The Hoop and Grapes, City Of London

I believe that janiceontheroad is talking about a different incident as we visited the pub on 25 January, before she arrived in London.

Initially my impressions of the pub agreed with the more recent positive comments. It was nice that on a quiet Wednesday evening the bar staff remembered what we were drinking and brought over another round to our table when we asked.

However, this positive impression was spoiled by the landlord making an absolutely ridiculous over-reaction to us using the F word in our conversation, basically escorting us from the near empty bar. If this had been a country pub on a Sunday afternoon with lots of children about I could understand, but we were a group of 4 professional people having a normal pub conversation.

To add insult to injury, the landlord was completely wrong in his argument about the etymology of the offending word being the reason for it not being acceptable language.
