With all our pubs due to open on the 20th of July – providing that customers behave themselves – in this podcast we hear from three publicans in Europe about their own experience of re-opening and running their operation in the ‘new normal’.
Tanya Marie Cregan of Temple Bar in the South Tyrol region of Northern Italy joins Dylan Taylor of Tir na nÓg in Aarhus in Denmark’s Jutland Peninsula and John Gulay of O’Casey’s Irish Pub in The Hague, Netherlands, in talking about what they’ve done to prepare their pubs for re-opening in their respective countries, what’s been the hardest thing for them to deal with in ‘the new normal’, what government support was given to them during lockdown and how they see their operations going forward.
Since their responses prove so positive, we close the podcast by asking them for their thoughts should lockdown ever have to be re-introduced there….
Spoiler alert! Our three panelists retain their similarly sunny outlooks to end the podcast on a truly positive note for the licensed trade.
