Sheffield pub has perfect response after parent asks to come inside with disabled son – The Star


A Sheffield pub had the perfect response when a parent asked if he could bring his wheelchair bound son inside.

The Barrel Chapeltown took to Facebook to reveal how the man came in and asked if they would be allowed to remain in the pub.

He warned staff that his child ‘sometimes makes loud noises and waves his arms about’, and that people have ‘made comments’ in the past.

In an emotional post on Facebook, the pub said it broke their heart that a parent would need to ask if they could bring their child inside.

The pub posted: “My intention is not to embarrass the parent who I spoke to yesterday, it has played on my mind all night about how this man must have felt asking me if his child would be accepted in here. It then got me thinking about how many other people must be in the same position

  1. In response to a person, Eugene who made the follwing comment in the Sheffield Star ‘Shouldn’t be taking kids in a pub in the first place.
    It’s a pub, not a playpen’ and my response ‘Eugene, I feel sorry for you and give you the benefit of the doubt that you are ignorant to people with disabilities and their right to live their own lives.

    We have progressed so far in the treatment in Society given to persons with disabilities and no longer are they taken away and placed in institutions aways from the sight of others.

    Should you not be coming from a place of ignorance, there are now Laws to safeguard disabled people from the outlandish and outdated views being expressed by yourself.

    If you continue in this vein you may find that you could be charged with committing a Hate Crime for which you can be arrested.’.
