol at the moment. We put him right and told him we’d paid cash elsewhere, he was quite put out, not with us I might add, he was really polite. But it seemed as though it was dawning on him why his pub was empty when others were chocka. I know others on here differ as we’ve had this debate in the past but, personally, I like to go out with what I’ve got in my wallet and when it’s gone so am I, I think that hovering a card over a machine can result in finances running away with themselves resulting in a rude awakening when next checking your bank balance. All in all I just want to get back to how it was, walk from pub to pub, no booking, if it’s full, move on, pay by whatever method suits the individual, not be press ganged into a certain way. Please God it happens soon or I can see me turning to drink

    Never, ever an issue with decent, experienced bar staff. They work the bar and know who’s next diffusing any dispute. Problem is finding old school ‘proper’ barmaids/men, a lot nowadays just seem to hover by the till and serve whoever’s in arms length. Then again the punter should know his place, I liken it to the barbers, no matter how many are sat in the room you know your turn. (Or is that just me)

    Anyone that’s been to the spoons down the bay knows you order your next drink when your first one arrives

    Simple concept and it’s absolutely brilliant

    No more carrying cash around with massive pockets of metal.

    Re: The ‘New’ Going Out

    I've been out to pubs several times since they reopened this year. I have had no issues at all with table or app service. One afternoon, after work, 6 of us had a table outside one hostelry. It rained a little but the staff were quick to get umbrellas and gazebos erected. While it took a few minutes to receive an order, it probably took no longer than it would if we went to the bar itself. We all left happily pissed.

    I must admit to enjoying not queuing at bars and the tossers who do their best to jump in before you.

    OK i don't want to be an A Hole but can anyone point me in the direction that will tell me that masks work!
    I have an ex work colleague who is at Uni to become a doctor. I asked him should we wear masks and he said that this has been being
    debated since the 90's. Even during an operation there's no proof that a mask was required , he claimed.
    So anyone ?

    Perhaps ask Phil Collins as he was a believer in 'no jackets required'

    I work on the theory that if you can smell a fart through a mask , then it’s not much protection from a coronavirus.

    I have a lunchtime session in my local Wetherspoons with some friends in Shrewsbury and table service means we get served much more quickly. Before when you went to the bar you could get stuck behind a couple of old dears ordering meals and taking hours over it as they decided if they wanted chips or a jacket how they wanted their steaks cooked what sauce they wanted with it etc etc. Used to drive me up the wall. Prefer going to the bar in most pubs but Wetherspoons are always busy so table service has worked out better.

    Wondered into a pub on the beach in Pembrokeshire today, no queue, served at the bar, no app, cash or card. Out by the sea with a pint of Guinness watching the sun go down
