    The door gets closed at 11.30 during the week and at 12.30 on weekends. Once the door closes its at the barman's discretion really as to how much longer he/she keeps serving.

    EDIT: Don't know why that cross face is above my post, I'm not angry at you. lol.

    If you want late drinks then go drink in your local hotel.
    Night porters do be bored on Sunday nights as there is hardly ever a function on

    And management have fooked off home so the NP is in charge

    I never knew that at all, I thought it was like half 1 or something, I've known country pubs that stay open until 3 or after.

    My god this is so wrong... The barman has no discretion to closing times, it's law. Tonight, pubs are allowed to serve (and music stops at) until 00.30 on 09/04/12 and everyone out by 01.00 on 09/04/12.

    Lock ins are illegal. You cannot be in a licensed premises after closing, however if a pub has a private sitting-room or kitchen off the main pub, alcohol can be served there for free until whenever they want.

    But i do love the odd lock-in.

    I know its against the law but do any bar owners really adhere to it.

    Most would (in cities) as they are responsible if caught, not the owner/bar.
