Britain's first motorway pub opens its doors
LONDON (AFP) - Britain's first motorway pub started serving pints on Tuesday, with opponents warning that drivers risked giving in to temptation.
The Hope and Champion, run by pub chain J D Wetherspoon, is on the M40 motorway linking London and Britain's second city Birmingham.
It is open from 4:00 am to 1:00 am seven days a week, with alcohol served from 9:00 am.
The pub-cum-restaurant located near the town of Beaconsfield, west of London, serves traditional British ale as well as non-alcoholic and hot drinks.
