The Meeting Place

New research sponsored by one of the main coffee chains suggests coffee shops are now the preferred meeting place. In a survey of 1,000 customers 72% of respondents indicated that they prefer to chat in coffee shops rather than pubs.

What is the point of this research apart from another cheap snipe at the pub ?

I am sure at least 72% of pub goers would say the pub is the favourite meeting place.

The same would be true for those who visit the old people's centre on a Friday for lunch and a chat.

Don't some large breweries/pubco's own some of the coffee chains?

What about a microbrewery also running a coffee shop?

Dark Star? Expresso?
