What a wonderful thing to do. Well done you, the owner and the lovely staff. I'll make sure to visit before Christmas.
No one should have to spend Christmas alone.

Great idea,I'll send the wife.
Or they might like to be with cherry people and not all alone
Think the idea is they become cheery and well lubricated!
Nowt wrong with being on your own Christmas day.
Suits me fine.
Not everybody does so deals like this are great.
But please don't think everybody who is on their own at Christmas is sad and lonely.

Ok, yes, well done, but I would think the last thing a person who was alone at Christmas would want to see was a pub full of cheery, well lubricated people

Details on 12 Nov entry on their Facebook , for Christmas Day.
Amazing
This is such a great idea. Something similar going on in Leicester for the homeless and elderly facebook.com/eve…=ia
I love this sort of thing . What a lovely idea . The thought of being alone at a together time makes me sad . Makes me sad to think that many are alone at Christmas and many living rough and nowhere to turn to . Shouldn't be this way nowadays . More needs to be done for those in big need!

oh yes paul raymond it a very thoughtful man

We'll all go as a family but separate at the entrance, reconvene in the pub shortly after ordering dinner
You would be surprised how many singles there are and I'm not being prejudiced here but I don't mean the Africans coming over or other immigrants who don't celebrate Christmas but good on all you folk that do such a good deed and spend time away from your own family, this is true Christmas and what it's about.
I am going to book a table for 10

forget the wife and kids, I'm in!

Good afternoon.

I have read all of your comments/postings,etc.

At the End of The Day, We are All Human Beings!

Colour, Creed, Race, Religion, Sexual Preferences etc. etc.

What Difference?

We ALL Came Out Of The Same Hole!

I Highly Commend the Pub in Wimbledon for being so Kind and Generous.

That's what Christmas is all about!

Kind regards.

I think the point of this offer is to not discriminate. You miss the point because rather than seeing our planet as our planet you see your immediate environment as yours and the rest as someone else's, until you want it. Thomas Went About Twice.

Take that as read.
This pub used to be my local and is where I met my fiancé (so we frequent it a lot). It's got a great atmosphere and the staff are friendly.

If it ever used to be a gay venue, it hasn't been for at least 10yrs. It's packed with locals and visitors alike, only a stone's throw from the station and it's roof terrace had a makeover at the beginning of last year (and also has a Burger Shack to boot).

Their offer is a lovely thing to do at a time of year when many singles don't have an alternative and don't wish to force themselves on friends (been in that situation myself). They did this last year too when they generally get so much business that they don't have to advertise.

A generous offer from a fine venue. Much heat!

I agree, although it's always a time to be together.
Make sure every homeless & drunk in London know. Drink them dry!

So that's what the previous posters meant by "well lubricated"?
