A pub boss has hit out at “horrible” Foster’s drinkers telling them to “p*** off somewhere else”.
Tim Foster, who shares his name with the budget Aussie lager, said: “There’s some people that just shouldn’t be allowed out.”
The self-styled “head of being awesome” at the Yummy Pub Co spoke out after being overwhelmed during the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
He said: “We’ve seen people that we wouldn’t normally see. Some have been really positive and some have been really negative.”
Mr Foster added: “People were going, ‘Have you got Carling?’ No, we haven’t got a Carling, mate. ‘Foster’s?’ No, we haven’t got Foster’s, sorry. ‘Can I have San Miguel?’
"No. ‘What kind of bloody pub is this?’ It’s a bloody good one actually, p*** off somewhere else.”
Speaking online from the Wiremill Lakeside Pub & Inn, Surrey, he went on: “Obviously the guys in the nightclub arena can’t open so there’s a different type of consumer keen to get out.”
The firm runs six fine dining hostelries across the south of England.
Mr Foster said he hoped a new campaign by Deliveroo would encourage the lager fans to eat at home.
Although the Eat Out to Help Out scheme has come to an end, many boozers are eager to extend the scheme into the next few months.
Whetherspoons has announced it will see prices on a drag of meals and drink reduced from Monday to Wednesday number November 11.
It was also reported that some restaurants may have increased menu prices while cutting the amount of food as a way to cook the books.
HMRC have announced they will be assessing restaurant payment made from the Government during the scheme to check if customers and taxpayers have been duped.
