This is a question Dodgy boozers

Just a vagabond writes, "I once had a guy in a pub shout completely out of the blue at me 'OI! BIG NOSE!' and then ask coyly 'Fancy a fight?'"

Tell us stories of the dodgy boozers you've been to, and what happened.

Smashing boozer
I used to drink in a pub called the Robert Peel (after ye olde policeman) in Watford. It was positioned on a corner a convenient distance from town centre and the football ground.

I was used to the police having a high presence or even preventing people entering the pubs by the football ground on match days, but this pub was 5 minutes away so normally escaped the jam sandwich embargo.

I recall one day I walked to the pub and found a few police blocking the entrance, it took a minute or so to convince them I was local (complete with showing them my driving licence for ID) before they let me go in.

At the bar the usual faces were inside and I commented about the ordeal of getting in. "It's a Millwall match today, they're expecting trouble" I was told.

"Seriously? What kind of trouble would we get this far from the ground!?" I said, with almost perfect timing a metal litter bin from the high street came crashing through the window and landed on a table then fell to the ground beside me at the bar. Somehow I didn't spill my pint so went and sat down well away from the other windows!

The Peel
used to be a Police station, before it was a pub. Leading to the match day irony of uniformed rozzers trying to keep Millwall fans OUT of the nick....

Loved that pub, probably just for free pool Tuesday.

Always a good night until Julie stormed in and announced that John had "Shit the bed", somehow none of us felt comfortable around either of them after that.
