An established pub chain has banned its punters from using mobile phones and iPads across its 300 outlets in a bid to protect 'social conversations'. Pub chain Samuel Smith, owned by 73-year-old Humphrey Smith, has enforced the rule across its establishments and insisted that pub-goers will have to leave its premises to take a call.

In a memo sent out to his managers, Mr Smith described how the 'brewery's policy is not to allow customers mobile phones, laptops or similar inside out pubs'.The notoriously secretive owner of the brewery is also reported to turn up incognito to check up on staff and has long forbidden jukeboxes, slot machines and even televisions at his many establishments.

The memo, first reported by the Manchester Evening News, read: 'The brewery's policy is not to allow customers to use mobile phones, laptops or similar inside our pubs.
