"Reopening is hard enough without this".
Dublin pub 57 The Headline has shared some of the most frustrating customer 'tricks' for trying to get around the Covid 19 hospitality restrictions.
Booking two time slots in a row, and trying to book a table for a group at the precise time that the kitchen closes are among some of the most frustrating behaviours mentioned in a Twitter thread on the topic:
'Reopening is hard enough without this Can i book for 6pm and 8pm Can i book for a group at 10pm I don't care about @GrouponIreland issues, I'm using a voucher!'

Earlier in the week, the Headline pub tweeted that Groupon were selling vouchers for the business without their permission, confirming that they would not be accepting any Groupon vouchers at the premises.
Groupon has yet to respond to the tweet.
Earlier this week it was announced that Phase 4 of the Government's reopening plan has been pushed out by three weeks, meaning that pubs cannot open on Monday 20 July as originally planned.
Currently, only pubs that are serving 'substantial meals' worth at least €9 can open, and patrons may only stay for 105 minutes at a time.
