The first Proper Pubs will have opened the doors a few minutes ago and welcomed back the Carling and Smooth drinkers into the welcoming bosom of their Public House.
Sadly, it’ll still be a little while till you can stand at the bar or chat to random strangers, as Table Service (ugh !) rules till we’ve sorted out the latest variant aka “The Bolton Problem”.
But it’ll be lovely to be indoors again, admiring the indecisiveness of the amateur drinker.
As before, and before, BE NICE to the staff. They’ve had a terrible year. Don’t moan if your Smooth takes a few minutes to arrive. It’s better for waiting.
I’ll be rushing back, but I won’t be overdoing it this week, for reasons that will become obvious in due course.
Since April 12 I’ve managed 56 pub visits, all but one of them a different boozer, and if the beer is as good inside as out we’re in for a treat.
Line ’em up.
