Prat Of The Week - The Barman at The Britannia

PratAnother Monday morning has appeared, to ease the gloom that shrouds our minds let me award my internationally renowned and famous "Prat of The Week" Award.

This week it goes to an anonymous barman at the Britannia pub in the City.

For why?

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.

For why?

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.

Anyhoo, here's to the anonymous barman at the Britannia...well deserving Prat of The Week!

  1. There appears to be a trait in so many of my fellow countrymen that makes them want to boss others around.....So often their diktats make no sense until you accept the only reason they put them in place, is because they can. Peak Cap syndrome.

    A well deserving Prat of the Week.

  2. I am going to use for the first time ever my newly discovered way to swear politely, this is for the barman, tw@

  3. Why did they only leave "as soon as the children had finished their soft drinks"?
    They should have left immediatly regardless of whether those drinks had already been poured.
