Please remember to order your drinks one at a time as we like to run backwards and forwards, it keeps us fit.
When ordering a round please make sure you don’t know what you are ordering when you arrive at the bar, as we like to stand and wait while you nip back and forth or shout across the room to find out; even though we have been waiting half an hour and may start to moan; it is not your problem.
Once you have received two drinks please take them back to your table and stay for a quick chat before coming back to pay, we’ll still be waiting; we are not going anywhere and would appreciate the rest. ALWAYS order your Guinness last, we really want you to stand there at the bar with all your other drinks while it settles and are particularly pleased when we forget about it and have to be reminded to top it up. NEVER put the money in our hands, we like to pick it up off the bar, especially if it is all in change and in a puddle of beer, and never say please or thank you, it irritates us.
Always wait until you have been told how much your round comes to before ordering crisps, snacks, etc. When requiring ready salted, please ensure you ask for the full range of flavours before asking for plain, it helps us learn our stock.
When buying a pint for Jim or Tom, please don’t ask them what they want, just tell us there name or show us where they are standing because we like to guess and get such a thrill when we get it right. If you arrive at the bar and there is someone waiting before you then shout “I’m before them”. We like to be abused by people who think they have been served out of turn and it is usually our fault. We have the ability to keep track of people as they arrive at the bar, especially on busy nights, so why not use it?
Welcome to our bar!!
