'Messy' mum barred from pub

Post by Kitkat on Mon 11 Sep 2017 - 11:56

A mum claims she was banned from visiting her local Wetherspoon pub with her five-month-old son for being too ‘messy’.

Celia Kelly, 22, says she was frogmarched out of the pub after being accused of throwing soiled nappies and her underwear across the customer toilet.

The mum-of-one says the accusations are “100% untrue” and called them “borderline laughable”.

The popular pub chain has confirmed that Celia was banned “due to the amount and type of mess”.

Celia, who works as a carer at a care home, claims she found out about the ban when she tried to order food at The City and County – JD Wetherspoon in Goole, East Yorkshire on August 15.



A member of staff told her they couldn’t serve her and the deputy manager then escorted Celia out of the building, telling her she “wasn’t welcome” because her child was “too messy”.

Celia said: “I was told that Jayson was too messy and they had CCTV footage and photographic evidence of me leaving dirty nappies and a bra in customer toilets.

“It’s just a personal vendetta against me. The accusations are laughable – I just don’t know where they’ve got it from. They are just lies, they are 100% not true.” .......

Well, good for Wetherspoons, I say!  A pub is no place for a baby to be in, in the first place - indeed for children of ANY age!  Apart from the fact that food is being served on these premises ....  This is something I feel quite strongly about.  It's not as if they haven't got considerable choice of places to go that are suitable!  judge
I just wish more pubs would take the same [perfectly reasonable] attitude towards this sort of thing.

I agree with you, Kitkat, a baby has no place in a pub. Shocked no shake



Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.

I don't want to be the black sheep here, but I agree with the fact if the child was that messy and these things that were caught on CCTV then that's down right disgusting.   However I'm a mum of three children, ages 9, 8 and 6......I don't see the problem with a baby being in the pub restaurant if the baby is well looked after and say, a family went out for a meal, as a treat, as if say a new mother was exhausted and her and her fella went out for a meal, with the kids (including a baby!)..... I mean when I had my youngest, we attended our local brewers fayre for a meal out, I didn't think anything was wrong with that, he was fed, changed (nappy disposed of properly!) and went back to sleep in his car seat, while me, my husband and two young kids ate a meal, then they went into the soft play!  Or was that a wrong thing for me or any others to do?

No.  Not at all a 'wrong thing' there.  That premises was obviously a family-oriented place, which welcomed whole families, providing a soft-play area, etc.  Anyone eating/drinking in an environment like that should be prepared to accept that it might be noisy, and maybe even a bit 'messy' in areas, etc.  It's their choice to go there and would have the same option to seat themselves in the areas set aside where kids are not allowed, if they so wished.  Obviously, it depends where you live as to the availability of those types of pubs where they also serve food.  Wetherspoons have their own rules about children and babies on their premises and usually there's a cut-off time after which children are not allowed.  They also have a really ridiculous rule where they allow a maximum of 2 alchoholic drinks to any individual or group that has a child with them!  Rules or not - it should be expected (IMO) for the adult(s) in charge of the children in their care to have a certain awareness and social respect for other customers - and staff on the premises.  That's not always the case.

There are quite a few topics to be found in the Netmums Coffeehouse Forum on the subject of kids in pubs, with some mums (and dads) having differing views; some for & some against. Here's one:
