Cash is King

Shrimpy’s: A ridiculous restaurant that refuses to take cash

 

Shrimpy’s on London’s Regent’s Canal has become the first cashless restaurant in the UK and whilst we have no objection to people using apps and cards to pay for their purchases, banning payment with real, solid money is just ridiculous.

 

Cash should remain King
Cash should remain King

 

The restaurant’s co-founder, Pablo Flack, told the Evening Standard’s Susannah Butter:

 

“Soon people will view cash like they look at a cheque book now — it’s as if someone’s just pulled a Betamax video out of their pocket”.

 

Flack is entitled to his view just as much as the next man but in our view, he is wrong. Cash, to us, will always be King.

    1. Cash still remains the best method to take a bribe or cheat the tax man. I suggest that they watch some old Al Capone or Dillinger movies. Even Bonnie and Clyde stole in hard cash. Perhaps Netflix can help, or do they also demand payment by card? I think the politicians at least get it…….
