Yes I would defo agree with that! Last Saturday me and my partner called into the Piper after having a few hours around Wicksteed Park (which was the busiest I've probably ever seen it, crazy golf was crazy busy and other rides which were open were too especially the train which is running at 50% capacity) We had one drink and were temped to have another, was daytime so was warm to sit outside so had 2.Does anyone else find that compulsory table service means one tends to eat/drink more?
A good waiter/waitress will spot when you've finished, come over and ask if you'd like anything else. Ordering by app is much easier than getting up and going to the bar.
Talking of apps, I've accumulated loads over the last year or so. I wish there was just one that every hospitality business used!
On Saturday we went just to one pub and was offered another round but was too cold so went home, was like 2200hrs so getting very cold by then! Looking forward to opening properly.
Due to the awful weather yesterday I doubt few were around and many presumably had to close due to the heavy rain and wind, my nephew was going out for his first ever pint but didn't in the end, he was 18 on 23rd Dec. He'll try again Saturday.
