They are hoping to encourage customers to spend quality time with each other when enjoying meals instead of being distracted by social media and games on the phone. 

They are also hoping the initiative will also allow for a calmer environment in their venue and stop customers from getting annoyed at listening to other people talking on their phones.

According to the pub, a 'No Phone Zone' is being tested out until the end of the month.
