Started by a couple of Italian brothers with the surname of Berni. One
specialised in catering the other in accountancy. First pub/restaurant
was in Bristol. Introduced place mats without table cloths and
disposable napkins to save laundry costs. Served good quality meat
bought cheaply from South America. Expanded and bought Schooner Inns,
which they rebranded as Berni Inns. Travelling service engineers in
the 70's noticed Schooner Inns and Berni Inns had the same VAT No. and
the same address - "The Pithay", Bristol.
Eventually in the '80s (90's?) the Berni brothers sold out to
Whitbread for several million pounds who re-branded the chain and
absorbed the restaurants into their "Beefeater" brand.
And now if you want a decent steak you have to DIY !
