    Refusing entry to pub because 'your not a student'

    Went for a couple of drinks last night to watch the United game in Preston with a few mates. On entry to a pub in the city centre (not even in the student area) we were asked for our student ID's as apparently its 'student night', as we all work full time paying taxes we didnt have student ID's and so the bouncer refused to let us in!
    We had had one pint when trying to get in so wernt drunk and wernt acting aggresively in anyway.
    Are they allowed to do this? I thought a pub was a public house?
    Just wondering because it was quite annoying at the time. Jokingly told the bouncer we were planning on spending a few hundred quid when leaving lol.

    A pub can refuse to serve you without even giving a reason.

    You were lucky

    "management reserve the right to refuse admission" is a sign that most pubs display.

    or ROAR

    In Newcastle there's a bar called 'Basement', got talking to one of the bouncers one night cos we were on a society pub crawl and he said that during weekdays they've had to limit it to students only because they were getting trouble from locals coming down after a fight.

    You can imagine little Henry and Victoria from the home counties who've probably never had a drink before in their life getting mortalled and causing havoc and prompting a fight.

    Probably the same thing mate

    They would obviously rather have the students who spend very little money as they are already drunk on bottles of 20/20 then people who have the money to buy drink at town centre pubs overinflated prices. Their loss I suppose; plenty of other pubs to drink in.

    Yeah which I thought was for if you were too drunk / acting aggresively / underage / not correct dress code etc. but suppose not bein a student is a good reason lol

    Spent years as a student going to student nights. Never seen an empty bar yet.

    Students = £££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££

    me too, but I know that me and my mates when we were at uni used to have quite a bit to drink before we went out and then just kept ourselves topped up; so although their bars are busy it doesn't always mean loads of money. But all the students will have just got their loans so this time of year they probably are splashing it about a bit.

    I used to run a bar in Preston, with some locals and people that looked rough we used to just lie and come up with an excuse, "no shoes tonight" , "no breathing" but "no non students" was generally reserved to save the sanity of real people.... Students + Bars = £££££££££ + Morons!

    don't go to pubs that have bouncers, rubbish IMO

    If your names not down you're not coming in!
