In a post on Facebook, the 55th Division Club issued an apology, stating they were not aware of the intention behind the booking that was made.
It said: “The 55th club apologises for allowing this meeting today. We were told that the meeting was for a union/memorial meeting.
“The 55th club committee were not aware of the reason for this meeting and apologise for this.
“We can confirm that we will be reviewing our room booking policy at our earliest opportunity so that this will not happen again.”
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”.
