Pub falsely forbids father of seven children for breaking the rule of six after arriving with his girlfriend and children – despite the rules that allow households with more than six people
- Daniel Gough, 39, was turned away from the Baldwin Arms pub in Birmingham
- He visited the pub on October 4th with his girlfriend Helen and seven children
- The government regulates six exceptions for large families living under one roof
A father who took his girlfriend and seven children out to dinner at his local pub was turned away on the rule of six, despite rules saying large households are allowed.
Daniel Gough, 39, and his family were turned away from the Baldwin Arms Pub in Hall Green, Birmingham on October 4th.
He was visiting with his girlfriend Helen and his seven children between the ages of 14 and five months, who are exempt from the rule of six because they live together.

The government makes exceptions to the rule when large families live under one roof.
He explained to the staff that the family all came from the same household and asked if they could sit on two separate tables.
But Mr Gough said they would not take him in because his family was too big for the Covid rule of six.
The scaffolding worker, who says he has been to the pub regularly and visits "about three times a week", said the situation "really upset" him.

Mr Gough told BirminghamLive: “I know the government takes into account large families like ours who live in the same household.
I asked to speak to the manager and she didn't move. Sitting on two separate tables was annoying, seemed like an easy fix. & # 39;
He added, "That day we went to another pub nearby and there was no problem."
A Baldwin Arms spokesman said they were aware of government decisions about large households but could "cause confusion with other guests."

They added that the venue, which is a Hungry Horse pub, has decided to limit table size to six at all costs.
The spokesman said: “Since reopening, we have encouraged all customers to pre-book their tables in advance of their visit.
"If a household or bubble group has more than six people, we will do our best to place them on adjacent tables. However, due to availability during the day, we cannot guarantee that this will always be the case."
