Has anyone ever noticed strange and unfriendly behaviour from the staff at the Boot & Flogger?. We were stunned on Friday evening when one of the barmaids demanded that we replaced the armchair we had moved slightly across to our table, and argued when asked why she had been doing so so rudely and unnecessarily, that we wouldn't like it if someone was rearranging the furniture in our living-room!. When I failed to see the logic behind the argument she insisted the man who'd sat next to us (and who had a choice of two armchairs to sat on), was usually accompanied by his wife. We dutifully put back the armchair to where it belonged even though the customer himself said he didn't mind if we took the armchair. The regular's wife never turned up, our friends did, so we did eventually use the armchair but left us wondered what was wrong with the staff. Could it be they can't get used to the new clientele and only cater to the regulars?
