Last knockings visit until close. Does it encourage irresponsible drinking to serve customers up to midnight at the counter and by app and then immediately go round all tables saying pub is closed you must leave?

Last knockings visit until close. All lights out on the bar-back fittings due to a fault made for a dark bar area. A rare relaxed kick out procedure here tonight.

Last knockings visit until close. Who knows what beers were on or off with pumpclips at half cock and pump handles pulled full back and left there.

Last knocking visit until close. Usual Monday night nonsense of touting plastic glasses round to urge get out soon, and as usual refused it.

Last knockings visit until close. "Sorry no real ales tonight. We have run out and there will be none on until tomorrow". YET all pumpclips still displayed, not removed or turned round. Monday Club priced Draught Guinness was the distress purchase. Then hassle from a floor walker trying untimely early eviction for everyone, justified by "staff want to get home".

Last knockings visit until close. Strange habit of pulling back pump handles towards staff (and leaving them in that position) to denote ales not available. Limited range tonight indeed.
