One observes many things at a pub and as a public service I will share a lesson in how to be asked to leave The 3 Brewers. Last time I was at The 3 Brewers I noticed the individual sitting beside me had returned with a small plate of food. It seemed odd that no one had run it to him but I carried on.
Soon after a manager asked if he could have a word and they stepped away. It turns out there was a party booked, as often there is, and he had taken a plate and helped himself. I found it hilarious and I suppose there is a logic to it. There was all sorts of food left over but the fact is the party organisers pay twenty five or thirty dollars a person so one should not need to be told it is not on to step in and take a plate.
