Stop me if you've heard this cricket story

Tidying up old CIX messages, I came across this quote from the 1990s:

During a Nat West final at Lord's, a large Home Counties matron bore down on the Compton Bar in search of her errant husband long after the lunch interval was over.

"Is this the Boycott Bar?" she demanded

"There is no Boycott Bar", replied the waitress. "There's the Compton Bar, the Cricketers..."

"I tell you he's in here somewhere. And, believe me young lady, you may call it what you choose, but it's the Boycott Bar. Because once the bugger's in, no-one can get him out."
