Dublin Bus stops serving busy route due to 'mindless' anti-social behaviour

Dublin Bus stops serving busy route due to 'mindless' anti-social behaviour The 40 bus route, which operates on a route between Charlestown Shopping Centre and Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, was stopped for over an hour due to the behaviour. A spokesperson for Dublin Bus apologised to those affected in a statement, saying: "We wish to advise customers that due to anti-social behaviour route 40 will not serve Neilstown Rd/Fonthill Rd for the next hour. "Nearest stop is Coldcut Road. Normal Service will resume at 11pm. "We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused." Former South Dublin Mayor Mark Ward slammed the behaviour as "mindless" and called on those responsible to stop.

Landlords have been warned to stop serving stale beer if they want to save their pubs from extinction. Ben Wilkinson, the national director of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra), has warned that if drinkers have just one poor experience of a pub they may never return.

Writing in the newly published Good Beer Guide 2020, Mr Wilkinson said: “Perhaps we just have to accept the hard truth that the biggest threat to the pub is the pub itself. Or rather, the perception of the pub.”

Research by Camra last year found that pubs are closing at a rate of 18 a week, with 476 closures in the first six months of the year.

Four out of five people have seen a pub shut down within five miles of their home in the last five year. The hardest hit areas include South East England and the North West. Landlords on the outskirts of major cities are most likely to have shut their doors for the final time.

Threat to Great British boozer

i told last summer how Oldham in Greater Manchester once had 365 premises - but has seen a record 51 closures in the five years and now has just over a hundred.

According to this year's Cask Report, drinkers' perception of poor quality beer is the main reason why they avoid certain pubs - with seven in ten saying they have been served stale or ill-kept beer.

A Marston's beer report also found that for every 100 pints of cask ale served, 10 of those pints are “disappointing”.

But, rather than complain about the beer directly, four in 10 drinkers will avoid that pub in the future - and probably tell their friends to do the same.

Camra's long-standing campaign for better pubs led to the foundation of Cask Marque, a non-profit organisation that accredits 10,000 pubs nationwide.

Man charged £55,000 for 'most expensive beer in history'

Man charged £55,000 for 'most expensive beer in history' A man believes he drank "the most expensive beer in history" after being charged £55,000 for a single ale. Australian cricket journalist Peter Lalor paid more than he bargained for when he ordered a bottle of Deuchars IPA at a Malmaison hotel in Manchester. The drink was supposed to cost £5.50 but when a member of staff came to take the payment from Mr Lalor, something went wrong.

Time called on 'just the usual' in diverse hostelries

The days of limited choice in UK pubs are “long gone,” the head of Camra declared.

Tom Stainer praised the UK beer and pub scene, claiming that businesses are “working harder than ever” to attract punters, writes Katie Grant.

Mr Stainer made the remarks ahead of the publication of the 2020 edition of Camra’s Good Beer Guide.

The handbook, now in its 47th year, suggests that pubs have “diversified their offerings” in an effort to win over new customers. Nearly two-thirds of the pub’s featured in this year’s guide offer evening meals and 65 per cent offer food at lunchtime.

Many of the pubs in the book also offer some kind of community event or activity, such as screening live sports (32 per cent) or providing entertainment (43 per cent).

“Pubs play a crucial role in our communities and social lives, and it’s heartening to see such diversity and a real drive to encourage more people to enjoy a brew,” Mr Stainer said.

"Beer drinking and pub-going is for everyone.”

'One bad pint can put someone off for life'

Mr Wilkinson said: “We know how one bad pint of cask ale can put someone off for life, but perhaps we’re less ready to consider the equivalent risk with pubs.

”You go in one where the welcome is unfriendly, the beer is stale, the tables are sticky and an insufferable bore persists in engaging you in conversation, and maybe staying at home with the TV wins out for evermore.”

Tom Stainer, Camra's chief executive, said: “It is certainly true that one bad experience in a pub can put a consumer off for life - which is incredibly concerning, as more and more pubs close their doors every week.”

The pub industry has blamed a combination of high business rates, cheap supermarket alcohol, the rise of the minimum wage, the smoking ban and changing social habits which have seen more people drinking at home for the decline of the pub.

Office for National Statistics figures earlier this year suggested more than a quarter of Britain’s pubs have closed their doors since the turn of the millennium – with a drop from 52,500 in 2001 to 38,815.

Another nudge to customers that grocery shopping should not include alcohol.
The planned ban on alcohol purchases in return for supermarket loyalty card points is another attempt to "denormalise" drink from regular groceries.
