It has occurred to us that there are certain pubs and bars we don’t like because they’re often too busy. Unfair, really, but if they’re not nice to be in, they’re not nice to be in.
Is there anything management can do about this? One-in-one-out would be to officious a response.
Or do we need to make like the Spanish and accept that being squashed together and spending fifteen minutes getting served is what makes a good atmosphere?
How busy is too busy? We think a pub where you have to wait ten minutes for a table has just the right level of buzz.
