A pub has advertised for "topless barmaids" to increase trade.
An advert stunned locals by saying: "Vacancy: Topless barmaids required. Call Claire or pop in at The Portman.
However Claire Miss Higginbotham, who has run the pub since November 2012, said: "I just wanted to put feelers out.
"I am not advertising it as a strip club or anything like that.
Just a themed night every now and then. It was a one-off, we had permission from our landlords.
"But it is not something we are going to do, from the responses we got back."
The Portman Hotel in Bournemouth, Dorset, has now taken the advert down.
