A 22-year-old mother and her 5-month-old son have been banned from visiting her local Wetherspoon pub for allegedly being “too messy”, following claims by the pub management that the woman left her bra in the loo.

Celia Kelly was taken aback when she was walked out of the building amidst accusations that she pushed soiled nappies and underwear across the customer toilet.

She however debunked the accusations, describing them as “borderline laughable.” and “100 per cent untrue.”

It was when Celia attempted to order food at the bar with her five-month-old son Jayson that the disclosure was made to her that, she had been banned indefinitely for leaving the toilets in an untidy state during her previous visit.

Staff of the pub emphasised their accusation with further claims that they had photo evidence and CCTV footage of the mess at The City and County JD Wetherspoon pub in Goole, East Yorkshire. 

Still dumbfounded, Celia rubbished the pub’s allegations that, “It's just a personal vendetta against me.

“When I was speaking on the phone to them I just felt like they were telling me I'm not good enough to go in there.

“The accusations are laughable - I just don't know where they've got it from. They are just lies, they are 100 per cent not true.

“At the end of the day it's their loss because I sometimes go in there four or five times a week - so they're losing custom.”

According to the Dailymail, the deputy manager of the pub escorted Celia outside into the street and said she “wasn't welcome” because her child was “too messy.”

The disgruntled young mother expressed shock that, “I was told that Jayson was too messy and they had CCTV footage and photographic evidence of me leaving dirty nappies and a bra in customer toilets.

“I was sat with my friend Ellie before I ordered, but she was told that she wasn't banned from the premises.

“How can my five-month-old make all that mess? I'm furious with it - he's not big enough to even sit in a high chair.”

Celia’s friend, Ellie who witnessed the embarrassing scene said when she later placed a call to the pub to ascertain if they had any proof to back the claims made against her friend, a staff member said they had CCTV images of the mess in the toilet.

The shameful treatment meted out to Celia surprised her to the bone, as she said “It's all unbelievable.

“I'm not exactly flat chested, if you know what I mean, so people would know if I had taken my bra off.

“I mean why would I throw dirty nappies around? Why? I just couldn't believe it - I still can't.

“The staff members who work there as well have been given me dirty looks and when I've been out in the town centre they've looked at me in disgust.'

Celia's partner Korben Bailey, 20, added: 'It just infuriates me how staff at the pub could treat customers like that - I think it's wrong.

“I wanted to go in to speak to them - but Celia stopped me and said it would just make it worse.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for JD Wetherspoon said “We can confirm that Celia has been barred from the City and County pub in Goole.

“It is a decision taken by the management and one that is totally supported by the company. The reason for the exclusion is due to a previous visit.

“The reason for the exclusion is due to the amount and type of mess, which was left in the customer area, on and around the tables, on the seats and floor, including dirty nappies, which were also left in the toilets.

“The pub staff and management are extremely proud of their high standards of cleanliness.

“We accept that a certain amount of mess is to be expected, however, this was an unacceptable level and a clear disregard for fellow customers and pub staff.

“Ellie is not barred and is welcome back. Additionally, the CCTV cameras do not cover the public bathrooms.”

He however said the matter was being dealt with internally.
