A 65-year-old grandfather claims he was refused entry to Eastwood’s Whetherspoon pub because he was wearing tracksuit bottoms.

John Fletcher, of Broad Oak Drive, Brinsley went to The Lady Chatterley with his wife on Friday July 25 but door staff would not let him in due to the dress policy at the pub on Nottingham Road on a Friday.

The retired electrician said he was humiliated by the experience as he had never been refused entry in his life. He claimed people in shorts were allowed in.

The manager has since apologised for the incident and has offered Mr Fletcher a complimentary drink and meal at the pub.
