Ok, if anyone was at Stauntons on Friday night you would have seen him.
Got there at 9pm and there was strange character, drunk at the bar. He got abusive with the bar staff, cos they tried to cut him off! The bar staff in their wisedom figured it was easier to keep serving him ... (go figure!). There was no security and the manager was way too intimidated to do anything about it.
Got abusive with us, cos we weren't interested in entertaining him.
Eventually the bar staff was persuaded to call the cops.
The cops, then needed the bar to register an official complaint to be able to take the wanker out ... which they did not. The cops requested that the man leave the bar .. and he kept coming back. What a mess!
Isn't it the bar's duty to protect other customers? Shouldn't a bouncer or security person be around around to take care of drunks? All the staff at Stauntons were TINY and either unwilling or incapable to deal with the idiot.
Perhaps the wonderful SOHO association can use some of the dues that the member establishements pay them to hire a communal bouncer?
