Dog-lovers will no-longer be able to bring their four legged friends into Wetherspoons from Monday (September 10).
While Wetherspoons has had a policy banning dogs from its pubs since 1979, it has not been fully enforced at all its sites.
A spokesperson for the chain said that it is set to enforce the dog ban because even well-behaved dogs can be ‘unpredictable at times’. Wetherspoons is also family friendly and the spokesperson added that young children can be scared by dogs and that food is served in its pubs.
However guide dogs will still be allowed in the chain’s pubs although owners are advised to bring along ‘documentation’ to explain the dog’s ‘purpose’. Wetherspoons’ policy on dogs says: “While we are fond of dogs, we permit only registered assistance dogs inside our pubs and hotels.
Wetherspoons’ pubs in the Maritime Radio area, include The Great Harry in Woolwich and The Gate Clock in Greenwich town centre.
