"Pet owners are boycotting an award-winning Black Country pub after bosses banned dogs from the premises.

The Beacon Hotel in Sedgley has angered customers who say pets have been allowed inside for as long as they can remember.

They are now collecting a petition in a bid to try to get the decision reversed. However, Beacon landlord John Hughes said he had become concerned for people’s safety after three “serious complaints” were made. One of the incidents involved a man being bitten on the ankle.

The Beacon, which has been named West Midlands Pub of the Year by CAMRA for four years running, was one of only a few pubs where dogs were allowed, said Mr Hughes.

Victoria Perry, aged 33, said she was shocked to see a notice in the pub informing customers that dogs would be banned. She had been taking Wilf, her four year-old King Charles Spaniel, along to The Beacon for four years. She claims to have the support of scores of regulars in her fight against the new rules.

Mrs. Perry, a nurse in A&E at Dudley's Russell Hall Hospital, said: "Dogs have been welcome as long as anyone can remember so I was really shocked when I saw that notice. A lot of people go to the pub for the good beer and the atmosphere - but also because it is dog-friendly. People take their dogs out for a walk and then pop in for a drink."

Mr. Hughes said: Pub that sell food no longer allow dogs but, as we only focus on ale, we tend to get more than our fair share here. We love dogs, don't get me wrong, and it is regrettable that we have had to make this decision. But I have a duty of care to my customers. We have children's areas and I am concerned that something serious could happen."

Mr. Hughes sparked controversy last year when he banned a blind dog from his pub, saying there had been a number of complaints about 12 year-old mongrel Toby urinating on the floor.”
