Half the Customers at the Cask and Flagon in Marshfield Skip Out on Paying after Fire Alarm

The "other" location of a popular Fenway restaurant and bar suffered some damage after a fire alarm went off over the weekend, but the damage had nothing to do with fire, smoke, or water.

According to an article in The Boston Herald, a smoky pan at the Cask & Flagon in Marshfield led to a fire alarm going off Sunday afternoon, causing diners to have to leave the premises and wait in the rain for 15 minutes, and according to manager Devon Lamothe, "50 percent" of them left without paying. The post says that the Plain Street dining spot is tallying the amount that was lost, and as Lamothe says, "We unfortunately have to comp all that." As of yesterday, five patrons had called with credit card numbers and it was hoped that the rest of the patrons would take care of their bills by the end of the day.

The address for the Cask &amp Flagon is 804 Plain Street (Route 139), Marshfield, MA, 02050; their original location can be found at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Lansdowne Street by Fenway Park in Boston.

Isn't that what they have insurance for??

The fire alarm went off, and people had no idea if it was a frying pan or the place burning to the ground. It would seem unreasonable to ask everyone to wait outside 'just in ace' it wasn't a full blown event and they could come in and finish their now-cold food. Who knows - it could have been 2 hours before the place was re-opened. There's no way a customer would have known that.
