Concerning John Deverell and his embarrassing experience at the Polar Central bar in Queens Road, Brighton, when he was told by the doorman he was too old to enter the "trendy bar" (The Argus, December 27).

Notwithstanding that he had gone there to meet his staff to buy them Christmas drinks, he was further embarrassed when his son was not allowed in because he was "not trendily dressed".

My wife and I both enjoy a night out, sometimes even at trendy bars, because, even in our mid-50s, we are both still a good match for most on the dancefloor.

Despite the comments from the manager that C-Side is a successful pub chain which does not discriminate against anyone, I must ask what is C-Sides' interpretation of discrimination?
