Eva and I popped into The Bishop, 25-27 Lordship Lane Dulwich, last night for a quick drink before going on for dinner.
The bar is trendy and newly opened, it serves a selection of beers Leffe, Budvar, Scrumpy, Abbotts, Ale Fresco; it also has a reasonable looking food menu.
However, there is one issue that I would like to draw attention to.
They do not serve pints of Leffe.
I ordered a pint and a half of Leffe last night, and was told that they only serve it in half pints.
When I pointed out that the other beers were served in pints, I was told that it was not the case for Leffe.
When I asked why, I was initially told "I don't know" by the barman.
Never daunted by being fobbed off, I made further enquiries; it turns out that they believe that it is only served on the Continent in half pints.
Sorry guys, pretentious nonsense in my view.
If the customer wants a pint, then serve him a pint.
