British Pub Unveils £1 “Credit Crunch Lunch”

Dear American pub owners everywhere,

Please, please take a hint from the report below (Ananova):

One resourceful pub landlord has decided to tackle the credit crisis by pricing all the meals on his menu at just £1 – and it’s working.

…customers are flooding in and trade is flourishing, says Tony Rabbits who runs the Four Crosses in Cannock, Staffordshire.

“Three or four months ago we were really struggling, we thought we would have to give it up,” he told Sky News Online.

“Back then we typically had 15 people in for lunch – today I’ve had 300. Tonight there’ll be about 350 people in, whereas four months ago it was 20.


Brilliant! A bonafide soup kitchen, with beer available at the regular price. If someone here does this, I’m in.
