Service with a Smile

On Saturday, witnessed by my good lady, so it must be true, I had some of the best service I've ever had in a pub. And that it was done so effortlessly and naturally, made it so much the better. It wasn't corporate, forced, or scripted. Just properly done.

Where is this gem? Well I can't tell you yet, as I encountered it when I was judging pubs for the Greater Manchester Pub of the Year and I don't want to prejudice anything. The closing date for judging and scoring is up soon, so I'll tell you then.

I'm still pretty chuffed about it, which shows how bloody rare it is.

You build up our interest and then keep us hanging in the air?

You are a tease, TM!

Service with a smile? That's not a "Great British Pub". We demand misery and begrudgement!

CL: I do know that is the stereotype of British pubs, but I don't understand why I don't come across it very often.

I will wait with baited breath...but kudos for highlighting it. So easy to do, so not often done, and as important as the beer in the glass. In fact, maybe more.

Re: trade4target's comment, or rather spam.

It's funny how these advertisers try to make their comments look personal, but never ever succeed!
