Worst pub experience in Texas, rude bartenders
Worst pub experience in all of Texas. Rude staff. I'm a native Texan and a proud Austinite. My friends and I went here last night following a movie to grab a drink. The second we walked through the door the bartenders, a brunette man and a blonde woman, began SCREAMING from ACROSS THE ROOM at us to show our IDs. We were a little taken aback because 1.) We are of legal Texas drinking age, members of our party were 22-28, to give you an idea and 2.) I have never in my life encountered such rudeness and hostility in Texas in a pub of all places! Needless to say, after BOTH of the bartenders began to yell at us while we were quietly talking and deciding what to order (their prices of $5 for a glass of draft were a little high by Texas standards) we decided to walk out. Instead, we went to Crown & Anchor and had an amazing experience there as usual!

After seeing so many positive reviews, I'm really shocked no one else had our experience. We honestly encountered the rudest, most impatient bartenders at the Draught House last night. And I have no idea why they were so impatient.... we were the only ones in there. My advice, don't go here unless you want to submit to being yelled by impatient staff with terrible manners. There are so many great pubs/bars in Austin and the Draughthouse is just not worth it.
