...to reach the bar - the way is generally blocked by the local gentry who are usually incapable of sitting (even when all the seats are empty) or standing away from the bar to allow us mere visitors a chance to get served. The hotel boss is equally guilty of this practice. Perhaps it's the two bowls of "free" crisps on the bar that keeps these blokes (always blokes) in the way of service.

Come on chaps, show a little consideration.
