7 Welsh priests walked into a bar... and almost got kicked out after being mistaken for a stag do
Diocese of Cardiff
Seven Roman Catholic priests were refused service in a Welsh pub after they were mistaken for a stag party in fancy dress.
Staff at Cardiff's City Arms initially asked the group of young clergymen to leave, but they were allowed in after a manager was persuaded that they were real men of the cloth.
The group was offered a free round of drinks by way of apology, the Archdiocese of Cardiff said in a blog post.
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.
Later that day the pub tweeted a photograph of one of the men holding his pint:
"We'd like to thank The City Arms for being good sports through all of this and their kind gesture to our seminarians," said the blog post.
Business Insider contacted Father Michael Doyle at the archdiocese, who wrote the blog post and was amused to see the story make headlines across the world. He confirmed that the story is true.
