Have you ever fancied any of your customers?

"We've got a lot of good-looking women in here but I obviously don't do anything about it

- I'm a married man and I'm too much of a gent.

"

Hitchin, Hert s

"I'm a ridiculous gigolo, so if it's got a heartbeat and it's female I'll have a go.

There's most of the hairdressers we supply with wine and the barmaid from the pub opposite. If we find a wine she likes we put it on the bottom shelf."

Thomas Jack

Rock Bottom

Cowbridge, Glamorgan

"One or two, but

only

from afar.

A couple

have fancied me, but I've had to pass on the offers - often people that come in

are the lower end of the market, but you've got to be diplomatic ."

Martin Burns

The Buttery

Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland

"I've never fancied any of my customers and, as far as I know, no-one has fancied me, although I'm going to be watching people in a different way now."

Saj Hussein

Beer Hut, Dukinfield, Cheshire

"Oh yeah, but I would never do anything about it . I'm

married . I don't think anyone has

fancied me .

We're all in our fifties, no young stuff goes on here."

Sue Challinor

Port Wines

Great Sutton, Merseyside

" I've not fancied anyone, but some people have fancied me. I didn't say a lot when they told me

- the chat up lines weren't any good."

Anne Brooks

Rottingdean Wine

Rottingdean, Brighton

"All the time but I've never done anything about it, I

remain frustrated. It drives you to drink !"

David Daykin

The judges met last week to sort out the winners in the independent categories of our 2018 Drinks Retailing Awards. The results are top secret until the awards dinner on February 6 but it’s giving nothing away to report that the overall standard of those that will be revealed in the shortlist of finalists in the January issue of DRN is higher than it’s ever been.
