Seven Roman Catholic priests were refused service in a Welsh pub after staff mistook them for a stag party in fancy dress.
Arriving at the pub on Saturday to celebrate the ordination of Father Peter McLaren, the priests were told by a bartender that the City Arms did not serve large groups in fancy dress.
The archdiocese said they had started to leave when another staff member said he believed they were real priests and invited them back in for a free drink.
“We’d like to thank The City Arms for being good sports through all of this and their kind gesture to our seminarians,” the blog post said.
It said the priests had initially thought the bartender was joking when he mistook them for a stag party, an all-male bash held for men who are getting married and which in Britain often involves dressing up and consuming copious amounts of alcohol.
