I was informed recently that it is not polite for a woman to sit at the bar of a pub. I can understand if you are by yourself, but does this rule still hold true if there are several of us? What is the ettiquette for pubs and women? I've never been to a pub, but would like to go out with my sister and female cousin. I don't go to bars (pubs) here in the states so I am curious? Is there some hidden meaning if women sit at the bar of a pub?
