Guess it comes down to how many twats descend on the place without booking......

Mate of mine is a manager of a pub in Portsmouth, first day back proper from furlough was yesterday....he had someone from the nearby hospital ring up & try to book a space for 40 doctors/nurses!

I'm waiting to see how much of a ball ache going for a pint is going to be before I venture out, especially on the Saturday. I've now been sober for 12 weeks (don't like drinking at home) and I'm busting to go for a pint, however I'm happy to wait till restrictions are lifted more before supping.

Plus, I cut my own hair and I don't drink.

We're so similar, well on this anyway :-) Cut my own hair for 30 years plus and reckon I've averaged about a pint a week since lockdown began. Visiting a pub or restaurant in the next few months doesn't look like an experience I would enjoy so almost certainly keep my powder dry.

Shifted a holiday to Cornwall from June to September - hopefully it might be a little more enjoyable by then but a bit concerned the whole thing will be a crap experience and may not bother in the end.

It will all kick off .

Once the drinking gets underway the rules will be totally undermined and arguments / fights will start.

Hope there is a lot of police presence but even then come the evening it’s going to be bedlam IMHO.

Ive said all along that drunk people don't care for protocols etc(a lot of sober people too). Either open up the pubs properly or don't both if you're serious about preventing the spread of a virus.

Most big spoons pubs during the day mid week are so big they wouldn't need to adjust anything to social distance relative to their afternoon footfall.  I will give it a spin next midweek in the afternoon.   Won't be sampling this weekend.
