Listen. A lot of straights won't be caught dead in gay pubs; like it or not, there's a stigma attached. Takings may or may not suffer as a result. Personally, I don't care, I go for the beer, the company can please themselves if they engage or not. I've had some good nights in the RL with other customers I've met there. I'm not gay, but don't feel under pressure when I go in. As long as everyone behaves in an acceptable manner, where is the problem? More sinister, to me, is the removal of the cask SSOB apparent when I last went in, pre refurb.
