Blind man left disgusted after guide dog is turned away
A BLIND charity chief was left shocked and disgusted when he was refused entry to a restaurant because customers did not want his guide dog inside. Andy Shipley, chairman of disability charity Fieldfare Trust, was in a party of six staff who were turned away from Shahzad Indian restaurant, in Park Street, Slough.
Mr Shipley has a deteriorating eye condition that severely limits his vision and he relies on guide dog Winnie to get around.
Despite having only two tables of customers on Sunday, May 20, manager Muhammed Saleem, claimed customers did not want a dog in the restaurant.
Law states restaurants are obligated to make amendments for guests with guide dogs, but despite protests, the manager refused to back down. (...)
