Offer diet/sugar free drinks at stags and the bridge.

Anonymous submitted on

Stags do not offer diet/slimline mixer options, no diet lemondade, coke or tonic. I have type 1 diabetes and drinking sugar free drinks prevents from blood sugars from spiking, making my life easier and less dangerous. I always drink gin and tonic but because Stags and the Bridge don't offer sugar free mixers, I have to drink gin and soda - not the most exciting or enjoyable drink! There are also other dietary or lifestyle preferences that require sugar free drinks options. I feel like making sugarfree drinks an option would be a small change that is relatively easy to implement, but would have a significant impact on my life and others who also require sugarfree options. Diet drinsk options in the form of bottle/cans or on tap would suffice.
