Chris take a look at this defence on page 9 of this thread
VCS ANPR 2015 PCN claimform - Berkeley Centre Sheffield S11 8PN 1 2 3 4 9
Annie has worked hard to find as much evidence as she can to help her daughter. She has found many reasons for the claim to be rejected, not just one. So even if five or six of them fail there are several more that could convince the Judge to agree that the case has no merit.
Indeed it might not even get as far as Court. VCS might decide to creep off into the night and not pursue the claim or the Court may decide that the case has no merit and throw it out. That would be a far better outcome than going to Court hoping that you get the right Judge to agree with only one reason for nonpayment.
Thanks for all the replies, they have come back and said it is my responsibility to put in the correct details but offered me a charge of £20 as a goodwill gesture, I said on the initial letter I would not be paying and would go to court if need be, so this seems like a last attempt to get something from me.
Is it worth paying to receive the hassle or stick firm and just tell them I am willing to go to court and presume they will just drop it, the hotel is not part of a chain by the way
As @BankFodder mentions, they have every right to refuse you on the premises and serve you.
"Right to refuse entry
The age-old right of a licensee to refuse entry to whomever he wishes still remains and a landlord is not obliged to serve anyone just because they are willing to pay. A pub is a private place and the landlord can make the rules."
I don't think you have much in your favor as none of these events seem to be in any relation to discrimination more so and I hate to say it you rubbing them up the wrong way.
Dog friendly pubs are now becoming more of a thing and as long as they aren't in the kitchen they aren't deemed a H&S risk. If the parents and dog owner where happy with how they handled it you should have just left it at that, I mean if someone accidentally startled / hurt you wouldn't turn round happy to see them.
