“Super Saturday” drinker beats the crowds waking up at 5:15 am for the first pint in a pub since the lockout


A drinker who barely slept while waiting impatiently for his first sip of alcohol in a pub after three months of lockdown beat the crowd when he woke up at 5:15 a.m.Martin Sherrell wanted to make the most of “Super Saturday” and had an early evening to prepare for the reopening of bars in England on July 4.

The 63-year-old set his alarm clock at 6 a.m. but woke up 45 minutes before, which means he was one of the first customers to walk through the doors of a Wetherspoons pub.

The caregiver, who was joined by two friends, joked that if it had not rained, he would have camped outside the Berkeley in Bristol.

After arriving at 8 a.m., Martin had breakfast before ordering his first alcoholic drink – a bottle of Magners – just an hour later.

He said, “I had an early night last night in preparation. I set the alarm at 6 a.m. – but I was up at 5:15 a.m.

“I have barely slept since I heard the Prime Minister’s announcement that pubs could open.

“I was joking that I would have camped outside if it didn’t rain.

“My friends and I usually meet two or three times a week, but we haven’t been on a tablespoon since March. We have been drinking there for years. ”

He added, “We were only three and three workers when it opened. I think they are waiting later.

“I’m reasonable about it however. We all are. I am a full time caregiver for my mom. I have a mask with me.

“I had a nice bottle of Magners cider – I like them. I’ll have a few more. “
