    Happy New Year to everyone, but I'm boycotting 'Spoons after being asked to pay for my beer before they pour it one too many times.

    It is very annoying and I can't believe it's justified. The same goes for them displaying clips where the beer isn't on.

    Happy New Year-let's hope for some really cracking beer-even thunderingly good beer this year.

    A friend of mine spoke to the manager at his local 'Spoons (where he spends both his and my Camra vouchers and normally gets VIP treatment and special offers) after this happened to him - two new members of staff didn't recognise him and thought he was just some tramp off the street. This manager said they'd been told to do it to anyone who seemed a risk of scarpering with the beer without paying. My friend expressed surprise at the thought of anyone actually running off with a pint in his hand, but apparently it has happened.

    The first time it happened to me was in Leominster. The second was in Penrith. The third and last was in London. I spoke to the manager and told him I believed that his staff had been told to identify any scruffy single strangers ordering just a beer and demand money first. He laughed at me, which is not an appropriate way to deal with someone with paranoid delusions, but we'll let that pass. I told him that I was certain it was company policy and that this, the third time it had happened, would be my last ever visit to a 'Spoons. He merely shrugged and walked away.

    Aqualung my friend, don't you start away uneasy. You poor old sod, you see it's only me. I presume that you don't personally resemble the sleeve of the famous Jethro Tull album, or you'd have fallen victim to this policy yourself before now.
