Pub Bans Stone Island Clothes And Hoodies As 'Chavs And Roadmen' Misbehave

If you're regularly dressed in Stone Island, hoodies or tracksuits it's probably best to steer clear of The Orange Tree pub in Hereford.

That's because the landlord has put a ban on any of the above... oh and also bum bags are a no-go either.

This is because landlord of the pub, Brian Hoyle, has dubbed those sporting certain accessories as 'chavs' and 'roadmen' that don't know how to behave.

In a bid to get his pub back to what it was in its heyday, Mr Hoyle has announced that Friday and Saturdays will be over 21s only.

He also wrote on Facebook: "No sportswear allowed any day. No Stone Island, hoodies or tracksuits any day. No bum bags."

Roger that.

Speaking to the Hereford Times, Mr Hoyle said: "The youngsters don't know how to handle themselves in a pub.

"A lot of them turned 18 during lockdown and are just misbehaving to be fair, and putting off other customers.

"There's probably people in their 40s or 50s who wear it (sportswear), but I'm trying to make a statement. It's those sort of young ones who are causing trouble."

He went on to add: "There's a lot of young chavs, or roadmen, with bum bags in Hereford, if you know what I mean, been frequenting the pub and they don't know how to behave."

In a further attempt to boost the establishment's clientele, Mr Hoyle has promised to donate 10 percent of takings this month (September) to local charities.

Someone shared the pub's announcement, asking who agreed with the decision and in response one person wrote: "I know people who wear stone Island etc and it doesn't mean they are out to cause trouble I've even seen fully grown adults wearing stone Island etc."

Another added: "I think they mucked it up when they added in specific brands. I think its pretty reasonable, a lot of places have a dress code. But I think the way they've gone about it has made the specific exclusion a bit obviously a*****y."

A third predicted that this would end up costing the pub their customers, when they simply said: "Bye bye business."

Someone who seems to agree with the decision, commented: "Oh, they have gone up market. Hope it lasts."
