This week it goes to an anonymous barman at the Britannia pub in the City.
Ask Ali Ineson and Emma Rutherford who had been taking their kids around various sites of the City (eg the Monument, HMS Belfast etc), and popped into the Britannia (which allows kids inside) for a well earned drink.
The ladies ordered soft drinks for their kids, and a white wine spritzer and vodka and coke for themselves.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, the barman refused to serve them booze.
In his view, it would be "inappropriate" for them to drink in front of their children.
Errmm..that being the case, why does the Britannia allow kids into its bar where they can see lots of adults drinking booze?
Given that he was "happy" to serve soft drinks to the kids, what farking business is it of his what the adults drink?
Methinks it may well have been a lame/bollocks excuse, used because he simply didn't want the families cluttering up the pub when he had City "gents" to serve. That being the case, he should have had the guts to be truthful.
The Britannia is run by Stonegate Pub Company, the company are now investigating what went on there.
