A standard sign has obviously been sent to all pubs by fax / whatever, so no variation can occur. One had already been defaced with 3 letters locally, I thought what's that, someone's initials apparently. ( who swears a lot ).

I understand why people may swear.   What I don't personally want to hear is constant profanity in the pub.  Surely our English lessons gave us enough of a grip of the language not to use such language all the time.  I had to remind my hubby of his p's and q's last week as the Taddy Lager loosened his lips.  Simple warning did the trick so why can't we all do it to our friends and loved ones!  Why not have a swear box with the money going to local charities.  Immediate barring from the pub is too harsh.

To be fair I don't think immediate barring is intended. The idea seems to be to ask anyone swearing excessively to stop and if they don't they will not be served again on that occasion. However they will be free to visit in future providing they obey the rules.

That is my understanding anyway and I am all in favour.

Been in the Brigadier Gerard this week.

Hasn't made any difference at all.

One bloke with his mate watching the football on a tablet and effing every sentence.

And I was sat in the other side of the pub !

But since the manager is one of the main culprits, it is hardly surprising nothing is being done.

I heard an interesting conversation yesterday about a pleasant lad that goes to one of the pubs I visit with his father,unfortunately he suffers from Tourette's.He is not especially loud but can be heard,he will obviously be ok in his local but what about other SAMs pubs?.Wonder what the brewery's policy on this is?.It was suggested to his father that he write to the brewery for clarification,will let you know if I hear anything more.

I've been informed today  that this was result of a visit by Mr Smith to the White Horse in Beverley last week.    He witnessed a couple of men swearing very loudly in the bar and asked the manager what he was going to do about it? The manager replied what can I do about it?   I believe this notice is guidelines   for the managers to use how their feel fit and maybe not a hard and fast rule.    I've taken my wife into a Samuel Smiths pub today and she is in full support of the policy.

I think this is a good thing, I don't like to hear too much of it, tho' I have let the odd profanity out on occasion. Some folk, tho' seem to be unable to talk withoutan  F as  every other word! That stinks and good riddance to it if this works- I shall just have to be on MY guard too, fair enough.

Next time I am in Lincoln I will be dropping in that pub for a few pints.
