“The 55th club committee were not aware of the reason for this meeting and apologise for this.

Meanwhile, the Bull & Royal are tackling controversy in a different manner.

Responding to questions on social media, they instead decided to make light of those querying their decision about who goes through their doors, stating at one point that “it’s business and free advertising”.

While some users decided this tweet could be interpreted in different ways, the Bull & Royal appeared to deny this.
