    Some of their procedures are at least understandable given they are a small unit. But drink orders by text message? Please tell me this isn’t a widespread thing.

    I think Moby's local has taken a sensible approach, and although it will be interesting to see how they adapt/respond to Tris' point (post #87), based on their FB post that Moby shared (and a prior visit by me to the pub a few years back), I'm sure they and their locals will find a balanced and reasonable solution.

    I feel for all these businesses in the hospitality sector re-opening on or around the 4th, as they'll obviously do their best to adhere to the government's guidelines, but it relies on the good old Great British Public to do the same, which, based on supermarket visits since the start of lockdown, for a large minority, I can't see happening.

    The thing publicans fear most is losing their licence. If people start playing up most sensible guvnors will shut up shop for the day.

    I'd love to know how The Seven Stars will reopen, given that with social engineering it only has space for about four plus staff (and cat).

    It'll also be interesting to see what happens to people who go outside for a fag - will they have to queue up again to get in?

    At least there won't be any barholes blocking proceedings.

    Well they're not going to give away your table just because you've gone for a smoke or to the loo or to take a phone call, and no doubt left your pint, coat, paper or whatever there.

    I wonder what will happen to the on-trend twelve place refectory tables and huge sofas that furnish some pubs; thanks to the new rules I can think of some quite large pubs that could only seat five or six parties. They could double that with normal furniture.

    The Dubliners next to Thornaby station looks dormant. No signs up saying when they are reopening, nothing on social media, and a window in need of repair.

    I suspect it's going to be like Boxing Day where you'll just have to walk around to see where is open.

    Change of plan. The Baum isn't reopening until the 10th!

    Booked a table at The Flyer The Flying Horse instead.

    Auld Shillelagh is about 2 metres wide and not at all long either.

    Walked past Quinns a couple of days ago and it's in a very poor state - just look at the photos I took.
