    While I totally applaud his decision (I'd go further than just barring them), I fear that the public (apart from me) won't be on his side.

    While admitting to using my phone as a device to record and rate beers and general ambience, I do find over enthusiastic use offputting.However,there are times and places where an unobtrusive phone is acceptable.

    I would precede barring them for life by smashing their device to bits with a hammer. Don't worry, I've never been a pub landlord and almost certainly never will be! I should add that my main gripe is with phone zombies who you daily see everywhere.

    I take it someone sitting enjoying a pint and reading the paper is to be applauded, but someone enjoying a pint and reading the same content on their phone gets to go to a special place in hell once they've endured medieval torture?

    Looks like it's the latter for me.

    It would appear The Humph is on a bit of a roll at the moment. I've just read on a Yorkshire Pubs Facebook page that he is to introduce poly-carbonate glasses into all Sam Smith's pubs, as a cost cutting exercise. It didn't go down well. An initial Google search didn't bring up any further info, but I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time.

    That would be a step too far.

    I remembered the date shortly afterwards. It could be a case of hook, line and sinker. However, with Mr Humphrey, who knows?

    I realised about 20 minutes after I'd submitted the post! Still wiping the egg off my face. The fact I couldn't find any other mention with a Google search should have set alarm bells ringing. But, as I mentioned, with The Humph just about anything is believable.
