Heros pub orders family to leave during sons wake
31st May 2013 at 4:56PM

A World War I hero’s family was thrown out of a pub named after him – at the funeral wake for his son.

They were asked to leave the Wilfred Wood by staff who took exception because one of the group was just 16.Wetherspoon named the bar after the Victoria Cross winner when his son, Harry Wood, gave his blessing two years ago.

Totally disgraceful,
I hate that pub. The beer cellar upstairs is always empty on Sunday nights!.
Just another reason to boycott it.

The chains policy is that under 18s are asked to leave before 8:30 pm and that it was they asked the party to do they did nothing wrong its been blown up to make a story where there isn't one and of course the people who don't approve of the place want to jump on the bandwagon
The grove and its pubs are like a ghost town most nights and the Wilfred wood is one of the few pubs that still gets busy.

Maybe if the family had decided to approach the management of the establishment BEFORE the event they may have been treated differently? The fact that it is reported is a joke in itself. 'Oh my god, I am so wrongly treated that I will go to the press about the fact that I was thrown out of Weatherspoons for taking someone who is underaged' Sorry but jog on. It's clear that because the name of the pub is DEDICATED to a relative of theirs, they think the rules do NOT apply to them. Jog on. I actually think it is disgusting of a 'family member' to push this as far as they have in order to get a report online/in the press etc. Whoever pushed it far enough should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

I have done a quick 'google' and it looks like Wilfred Wood lived to an old age (passed away in 1985) and reports show between 140/160 opposing soldiers surrendered, (not the 300 claimed in that crap article.) Please note that I am not knocking his bravery, purely crap reporting, he had balls of steel.   

The story in itself is piss poor reporting.

EDIT: It could be worse, you could have the 'Bamboo' letting people in who are underaged? You get a decent well run pub and people STILL moan?

Can I remind you all of this? (I came in on page 4, I was 'Climate' at the time. I stand by everything i stated!)
