I went to the pub last night!
Normally that would not be worth saying but it feels novel now.

Jolly enjoyable it was too, if a little formal as it has to be planned.

Booked a table the day before, arrived and got checked in, chose a table with nice comfy chairs and had a couple of pints of London Pride.

Quite a novelty.

Went to the Ship Inn at Langstone last week, really wanted a pint of HSB to be told 'they haven't started brewing it yet', so had to settle for a London Pride. Still enjoyable

GJT - You are brave. Inside - near to the asymptomatic person not wearing a mask properly or not at all. The glass you drank from is inherently aseptic but was it washed & handled correctly before you saw it?

I know it sounds like I have paranoia but all these little things have there outcome. And yes I am a mardy arse too & drink at home!

Brave?????

I've been to 6 pubs (2 of them twice) and a private members club (twice) since they reopened. In all cases the management have planned for reopening and put sensible measures in place. I was outdoors on 5 occasions, the other 3 being visits to venues with no outdoor area. 

Usually there is no need to book in this part of the world due to success of Project Fear.

Geoff, what I observed appeared to be well ordered. Things were disciplined and controlled. 

Was it perfection?  I can not tell. 
I try to exercise some caution, I certainly leave others as much space as I can and others around here do the same. 
I spend a lot of time in fresh air. 
I cover my mouth and nostrils when in any indoor space which is not my or a friend's home (our little "bubble").

 

No guarantee this will all work, sadly.

I agree with Geoff & Tazio, before the lock down I could be found in the snug of my local at 17.30 2 or 3 evenings a week but not now,  too risky. We are watching the data closely but I cannot see me venturing into pubs or restaurants this side of Christmas.

As for supporting the industry, there are many industries that need our support but safety, good health and controlling this terrible virus should be our priority, everyone has a part to play.

We've supported many restaurants during the lockdown here in Canada, just via contactless delivery to the doorstep. Most restaurants that strove to find a way to survive had signed on to a delivery service by the end of April.
