Pub smokers blocked pavement

Share this article

I refer to last week’s story on the closure of Frankie’s Bar in Bourtree Place, and I have to say I am pleased that it has closed again.

Since it reopened recently, I have hated walking past it as there is always drinkers standing at the entrance smoking and often blocking the pavement. I have started crossing the road and passing on the other side. I am not alone, other people who have spoken to me feel exactly the same. I think it is awful that we should be compelled to cross the road to pass this bar because of smokers at the entrance who are blocking the pavement. I have to pass the pub daily and feel quite scared.MW
