Wetherspoon's in Westhoughton had a full 'beer garden' at the rear AND about twenty people queueing at the front!

Why?

The Boars Head is rammed, Alberts in Standish is busy but not as bad as I thought it would be. One or two places not open at all. I think we'll leave it until the novelty wears off.

I'll leave all of it, especially the eating and drinking outside. Not that desperate for a drink and even less desperate to eat food that's going to be cold within a few minutes of being served with it.
As for shopping, I'll leave that for a week or so until shops are less manic and no queues.

crazy times , you snatch someone's enjoyment and some will adjust and others will not adapt as easily, We have all reached a bend in our lives, some will crash , some will slow down and negotiate it, others never made it this far ,

I can't understand the desperation of the people who where waiting for the clock to tick past midnight to drink their first pint outside in freezing conditions. Madness.

I think a lot of them do it to take a picture of themselves so they can put it on social media and become instant overnight"stars".
Brainless duckheads!

Heard this Morning the police were called to the Boars Head at 21:00 ( ish ) to reports of fighting. Apparently it was shut down. Not good, day 1 and its kicked off already. As I said earlier, we'll wait until the novelty has worn off.

What i cannot get my head around with all this ballyhoo about gettingto the pub to have the first pint for ages is this ! HAVE these idiots not been able to buy beer /wine from off-licences /asda etc it's not as if they had been deprived of alcohol for the last 3/4 months is it??? It makes me think we must be a nation of alcoholics just behave with yourselves its not the end of the world just yet ... GB.

Plenty people have friends they have known for years simply from going in the pub. I know loads of folk through meeting in pubs and clubs in the past and this friendship as lasted. Not all people go to the pub just to consume ale!

Stella lager must think this is the good old USA. They are advertising buy a drink and give the bar staff a ONE POUND tipAle is dear enough without being expected to give a £1 tip. People tip at thier discetion in the main in this country.

Stella are giving the £1 tip, not the customer.

Angelwood I have read about the brewery giving up to £1/2 million pounds to pubs that have signed up but the advert looks like it is the customer who is putting the tip into a jar not the bar person
