    A little off topic for MSE but trying here anyway.

    I am a 50-something that occasionally gets mistaken for a senior.

    However, I have been refused entry to a late opening pub in Bognor Regis because I cannot provide photo Id.

    There is an article on the Telegraph website that advises youngsters against using their passport, and I don’t drive ( so don’t have a driving license).

    My understanding is that licensed premises can deny admission to anyone and don’t have to give a reason. But I don’t understand why a tanked up teen can get in whilst their sober grandad can’t.

    Do I have a leg to stand on?

    And there's your answer.

    Move on.

    Contact your local newspaper, or maybe even the national press. They love this sort of idiotic stuff. It reminds me of the case a while ago where a pub had a 'no hats rule'. The (totally thick and stupid) landlord insisted that a one-year-old have his bonnet removed while he was sitting in his pushchair. I guess the average IQ of door staff is not very high.

    Do "Prove It" cards still exist?

    Or can you get hold of a karate licence?

    I suspect that the pub wants do appeal to the younger market and doesn’t want an over 50 year old person in there bringing the scene down.

    It reminds me of the case a while ago where a pub had a 'no hats rule'.

    Or the pub that insisted on no leather jackets. All well and good until one hot summer day, a gut turns up in a one piece leather. Gets told to take it off, so he does. Stands at the bar stark naked asking for a beer. :eek:

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
