A couple are furious after a restaurant and pub owner reportedly told them to go to a gay bar when they asked him to drink a cocktail.
Glynnie Barry and her friend Gordy Watson had checked in earlier this month at White House restaurant in Wanaka, New Zealand.
The couple approached restaurant owner and bar manager Peter Scott to ask if the bar had a cocktail list.
& # 39; When we asked for a cocktail, the restaurant owner said to us: we don't do cocktails, the gay bar is on the way & # 39 ;, Barry told Daily Mail Australia.

Mrs. Barry – who runs a hospitality business – said the restaurant owner & # 39; very rude & # 39; and that are comments & # 39; inappropriate & # 39; goods.
& # 39; We sneaked out of the place and went to another place, Wanaka Gourmet Kitchen. We asked them if they had a cocktail list, they were busy making one, but were happy to make us a cocktail, & she said.
& # 39; They still made us a drink that we wanted. This is what the hospitality industry stands for. & # 39;
Mr Watson is a professional fishing and hunting guide and the couple have been together for 22 years.
Mrs. Glynnie said she was disappointed with the behavior of the White House restaurant owner.
& # 39; Wanaka is an international city and is this how they want to build the social fabric of society? & # 39; she said.
The couple approached restaurant owner and bar manager Peter Scott to ask if the bar has a cocktail list. Mr. Scott has reportedly said they don't, we don't do cocktails and there's a gay bar on the road
Mr Scott said stuff he cannot remember the exact remark, but said it would have been lighthearted.
He said his place & # 39; very gay friendly & # 39; is.
& # 39; We don't post a registration form, but we get a lot of gay men and women here because they like the extremely relaxed atmosphere, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; If I offended anyone, I would unconditionally fully apologize. & # 39;
White House has a small family restaurant located in an Art Deco building from 1930.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr. Scott for comments.
