This is a question Barred

I've only ever been barred from one pub, the "Fort St George in England" on Midsummer Common in Cambridge.*

I was part of a group caught drunkenly trying to add our names in biro to a historic signed cricket bat. I still have the pint glass I was holding as I was chucked out.

Where have you been banned from?



*All pubs in Cambridge have posh names like this. 25% fact

Kirkstall Brewery
The place dreams were made!

I got barred from there as well, apparently sitting on a chair too hard and it falling apart (i am only 12 stone, bloody wank chairs) taking a table down with me and cracking my head on the banister behind is being "drunk and disorderly".

Was allowed back in the week after at a charity fundraising event. I pleeded with the manager to re-admit me, if I raised 500 quid for the charity, else my ban stood for the remaining 2 weeks.

I bullied everyone in sight into giving me money, imposed a "girls drink tax" on any bloke drinking WKD/wine/smirnoff ice/etc. charged people 2 quid for the sumo wrestling (it was meant to be free), extra quid for winners of games of pool, and a too long skirt/wearing trouser on girls tax. plus the standard "give me money, its for charity, u selfish cnut, not everyone can afford to go to uni!" (i think it was for some earthquake appeal or something, not that the cash was going to help them get to uni, just rebuild their homes.)

made 543 quid and got pissed for free.

went away with 12 bottles of budweiser as a thank you from the manager.

Became a legend.

my hat was incarcerated
My fedora hat got barred from Chicogo Rock Cafe after a mate of mine kneed a bouncer in the bollocks while wearing it. They now ask people to take their hats off.

Only barred once... 3 days ago...
In a Wetherspoons in Derry with the crew, and keeping in touch with this sailor-namesake, got exceedingly pissed.

Though there were constant complaints from various customers, the barring peaked thusly; My friend swiped several packets of salt and poured candle wax over the table, shredded them together and proceeded to do lines with the unholy mixture.

Best bit was the look on the waitresses face as my friend pulled his head from the table, goggle-eyed to the ceiling screeching 'UUUCCCH!! SHIT!! THATS THE LAST TIME I DO THAT!!'

Manchester University
Student Union. Kicked out and barred for taking the piss out of one of the bouncers.

This bouncer was enourmously fat so me and a bunch of mates were standing in the bar drinking and everytime he did his rounds we'd watch for him. Everytime he took a step we'd do a little jump, exactly in time to his steps. Barmaid was wetting herslef laughing but bouncer didn't see it as funny.

So it was out on my arse - again.....

Planned to throw bomb through window sometime but eventually forgot.

Supermarket
I was barred from a supermarket in Croydon once.

I hate food shopping so I came up with a nifty plan to avoid it. I called it "Zen Shopping".

I'd go into a supermarket and lurk in the aisles. Eventually someone would abandon their trolley while they went running off to get some last-minute item they'd forgotten and I'd pounce on their trolley and wheel it to a checkout and pay for it. A weeks shopping done in a few minutes.

Sadly though I eventually got caught by an eagle-eyed manager and was banned for life. Apparently they'd had quite a few complaints from irate shoppers and had been watching for me.

Curses!

Only attempt when on holiday
One of my best mates and I had recently returned from a girlie holiday in Tenerife. Drinking games in bars had been played a plenty and being pissed up in my local I decided to showcase my newly learned talent.

Drinking a pint of beer with no hands.

For those of you who have never attempted this, it involves sitting/laying on a table and suctioning the pint glass around your mouth before tipping your head back and letting the foamy goodness tip down your throat.

Cue me almost choking to death flailing about sending pints, bottles of wine and glasses on a nice trip through the air. Bar manager looks up to see me sitting on the pub table drenched in my own pint looking like a wet t-shirt contestant with everyone elses drinks in a pile on his normally quite clean floor.

Pretending I had had an Epileptic fit didn't quite cut it.

I haven't been bared
from anywhere

However someone i know told the story about how he has a lifetime ban from a pub for going in as part of a group to hear 'DUM DUM DUM' from the stereo drowning out everything else including conversation. Somone then asked the barman to turn it down and got the reply 'Can't the Brewery's set it'.

Some drunk then thought it'd be funny to say 'I'll turn it down for you!' and put his feet through all the speakers, cue the whole group getting thrown out.

And i know someone that picked a fight with a Landlord but he wasn't barred - he just wisely stayed away.

I'm not
barred from anywhere. But I work in a shop and my boss is insane. Kids have been barred for lending money to other kids and "looking at her funny."

Think the best one though was the time they waited for her in one of those chavved-up Nova's and chased her with taunts for about a mile. Yes, they got barred for that too.

isle of man
when my dad was 18 about 500 years ago (or the 60's as he likes to call it) he and 3 mates went for a drunken womanising holiday in the isle of man. they got up to *Something*. something so bad that he won't admit to it nearly 50 years later.

but i do know that they were offered the choice of the birch or a lifetime ban and chose the ban... scared shitless of their mothers, they spent the rest of the week in blackpool!

what in the name of arse can they have done?!?

Joint Account
I've only ever been barred from a pub once, such is the gentlemanly mannar in which I conduct myself when i'm boozing. In fact, this story has little do do with booze.

Anybody familiar with Lancaster will know the student haven 'The Merchants' - nice enough pub with three long tunnels comprising the main sections of the pub.

The third tunnel, rumour had it, was a safe zone for those who liked a joint with their beer - this was us, and we'd smelled cannabis being smoked in the pub on previous occasions so thusly emboldened we sparked up a fatty boombatty in tunnel three and got nicely stoned with our Guinness.

Trouble was, after two or three of these, we were quite boxed, and the joint I was smoking had long since gone out as I blathered on about some nonsense or other. It was my round and I headed off to the bar with aforementioned number in my hand. Whilst waiting for the black stuf to settle, I noticed the extinguished bifta and reflex-lit it, as i'd done with a thousand roll-ups.

The bar area quickly became a fug of pungent gold seal smoke and it was at this very point two stern looking Police Constables strolled into the establishment - we were off in an instant, finely attuned to the presence of el Plod and fearful of their new powers of the Criminal Justice Act.

A few days later we attempted to slip back into the pub but were informed by the staff that we, being the stupid c*nts who stank the place out with dope and led to a whole bunch of innocent students being searched, were barred for the foreseeable. :-D

Barred for Leeds University Union
Hmmm, relate back to story about the otley run .

One of the pubs is leeds uni union. I was banned from there for standing in between the bar and the toilets, (a kind of corridor) where you are not allowed to have any alcohol. So its ok to have a beer in the bar, and to have a beer in the bog with you, but not inbetween. (strange).

Anyway, dressed as batman, I told the lovely bouncer that I would return to the bar, he took exception to the door I wished to go through (there were two) and decided I had had enough (pint number 10 and I was doing ok).

There I am outside, where my mate having seen the commotion has followed me up, called the bouncer a cnut, and been thrown out himself.

Picture 6'3 batman and 5'8 robin hood calling the bouncers a bunch of cnuts from just outside their juristiction. The bouncer then threatened to "see us round uni and give us a pounding" (bloody student bouncers, think they are great)

Me and my mate told him we did astrophysics and would certainly be up for a fight when we ran into him around campus.

we both go to leeds met uni and have no chance of seeing the fucking twat ever again.

Still, was fun to wind him up hovering our legs into the uni's property.

ha ha ha ha!!!

here's a pic from earlier in the night comments greatfully accepted.

Apologies for it all.

Chain pub bars chains shocker
Not so much me being banned, but all my mates clothes...

Back in the Welsh days of my youth, there was a lovely (read - scummy and welcoming) pub in the hole known as Bridgend called the Kings Head. Many a happy hour was lost in there, giro cheques shared, part time job wages frittered away, cider drunk, nails painted black... and much money spent - those giros were mostly shared with the purveyor of Special Vat cider who stood behind the bar. There were loads of us 'people in black' who effectively lived there; whenever they were open at least one or two of us would be there waiting for the rest (and their money).

As with many thriving pubs, the usual rumours went round about it being taken over and in this case, they turned out to be true. Our lovely, grotty, grimy, cheap, regular and well loved local was going to be turned into an O'Neill's.

Bad enough, we thought, but it'll still be homely. This was the first wave of O'Neill's expansions so we didn't have much idea of what it'd be like, but we kinda knew it wouldn't be good. Little did we know the dastardly plans that went with this seismic shift. Army boots or clothes, chains, leather jackets, ripped trousers - all were banned. So while the landlord didn't actually ban any of us from going in, they made it quite clear that none of our clothes were allowed.

Needless to say, none of us went in naked, and really, never went back again. Our group disintegrated shortly afterwards, never to reform. It was almost as if the landlord's comment, 'The King is dead', referred as much to us as to the pub itself…

Happily, I've since found lots of lovely pubs that let me and my clothes in, and lovely people and am once again part of a 'people in (admittedly tidy and not usually ripped) black who sit in a corner and drink a lot' group. But no more cider. Tastes like vomit nowadays.

Barred from B3ta
I was once barred, or at least suspended, from B3ta as some people had complained that some of my tales were "disrespectful to women".

B3ta? Barred for being disrespectful? I mean, does the Ginger Fuerer and the rest of the mods ever read B3ta?

Still, they let me back when I promised to play nicely with the other children.

Sainsbury's in Winton, Bournemouth
We used to go in there and play Risk with the frozen food (invade next compartment, 1kg petits pois beats 20 Linda McCartney sausages, etc.) - until the manager caught us at it. No more Risk for us.

Student Union Bar
Two reasons:

(1) Going drinking with a garter snake and watching it try to make off with a friend's JD
(2) Singing louder than the jukebox.

K'Ford 10
In our town and in my youth myself and friends would participate in what's know as a K'Ford 10 (stolen from the Smithdown 10 done by many students in Liverpool).
THe last unfortunate pub had the brunt of the drunkeness and on one occasion we all decided to leave the pub which full pints and make our way home.
Cue landlord running after us taking glass and shouting 'your barred'.

For some unknown reason I now live 10 yards from this pub.

Crap story I know, but a story nonetheless.

Barred...
I was once barred from my local and I wasn't even there!!

I was in the middle of a messy breakup and the girl in question was now seeing one of the locals. One night she was in my local and the landlords daughter had a go at her for being a slag and a fight kicked off. Landlord barred slag, her boyfriend and me.

A couple of years later I ended up buying the pub. Try barring me now you bastard!

New Zealand
After being in New Zealand for about a fortnight, the first time me and my mate Gordon got really leathered was in Queenstown on the south island there. Brilliant place, with bars so closely packed you literally do fall out of one and into another.

Anyway, we ended up in a happy hour in the Red Rock Bar that lasted about 3 hours (time is weird there), so we got cained off cheap cheap beer. Now the mistake we made then was to stagger back to the hostel about 8pm and drink the box of wine we had. Then we went out again, ate 4 burgers, and staggered into another bar.

This is where it gets hazy, and I can't actually remember the circumstances of it, but I have a very specific memory, throughout the cloud of drink of several angry looking people at a bar, then the barmaid pointing at the door and shouting "Get out!". I'm sure she must have had a good reason at the time, just wish we could remember what we did!

To be honest don't even remember what bar it was! So I am banned from at least one bar in the southern hemisphere. Just not sure which.

Stamp Collectors Shop
A friend of mine found a really old stamp on a letter his granny sent him, after first researching it on the net he took it to the local stamp collectors shop expecting to cash it in for top dollar.

Instead he got barred for life for arguing over its worth with the shop keeper.

Only person I know to have been barred from a stamp collectors shop.

Me & a mate

were at the Tunnel club in Caaardiff, very stoned, very bored and very nawty.

Out of sight from the main bar was another smaller bar which was closed as it was mid-week. The shutter looked a bit flimsy so we gave it a tug & it came completely off the bar.

I don't know how we thought we'd get away with it but we helped ourselves to several pints of lovely free beer and a few shots of Smirnoff before being discovered, kicked out & banned.

Yeah, like we cared, plenty of other clubs, blah blah blah.

Except come the following week & another mate's birthday being held at Tunnels. Me & trouble had the brilliant idea of wearing hats so they wouldn't recognise us - genius!

Course, the doorman wouldn't let us in so I had another brainwave:
"Look, this has happened before. There's 2 lads out & about who look a bit like me & him & it's them who've been causing trouble. We're getting a bit pissed off with it frankly".

But it worked! Not only were we allowed in, but the bouncer was most apologetic, assuring us it wouldn't happen again. God, I could lie for my country, but getting out of his earshot without cracking up wasn't easy.

They'd fixed the shutter on that bar though :¬(

Barred from A Subcontient
A mate of mine, Bob was once found with a small amount of dope in Denmark. He was deported by ferry and is now barred from Scandinavia.

Beat that....

Edit: I think I'll be posting a few on this subject. It would probably be easier to find somewhere where I *haven't* been barred from!
