Pleased you like them Jim!

Occasionally, as in every pub, the landlord at the Pickled Egg has to deal with difficult situations and customers like the other day when a man walked into the Pickled egg dressed as a set of Jump Leads.

Straight away the landlord was a little alarmed and politely said...

"I'm sorry sir, I can't serve you wearing an outfit like that, the Pickled Egg has a strict dress code I'm afraid.

The customer pleaded his case "I'm only having a quick pint before I go to a Fancy Dress Party"

After a few seconds reflection the Landlord of the Pickled Egg decided to give the customer the benefit of the doubt and pulls the customer a pint of his finest ale.

"OK, enjoy your pint, but don't start anything"

titter, titter arf arf!

regards Neil

And don't forget the time the white horse popped in for a swift half Neil...

The barman, looking to make conversation, said to the horse "We have a whisky named after you..."

"What? Derek?" asked the horse...

The Pickled Egg is a very friendly pub so horses called Derek are always welcome!

I dont know if you heard but the other day a barman of ours got a bit of a surprise.
His wife came into the PE in an excited state barely able to contain her joy.

"Darling pack all your things I've just won the lottery!!!". "Yippee!!" says our Barman, "Should I pack for tropical weather or for Alpine skiing?"

"Whatever," she says "Just as long as you're out of the house by noon.”

regards Neil

Reminds me of a story from a pub known for its high prices. One day a gorilla wandered in and asked for a pint of bitter. The barman poured the pint, passed it across, saying "That will be £4.50 please". The gorilla looked a bit surprised, but paid for his drink. The barman, as he gave the gorilla his change, said "We don't get many gorillas in here", to which he got the answer "At these prices I am not bloody surprised!".

What about the bloke who goes into the pub and asks for a pint of brake fluid,
O.K. says the barman, but aren't you worried you'll become addicted?
No, I can stop any time.
Boom boom.

....and keeping up the scientific theme, the Pickled Egg played host to a "stag" party of 6 local geeks, and I have to say our Bar staff handled the situation in their usual diplomatic fashion, and deserve a great deal of credit.

In trooped the geeks with their stag party T-Shirts on, Helium, followed by his mates Argon, Xenon, Neon, Radon, and Krypton bringing up the rear.

Could have developed into a nasty situation, so the Barman pointed out Pickled Egg policy, politely but firmly.

"I'm sorry we don't serve noble gases in here"

Luckily there was no reaction.

Regards Neil
