Rural pub adds second wine

A RURAL pub has doubled its wine list by adding a second option.

Alongside ‘white’, patrons will now have the choice of ‘red’.

Landlord Wayne Hayes confirmed the move came at the request of a new patron he hoped would become a regular. He speculated that the expanded offering may also drive foot traffic and attract more passing custom.

Hayes said: “It’s time we moved into the 21st century and admitted there’s nothing weird about wine, or indeed anything else from France. If people want to drink it, that doesn’t automatically mean they’re sinister.”

Asked about a marketing strategy, Hayes said: “I’ll probably write the price on a fluorescent bit of cardboard cut into the shape of a star and stick it somewhere nobody can read it.”
