East End pub bans West Ham fans

A brewery situated within spitting distance of the Olympic Stadium has told West Ham supporters they are no longer welcome.

The Crate Brewery, which is situated at Hackney Wick - just a few hundred yards from West Ham's home ground - distributed letters ahead of last night's EFL Cup fixture with Accrington Stanley informing fans not to return after the match if they are wearing "West Ham football merchandise".

Writer Emily Pulham, who is a regular contributor to monthly magazine Blowing Bubbles was one of those to receive the letter. Disgusted by the venue's discriminatory approach, she took to twitter to express her annoyance.

"It's frustrating that after spending money and abiding by their rules, I was singled out and told that I wasn't allowed in after the match via a pre-printed piece of paper," she wrote. "I felt unwelcome and so will simply go elsewhere. I was quite surprised by it!

"They told a paying customer her custom wasn't welcome after the match. It's not a great customer experience, I'm afraid! It's fine for them to do that, but it's not very welcoming and just not for me.

"But is a shame to be told that when you're a well behaved patron."
