    Confidence is the key. You'll get used to everything - if you screw up, just let the customer know that you're new - it'll be fine.

    Good Luck

    Depends on the pub, go at your own speed tho, dont rush or you will feck up or forget drinks !

    Dont be fazed by all the drinks, most of the time you really only need to know about 5 !!

    Good luck

    Learn the names for drinks!

    Ok so lager and wine and alcopops are easy to remember, but people may ask for Snakebite or Diesel or something and soda rather than water.... it all makes a difference!

    Good luck though.

    (this advice depends on what kind of pub it is though, if it is full of old men then you'll never need to know anything fancy!)

    Hiya. I've been working in a pub for a few months now and it does get a bit confusing but you improve in time. Like bumblebee said just take note of the different names that people give drinks coz thats what confused me.

    Good luck :)
