Myself and 10 other women average age of 35 including my mum 60 and her friend of the same age were in Stratford Upon Avon for a sophisticated hen do for my sister.
We were booked into the Arden hotel which is just amazing and they couldn't do enough for us and we had the most wonderful tea and cakes mid morning on the Saturday which I highly recommend!
After a lovely evening meal out at No9 Church Street which was also fantastic and the staff were wonderful we called into The Encore for a drink before heading back to the hotel, we stood at the bar for 15 minutes and the bar staff totally ignored us and carried on serving other people. After a while one of the bar staff came across and asked if we were a hen party (my sister wearing a bride to be sash we could hardly say no.
The lady said I am sorry we do not serve hen parties you will have to leave! I have never heard anything quote so stupid in all my life. Its not like we were a bunch of rowdy teenagers and if we were to enter The Encore without a sash on my sister they would have been none the wiser.
We were going to order a couple of bottles of Verve Clique champagne or similar so their loss and we found another lovely bar who made a lot of money out of us that night.
