Ah, but that's part of the UKs beauty. Scorchio every day would be boring, and mean we wouldn't have a green and pleasant land. I'm all for a short sunshine break in the depths of our dark winters, but in the summer I never leave the UK.

Mind you my last abroad trip was in Rome in Feb, and I came back with a hell of a bad bug, great time though !

That sounds so wrong. Until there’s no restrictions in a pub I won’t be bothering as there’s no real point.

Re: Coronavirus

Giving the pubs a wide berth this coming weekend as we suspect they'll be rammed full of bored and thirsty 20-somethings. Could be a bit like a bad Bournemouth beach day.

However, subsequent weekends are an entirely different matter.

If you wait until then, there may well be no pub to visit! The point is, amongst other points, is to ensure it's still there.

Mrs K and an eBay razor does a great free haircut. She now has a job for life After the initial surge, hairdressers may find they've lost lots of customers permanently.

Re: Coronavirus

We normally go out on a Sunday, but already have plans on the 5th, so we will be booking a table on the 12th.

But at a new pub or new ales or new to me I like to sample them before committing and the silly idea of ordering by app - I don't have a phone.

Re: Coronavirus

A lot of pubs will still have a cash till for those without a phone. So will still be able to pay by card or cash. Most just want to encourage using the app.

Sampling - suspect this won't be happening for a while
Cash - some venues will be card-only, but maybe not all
App - don't think this will be compulsory or that all venues will have one.
