Lloyds bar £1 coin sign leaves customers baffled

A sign in a Lloyds Bar has left customers baffled this week.

The notice warned locals that the bar would not be accepting the old £1 coin but would give them out as change.

The old “round pound” will stop being legal tender on Sunday October 15, which means legally the Wetherspoons chain has to accept them.

But that wasn’t an option for customers at one chain after a notice warned that they wouldn’t be allowed to use them as tender at the bar.

They do, however, volunteer to donate them to a charity for customers who “do have any they don’t want”.
