We know, we know. These chalkboard signs are literally everywhere nowadays.

Mostly, they’re full of Happy Hour deals, the odd inspirational quote, or a lame Dad joke the bartender was positive was absolutely hilarious.

But sometimes, especially in London, these chalkboards are actually good. Like, just the right amount of cheeky, and guaranteed to leave you chucklin’ for the rest of the day. So to prove it, here are some of our favourites.

1. Danger ahead

We wouldn’t risk it either mate.

2. Good nutrition

You can't argue with science…… ?

Ever heard of someone getting heat stroke in a pub? We haven’t. So it mustn’t have ever happened.

6. So Inspirational

Yesterday, we wanted to see a witty yet inspirational chalkboard about wine. #followyourdreams

7. Science

Ha. Yeah. Energy. (Okay, if you didn’t get it either, there’s no shame here. Just do a little chuckle, nod like someone who knows basic science, and just scroll onto the next one.)

8. The art of persuasion

Let’s be real, we all know when Jay Z said ‘bitch’, he definitely meant ‘a warming pint of the black stuff’.
