The London Burgers and Beers. Is it a pub?

By pink little birdie - 20 June 2012 18

I am currently having a disagreement with an associate and I’m going for the RiotAct Collective to settle it.

Our disagreement is about if The London is a cafe/mainly food restraunt or is a pub?

I think it is a food restauant with beer he thinks it’s a pub.

To bright and the main focus is on the food not the beer, which seems to be secondary to the burgers, there is no mention of pub/club or anything in the name.

I have never heard it called the London Pub before.

He says everyone he know calls it The London Pub. Also it’s owned by a licensee on a publicans licence.

Please discuss…

Here’s the background

I have a dinner group that goes to dinner in civic on Tuesdays where we choose a different restraunt each week (or the same one). The location is announced/discussed on the facebook group.

This week it was The London Burgers and Beer (cnr east row and London cct). I think when it was announced it was called Burgers and Beers on London. Wrong I know but everyone understood where it was. Though this person came in and was a jerk about the name and kept calling it The London Pub.

Tasty and cheap (off pay week/travelling overseas in a week and a bit) and willing to accomodate 7 people without a booking (and unexpected full table service) Win! It’s an awesome place for our group dinners! Service and food last night were excellent.

What’s Your opinion?

Is this just a covert add to get people talking about the London?

Good, I’m not the only one seeing it in that light.

I would have thought that a photo of the interior would be more helpful in determining an opinion than a blurry photo of the sign.
Based on the thin amount of info given (owned by a licensee on a publicans licence) I’d say it was a pub. You don’t go into a restaurant and ask to see the publican do you?

Establishment A:
“And what would sir/madame like to drink with your meal?”

Establishment B:
“My shout! Whadyahavin?”

Piss easy actually…

Anyone that thinks this place is a pub is an imbecile.

ps Johnboy why isn’t there a poll?

Maybe because there is already consensus that it is indeed a restaurant.

No jukebox filled with the greatest hits of the 90’s.
No pickled eggs.
No person trying to get through a crowd carrying 3 pints.
No shifty looking guys that seem to always be on the same bar stool everytime you enter the place.
No pub.

Wow, that guy does sound like a jerk! I’m surprised you could stand to be around him.

It’s most definitely a restaurant, given that most of the space is dedicated to seating and that people only really use the bar to order. Also the fact that it is most definitely somewhere people go for a meal and not just for a drink.

It’s really “The London Beers and Burgers”

I’d say it is more of a restaurant than a pub.
