One of my favourite pubs has buxom wenches who remember what you're  
drinking and bring it to your table, usually just as you were  
contemplating whether to leave or have another pint. They also refused  
tips, had reasonable food, and the jukebox was at a sensible volume.  
Said pub has of course now been bought out by a faceless chain who  
ripped out the good bits and was rather empty when I last wandered past.

So far, I've not been in a pub where the same service was offered by  
half-naked men. Do such places actually exist? (Dodgy sex clubs  
excepted, because they're not pubs.)
