Above, left to right: William, Charles, Peter and Simon travelled up from Marlow specifically to visit The Thirsty Bear, having read about it elsewhere. They gave the Robot Pub Group's concept a cautious thumbs-up.
"We think it would be good at sports events," Charles pointed out. "When there's football and things on and you're sitting here with your mates, you can just pour a pint rather than going back and forth to the bar. You wouldn't miss anything."
ZDNet can report that at the time of our visit both the iPads and the beer were fully functional.
