Vicar refused entrance to wine bar for 'health and safety reasons'
A vicar was denied entrance to a wine bar on Easter Sunday because he was wearing sandals.
Reverend Andrew Dotchin was told he wasn't allowed to enter The Wine Bar in Ipswich town centre for health and safety reasons and was ultimately forced to spend his evening in Vodka Revolution instead.
He explained: "It was Easter Sunday and I had done six church services and I had finished Lent - I only have one pint a day during Lent.
"I thought 'Christ has risen, let's have a pint'.
"So I went to a beer festival with my brother and some friends and had three or four pints and we decided to go to the wine bar for a last drink.
"The man on the door said no flip flops in here and I said 'You've got to be kidding? Trust me, I'm a vicar'.
"But I'd love to go back, they do great mojitos."
