A pub has blasted "w****r" punters in a furious online rant while listing all the offences that can get them barred following trouble at the weekend.
The Dreadnought Leith pub in Edinburgh slammed "abject b******ery" from some customers as it warned that staff would not put up with inappropriate behaviour from drinkers.
The pub wrote that some drinkers have "forgotten how to behave respectfully" in pubs after they were allowed to reopen during the easing of Scotland's second coronavirus lockdown, the Daily Record reports.
The bar said it would permanently ban any customers who inappropriately touch female staff, abuse workers or complain when they are asked to leave, and those who don't follow the rules can go "f*** themselves".

The pub had previously banned two-piece tracksuits and 'mankles' (turned-up jeans with no socks on to show off bare ankles).
The post stated: "I know this won't apply to 99.9 per cent of our followers but that's another weekend I've received reports from staff of abject behaviour in the pub.
"As regulars will know, this is very unusual for the Dread.
"It seems, however, that some folk have forgotten how to behave respectfully in a hospitality setting."
The post then outlined the Scottish Government's restrictions on hospitality.
It said: "So I'd like to make the following points: 10pm beer garden closing – Not our rule.
"10.30pm indoor closing – Not our rule.
"Maximum 8 people at a table outside – Not our rule.
"Maximum 6 people at a table inside – Not our rule.
"Remaining seated both inside and outside – Not our rule.
"Not mingling with other tables – Not our rule."
The pub then listed all the offences and punishment for punters.

The post stated: "Verbally abusing a member of staff – permanent barring.
"Touching a female member of staff without express permission (yes, this still happens) – permanent barring.
"Touching a male member of staff without express permission – best of luck.
"Being a b****** – asked to leave.
"Complaining about being asked to leave – permanent barring."
Punters who don't follow the rules can go "f*** themselves" with their cash rather than spend it in the pub.
The post added: "Expect these rules to be applied with enthusiasm and vigour. We have more than enough brilliant customers to see us through, we don't need to put up with w*****.
"You see that tenner you're planning to spend on drink you can't handle? We'd honestly rather you rolled it up nice and tight and went and f***** yourself with it."
Pub regulars appear to have loved the rant, with one writing: "Love this pub even more!"
Another user posted: "Love the attitude. Will make a point of coming to your pub".
A third wrote: "Wish this was my local. Top bit of landlording."
The pub clarified in comments to the post: "Now wondering how many folk have the fear after reading this.
"The people who should know, definitely know. So stand easy. You were grand. Thank you for your custom."
