96FM Speaks To Bloke That Prompted Pub's Ban On Under 21s
A young diesel mechanic who was banned from the Windsor Hotel in South Perth says he has no idea what he did to deserve the blacklisting.
The apparent actions of “Tommy” and some of his friends forced the pub to raise the minimum age requirement for its back bar to 21 on Friday and Saturday nights.
The pub implemented the policy after a “motley crew of patrons” had shown a lack of respect, including breaking glass, urinating on the floor and damaging toilets, PerthNow reported.
“I’ve got no idea what I’ve done, to be honest,” Tommy exclusively told 96FM’s Paul & Lise.
“I left a bad review, that’s about all… [apparently] I’m the leader of some bloody gang.”
Paul asked Tommy about the review he had left.
“I just said ‘sort it out, Windsor’,” he said, and that the pub was “losing business over us young kids” and to just “let the boys play.”
The Windsor responded to Tommy…
“Do you know what they think you did?” asked Paul.
“Nah,” said Tommy.
“I’m pretty confident I haven’t done anything too major.”
Tommy said the blacklisting has left him feeling embarrassed and publicly shamed.
“Especially because I’m not a bad guy,” he said.
“I’m pretty well behaved most of the time and work my 10 hours a day.”
Paul & Lise asked if he had any previous run-ins with the law, to which he said there was “no black mark” on his name.
“I’ve only had one speeding fine, I think.”
96FM approached the Windsor Hotel for comment but they declined.
PerthNow reported the pub stands by their decision.
