The Magpie, Bishopsgate

Had a very strange pub experience here the other night when it was very busy. Had a tab running and ordered some food. Turned out the barman didn't know the kitchen was closed as the chef wasn't there. No problem with that. Easy mistake but asked to see the boss as we wouldn't have had the last drink otherwise.

Boss comes in looking quite scary. Then apologises for the barman's mistake, refunds the food money, asks if I have a tab, which I do (3 or 4 rounds worth)insists on clearing it himself so no charge. Then asks if we're still looking to eat, which we were. Offers to go over the road to a sister pub, order the same food, which he does and pays for himself, and puts a round of drinks behind the bar, and makes sure we are well looked after. Way beyond the call of duty.

Top bloke. 10/10

Interesting comment from Tricksy. But then he is the manager....

Some people appear to like to have a moan for the sake of it. Talk of a "baffling policy on showing football" being "frankly bizarre" and leaving "a poor taste in the mouth". Absolutely hilarious. Have you picked up the toys thrown out of the pram?

Perhaps a good thing to do would be to ask why. The staff are always friendly and polite and willing to help / explain. Might be be more mature to do that before posting something so 'dramatic'....
