TENSIONS were running high today in a north Yorkshire town after a bitter row broke out surrounding the name of a popular public house, often frequented by many ex-RAF and commercial pilots who have for some reason retired in the area.
Drinkers were last night “interrupted” from supping their pints when a troupe of effeminate men, described by locals as flamboyantly dressed and “not from round here”, stumbled across the pub and thought “it might be their kind of thing”.
The establishment, named The Cockpit, opened last year. Regular patrons initially welcomed the aviation-themed moniker, but have started to petition for the renaming of the establishment after a spate of similar occurrences in recent weeks.
The argument continues.
