This should not happen if you have a guide dog

First published in Letters

I am writing because I am indignant that, in this day and age, and having owned a guide dog for 15 years I was refused entry into a local restaurant in my home town of Wallingford.

I arrived at 12.30pm with a friend and we were refused entry because of my guide dog.

Surely, in this day and age, this should not be allowed to happen.
