Dear Mr Bryson
Thank you for your letter regarding your experience
at the Hogshead Portobello.
Having discussed the matter with the house
manager, let me assure you that he has no knowlwdge of political
problems that you may have experienced over recent years.
It is at the manager's discretion who may or
may not be served in the Hogshead Portobello, and as you correctly
point out, no reason need be given. Having discussed it at length
with the manager, as joint licensee, I confirm that the decision
to bar you remains in force.
