This probably should be in a new thread, but I haven't worked out (yet!) how to start one, but it's loosely relevant.
I was in the York Arms with a mate a few weeks ago on Saturday lunchtime, in the right hand side. We'd been in since 12, and after about half an hour, one of the girls serving behind the bar, rather rudely told both of us and a few other regulars that we had to move because people were coming in to eat and they needed to sit down! We were about to leave anyway, but we were well disgusted with the girls behaviour.
We were in again today, and this time there was a sign which said something like (I didn't bother writing it down properly) that ' The room was for diners only'.
The sign went up after we went in so we didn't see it at first. However, a few other people either didn't see it or ignored it, so we did the same.
What is it coming to when the life blood of the pub i.e. the drinkers, are being pushed out for poor quality food?
