You can do your shopping online, do your banking over the internet and now you can even pour your own pint via an iPad from the first Welsh 'iPub'.

The Westbourne pub in Swansea has become the first in Wales to allow its customers to use tablet computers to order their food and drinks in a bid to shorten queues Pub landlord Mark Lingwood has spent over £20,000 updating the high-tech venue.

It's something I have looked at for a long time, it's a great, fun idea.

Why queue at the bar when you can use our table top iPads?

Drinkers at the pub now have to buy special cards to use on the iPads which are placed on the tables.

The new system even allows bar staff to see how much customers are drinking.

Staff at the pub say the new, quicker system means they can deliver drinks and food to the tables within two minutes.
