Harvey is getting out of control.

What type of fowl language is she using? Cock? I thought they normally hired couples to manage the pubs but it sounds like they've put all their eggs in one basket with her.

ECBD  You know Harvey he lives next door to Alice He's a show jumper well known for sticking his two fingers up in public, never in a SS pub though.

If I'm ever in the yewtree and she starts with the bad language I'll probably leaf in disgust.

Why get angry or upset say put count the number of profanities and there type then send details to Humphrey in a nice hand written letter. If he is throwing good paying customers out for bad language he will have no hesitation throwing payed employees out.

Please stop egging people on with this silliness, I don't want anyone walking on eggshells, but really, let's be adult, you'll only end up with egg on your faces, and how can anyone see Harvey anyway, he's invisible.

Stopping swearing in pubs is impossible ,it's like stopping 99's in ice cream cones it ain't going to happen
most people don't swear abusively but when someone disowns the common language that is inoffensive
to most people today you have to think we have taken a step backwards..swearing is a useful tool when
used correctly and it isn't rife and it was rarely a problem in any Samuel Smith pub before the ban began

I know a landlord that owns/runs his own pub.

He has a strict no swearing policy, to the extent that a well known 60's singer came into his establishment and was swearing a lot.

The landlord took his glass off him, poured it down the sink and gave him his money back, and ordered him out of the pub.

The well known 60's "pop star" then tried the "do you know who I am", the landlord reply was, I do not care who you are, but you are now bared from using that language so go away and never come back.

I do get that well timed swearing has comedy value, but agree with this landlords policy.

I personally get sick and tired with chavs swearing in public places like this. So I actually support the Sam Smiths swearing policy.

To be clear, the example I am using above is a private owned pub, and has a serious roaring trade, so a no swearing policy works.

Totally agree, was in a SS pub this afternoon and was disappointed the bar staff didn't do anything when faced with a customer who was a) having a conversation which starts it's me not you, b) drunk and c) started to get vocal with innocent customers.  Thankfully as this is large pub with plenty of rooms I was able to move.   Other customers on reading the no swearing policy couldn't understand why SS have it when they don't cater for the child market.  To me we know the rules, we have choices and if you want to swear go elsewhere....

Personally, I find it helps to go outside for a swear break.

After a couple of pints speaking the Queen's English, I tend to just step outside for a minute or two and let off a volley of expletives. I try not to do it in the doorway, as I wouldn't want customers entering or leaving the establishment to be subjected to my second-hand blue air.

Once this has been dealt with, I am refreshed and relaxed, ready to enjoy my next pint of Extra Stout.

Let's go the whole way. If you want to have a smoke or swear you have to stand out side why not add drink to the list! Then we can all sit around the fire in Humphrey's pub in total silence with the occasinal russle of a bag of plain cheese and onion chrisp to amuse us.
