I’m just wondering if this is the case? I’m not trying to slag anywhere, and I’m sorry if it comes off like that.
On Saturday, I went to the Tavern to meet some friends, eat some St Patrick’s Day buffet, and watch the Ireland rugby game against Italy, which was hopefully going to win us the Six Nations championship (Ireland’s most important game for several years). You would think that since it was St Paddy’s day (which the Tavern-Premier was promoting), and since this was such an important game for Ireland, it would be on at least ONE of the 50 or so screen they have there, but no, I had to ask permission for it to be put on one screen in the corner. Don’t get me wrong, the staff were happy enough to put it on when I asked. I was just dissappointed that ONE SINGLE football match (Man U) was on EVERY screen in the whole place, bar one down the back, where someone had obviously asked to see the cricket. Seriously, what is the point of having 50 screens and showing the same game on all of them?
I turned down an invitation to watch the rugby at the Brass Monkey. I won’t make that mistake again.
If you like football (especially Man U), then I’m sure you’ll have a great time at the Tavern. By all means go. The buffet was great, btw.
