Pint shop are currently building their estate using pointOne’s award winning EPoS technology and have successfully integrated our kitchen screens and Head Office modules alongside Fourth’s food & beverage stock control solution.
Pint Shop's vision is all about creating a place that embraces eating and drinking equally. A place where you feel equally at home having a few beers, a light lunch or a full blown feast. A place where people from all walks of life, rub shoulders with each other.
Congratulations to Pint Shop who have just opened their second new pub in Oxford to complete the collegiate double alongside their pub in Cambridge.
The original ‘Beer Houses’ or ‘Tom and Jerry Shops’ as they became known, are viewed by many as the birth place of today’s pub. At this point in time beer was a rich man’s drink because of its high tax levels. The poor drank gin and lots of it, mostly in illegal gin shops. Then in 1830, in an attempt to reduce public drunkenness, improve the health of the nation and encourage free trade, The Beer Act was passed. The act allowed anyone that paid a small fee to brew beer and sell it in their home, Beer Houses were born. It even allowed a low ABV beer, called Table Beer to be brewed for children, women and servants as the tap water was so unsafe! A new generation of beer drinkers were born.
Pint Shop have installed 6 pointOne EPoS tills across 2 floors in their Oxford pub, along with 5 kitchen screens for the different sections of the kitchen.
