  • Customers at The Brickmakers pub in Hampshire were shocked to see a horse at their local on December 29
  • Pub owners Koren and Gareth Blake said bringing the horse ‘was not acceptable’
  • They called it ‘complete ridiculousness’ and were concerned for it’s welfare 

Pub bosses have hit out at a customer who brought a horse into their establishment, as they described it as a ‘health and safety issue’ and ‘complete ridiculousness’. 

Customers were shocked to see a person lead the horse into their local, The Brickmakers pub in Swanmore, Hampshire, on December 29.

Staff also spoke of children ‘wrecking the place’ despite them not being permitted in the pub after 7pm.

In a social media post, the owners – Koren and Gareth Blake – said bringing the horse ‘into the establishment was not acceptable’.

They continued: ‘Just to reiterate, we do not allow any animals or livestock in our pub.

‘Apart from the complete ridiculousness of it and the poor horse’s welfare, it’s a health and safety issue.

‘Nor do we allow children in our bar after 7pm. If people do not adhere to the rules they will be barred.

‘We do not want to be a pub where children are allowed to run around wrecking the place whilst their parents get drunk.

‘So sick of moaning about the same things.

‘From now on, if customers do not follow our rules they will not be served.’

They concluded the  post by calling for more police presence in the village.

However some people found the incident funny and took to social media to share puns. 

One posted: ‘It’s the neigh-bours I feel sorry for.’

Koren and Gareth, have run the independently-run pub since 2011, but in 2020, they were battling to keep their pub afloat in the pandemic.

They described how Koren looks after the front of house while Gareth is the head chef, and they were living above the pub with their son and dog.

Koren said she was grateful to their landlord, who let them have relief from their rent during lockdown.

She said ‘Without that help then we would have closed for sure.’

The Brickmakers declined to make any further comment
