Itís not the barmans job to look after your drink as much as it would be for him to keep watch of your phone or car keys. You took the risk, your mistake.

Completely your own fault. The barman’s priority is to serve other customers he can’t neglect doing that to watch your drink. While he’s serving other customers and it gets taken it’s your own doing. Lucky you got another one, you probably got one because you were more of a bother to him to not replace it in all honesty. Hopefully youll learn from this

If I was the barman I would have laughed in your face.

It's your responsibility to keep an eye on your drink, if you leave a drink unattended then it being stolen is the least of your worries. Either take it with you or leave it with someone you can trust.

Blaming someone who's just trying to earn a living and threatening the police on them for his own incompetence is the farthest thing from winning.

It was the owner I spoke to..not the hapless barman.

I almost held my smirk in when he was getting a severe telling off.

And I did say I was spending time chatting to the barman before going to the toilet...the place wasn't that busy either.

You sound all proud and smug about it here in this thread... but you really shouldn't be.

If they had explained that in the manner you did then I would have accepted that but they didn't. ..they ignored me point blank and I'm the customer. Ten pound a pop as Cherie puts it so well...you don't expect that in such an establishment...which I told them..mid stomp.



Edit, I also had the 2nd cocktail that wasn't shutting me up so I doubt another one would have.

I don't leave my purse unattended at the supermarket... if I did and it was stolen... I wouldn't blame the operator/manager. I'm an adult and as such I take responsibility for my own actions.

Ive been a barman as well...


What if you had spent the last ten minutes laughing and joking about cocktails in your bar that wasn't that busy and the customer nods to the drinks he has carefully placed next to the pump where you had been standing chatting mouthing am going to the toilet as he stared you in the eye.....would you nod and mouth ok..like he did..



Cause if that was me that was me taking responsibility for his drinks.

Wouldn't you request the manager looks at cctv and you perhaps call the police?

That's asking then for assistance, not blaming them though.
