A pub in Wrexham is offering a 25% discount to those that lock away their phones while they eat as part of its ‘Mobile-Free Mondays’ campaign.
The Fat Boar pub wants to encourage its customers to spend less time staring at their mobiles and more time actually talking to each other.

Customers will receive a 25% discount as part of a trial period of Mobile-Free Mondays.

Staff will come round with a cash box and invite punters to lock away their phones. The boxes will remain on the table, but staff will keep the keys to ensure there’s no cheating.

Announcing the scheme in a Facebook post, the pub explained the rules: “1. Hand us your mobile when you sit in our restaurant.
“2. Not have the phone returned until you pay your bill.
“3. Book in advance.
“4. Talk, chat & enjoy your evening with no distraction!”
