Square Meal Review of The Thirsty Bear ?

Long waits to order drinks might be a thing of the past if the concept behind The Thirsty Bear, London’s first self-service pub, takes off. The pub boasts beer taps on every table – all controlled by iPads. Customers set up a tab at the bar and are given a card to swipe at any of the tablets dotted around the pub. This activates the beer pumps on their table, as well as an on-screen display showing how much beer is being consumed. Drinkers can also use the iPad to order other drinks and food to their table, control the jukebox and surf the internet. The main bar is also staffed so that walk-ins who can’t get a table can still order a drink; in-the-know locals can escape the geekery in the downstairs snug.

  1. The Thirsty Bear on Stamford Street, just by Waterloo Station, is owned and operated by the Robot Pub Group. It's an iPad-driven pub, and the concept is simple, yet massively effective.... Put your card behind the bar and pick up an iPad swipe card. Choose your table based on the beer pumps available - this includes a range of lagers, but more importantly Meantime Pale Ale...
