I've been in and out of Durham a few times the last two weeks. Is it just the Waterhpuse in Durham that suffers the cheap beer who no effect or do other Wetherspoons suffer it? I saw someone so drunk at one of Sunderland's Wetherpoons so blind drunk they fell over every five yards. Consett's Company Row has an apparent daytime reputation too. Down Durham, I witnessed one bloke face-slide along the glass front of the North Road Tesco Express and a different day, a security guard have to ban three drunks from Wetherspoons who were trying to buy /steal bottles of cheap plonk from Tescos. Note each time I was passing and not a Wetherspoons customer (though I was having a pint -only one pint - at the Sunderland one). These are during the day too. I'd heard the tales but didn't think it was that bad. Anyone want to do a bet on how long their livers will last?
