    I find that in these instances, the pub puts your card behind the bar - not so easy when paying with a phone though.

    I remember the American Express adverts! You are also right in that many businesses want cash only so as not to attract the attentions of the VAT man, like Arthur Daley.

    Yeah, if you're staying in one pub for a couple of hours then a tab can be convenient and free up the staff to serve the next customer rather than taking a payment after each round. Ideally the pub will give you the choice either way.

    Good news heard today is that Crown Posada should reopen shortly!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement
