As a local resident, I was on the train back from London and met 2 friends on the train and we decided to have a quick pint at The Ethorpe. We were served by the manager at 11.04pm, who said sorry she wouldn't serve us unless we were residents as we close the bar at 11pm.
When a resident offered to buy us a drink, having overheard this, she still refused and asked us to leave as we were not residents.
I don't think I have ever experienced such rudeness and poor service. NOt only was the manager rude and arrogant, but one of her young bar staff was very bolshy and insulted one of us......I will never step foot in there again, there are plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby where the staff are friendly and understand service.....words almost fail me.....More
