Pub have been hit badly by the smoking ban and more effective poolicing of the drink-driving and now drug-driving laws.
Pub owners I have spoken to claim that most of their business is done before 7.00 pm. in the day now.
Pubs are now restaurants and so must be assesse as places which prepare and serve food.
Who is supposed to examine these places where food is prepared?
Do they issue cleanliness licenses?
