My friend and I visited this beautiful pub over the 2013 Easter weekend to eat and listen to the blues singer. We arrived at 1630 as the singer was due to begin at 1700. The place was not busy and I asked the guy behind the bar about a table for dinner. He looked at me and said, "We are all booked out". Fair enough, however when I then enquired if we could eat at the bar, I was told, "No" and "Don't just go and sit at any of the tables either". He did say we could stand up and listen. We decided to leave. The young singer then asked us why we were leaving so early and we told him of the very rude behaviour of the bar guy. He persuaded us to stay, saying I'm sure some people wont turn up. Please stay and listen. So we did and ordered a drink at the bar. When ordering my second, drink, I asked the bar manager, " If you have a cancellation, may we go on your list for a table?" He said, " They will all come" and turned away. A couple at the bar told me they thought his behaviour very rude and kindly suggested another place to eat. After this episode we left and went elsewhere to eat. Now my friend and I are mature women, nicely dressed and spoken and not loud or drunk. When we left at about 1815 there were still many vacant tables. this type of behaviour is inexcusable and spoiled our lovely time in Albany which we have visited several times over the years.
