A WOMAN'S head was slammed against a wall at the Horsefair Tavern in Wisbech when her partner followed her into the ladies toilets.
Nick Clifton grabbed Melanie Knight round the throat, and poked her in the eye as he said: "That will teach you for spending money on contact lenses."
Ms Knight later received a call from Clifton, saying "I am going to do you over," Fenland magistrates were told.
Clifton, 34, of Leverington Road, Wisbech, admitted assaulting Ms Knight on December 10.
He also admitted using threatening behaviour against his ex-partner on December 3, and damaging a window at her home in Elm on September 20.
"These are three separate incidents of domestic violence," solicitor John Clarke told the court.

He said Clifton was jealous that his partner looked after their daughter, and had tried to get into her house on the day he damaged the window.
On December 3 the couple had gone out for dinner, breaking the conditions of Clifton's bail, and during a row he threw her telephone out of a window.
During the incident at the Horsefair Tavern, Clifton accepts he "punched her and poked her eye," he said.
Clifton was remanded in custody for three weeks while the probation service prepares a report.
