Also known as “front-loading” or “pre-fuelling”, “pre-loading” is the practice of having a drink or two at home or at a friend’s house before going out to a pub, bar, restaurant or club.
Pre-loading is more attractive for many consumers given the relative pricing difference between supermarket and pub/bar prices.
