A PUB has ordered drinkers to whisper in the beer garden after whingeing neighbours complained about the noise.
The landlord at the boozer in Berkshire has put up a tongue-in-cheek sign after locals said the commotion was bothering them.
And photographs were shared online by staff at The Victoria in Tilehurst with the caption "New garden rules #Mildred".
The sign reads: "Dear customers.
"Can we please ask that you whisper whilst in our garden.
"This is due to the fact that we have some neighbours that forget they live next door to a pub and not a library and have nothing better to do than run to the council and whinge."
Councillor Helen Manghnani, who represents the area, defended those who caused a fuss.
"It is difficult for those in senior years to deal with ultra-loud noises," she said.
"To be quite frank, many of the complaints I receive revolve around loud music and late night garden parties.
''With regards to the sign, it could have been a little more understanding, leaving off the sentence referring to living next door to a pub.
"We don't know how long people have lived there, whether the pub came first or the house.
"Either way, sensitivity towards such issues is always a way forward in getting peace and quiet."
Meanwhile, two pals woke up with a sore head last month after racking up a monster £600 bar tab.
The women, from Drogheda in Ireland, went out to enjoy some drinks before things quickly got out of hand.
In a viral TikTok video, one said they began drinking at 1pm – and continued until 11.30pm.

Their bar bill revealed they downed Coors, Moretti, Jägermeister, tequila, Carlsberg, Heineken and a truly astounding amount of Guinness.
Not everyone has such a hard time abstaining.
One man went on a 51-boozer pub crawl over nine hours – but drank just four pints.
Matt Ellis, 48, mainly stuck to orange juice but is claiming a world record.
He said: “I wanted to keep it responsible and didn’t drink too much for my health.”
