The White Horse in Swinton – which has renamed itself the White Walker in honour of the occasion – has created a space where WiFi is blocked and people who mention spoilers are barred. Theories are not allowed and punters can be safe in the knowledge they 'know nothing, Jon Snow'.
The ‘safe place’ has been created to prevent spoilers as the TV show is available through streaming services from 2am on Monday, ahead of its UK broadcast at 9pm.
Joint-general manager Les Dean said: “We know how devastating it is when you’ve managed to avoid spoilers all day, only to hear about a death from a ‘sort of friend’ on Facebook or Dan in accounts. That’s why we’re offering a safe space for those who need it.”
The pub is also offering a Thrones-themed menu on Monday 28 August ahead of the finale so fans can also enjoy dishes from the show, including Hot Pie’s Beef and Ale Pie, BBQ Dragon Wings and Chicken Tyrion Massala.
'More than just a TV show'
The pub’s other general manager Mike Dean added: “Game of Thrones is more than just a TV show – to many of our guests it has become an integral part of their life, and the reason Mondays are no longer quite so painful, that’s why we’re seeing out the penultimate season in true Game of Thrones style.”
Meanwhile, a Nottingham pub has been given a hamper of exclusive Game of Thrones goodies including items signed by Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) for its four-day bank holiday fundraiser.
The memorabilia was donated to The Punchbowl Inn by local cast hero Joe Dempsie in order to raise money for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
