Seven Priests Walk Into A Bar…..And They All Get Kicked Out For Something Silly

Seven Priests Kicked Out Of Pub, Stag Party Mistake


No, this isn’t a joke. Seven Catholic priests decided to enter The City Arms, a pub in the capital of Wales. They were out to celebrate two of their lads who had just been ordained as deacons. But when the barkeep saw the clothes they were wearing, all the priests were asked to leave.

Now, why the bloody hell would someone do that for?? Well, these priests were mistaken for stag lads, which means management thought they had a bunch of rowdy party animals on their hands. Those holy men were sent out the day without one brew in their bellies.

Fortunately, the manager discovered his mistake and brought those fellas back to the pub for a pint on the house. Assistant manager Matt Morgan gave all the holy lads a round of beers for free. ‘By way of apology, he then very graciously provided us with a round of drinks, at which point the group decided to stay, provoking an outburst of applause from the locals casually enjoying a pint,’ one priest told WalesOnline.

The assistant manager of The City Arms regularly ran into stag parties on weekends. So when he saw a pack of “priests” entering his pub, a bunch of red flags went off. Morgan said, “The staff thought they were a stag. We do have quite a few issues on the weekends with parties wearing fancy dress so it is our policy to turn them away.”

Do drunken bros really dress up as priests and get hammered at bars? Probably. I could see it. It’s understandable for Morgan to make that mistake.

However, the holy men involved had a jolly good time regardless. A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Cardiff sent out a special thank you to the pub:

We’d like to thank The City Arms for being good sports through all of this and their kind gesture to our seminarians.

Glad that was all cleared and everyone had a smashin’ time!
