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

Funny that. I got barred from the same pub.
The Fort St George in England is on Middsummer Common in Cambridge, next to a bridge that was my route home from my local pub, the Hopbine. One night myself and a few mates popped in for a top up and began playing an old pub game they had in there called 'ring the bull'. The object of the game is gently throwing a metal ring (approx 4" wide and weighing about 5oz) which is attached to a yard of cord, trying to hook it to a spike on the wall, just below the ceiling. Being a tad pissed I somehow thought is might be a good idea to throw it hard, and bounce it off the wooden beam and onto the hook. Unfortunately I hit the landlord squarely in the gob knocking three of his teeth out. I have been banned from many pubs in Cambridge due to alcohol related shenanigans and still hold the record for being barred for life from 5 pubs in one night during my attemps to do the 'King Street Run' (a famous pub crawl race in Cambridge en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_Street_Run ) My problems began when I started 'practicing' early that morning, and had consumed the best part of two bottles of vodka before the race started. Funnily enough it was the same year my friend John Phillips won the record for the race. I have not had a drink now for 11 years which is just as well.
