I took my wife for a meal at the Cross Hands this evening9th Aug. We were disgusted by the foul language at the bar. A group of 3 locals who I have seen in there on many occasions were very loud ffing and cing saying going upstairs for a [--] etc. As well as this there were two Jack Russell dogs fighting over some sort of toy.
What amazed me was the fact that one of the bar staff who was off duty joining in the swearing and banter, and the general manager joined them too, the ffing cing continuing.
There were a lot of elderly people in the pub being intimidated by this behaviour.
We decided to leave as I don't expect have to put up with this type of behaviour in this type of establishment.
I went to the other side of the bar and complained to the guy behind the bar about the foul language . He said he was out ranked and agreed with me.
We paid our bill and left after telling him I was going to contact the brewery.
I have been eating here for the last 5 years at least 3 times a month but don't think I will be returning in a hurry if this type of behaviour is condoned by your manager.
I am no prude having worked in the Prison Service for 20 yrs. but I do not expect my wife to have to put up with this on a night out.
