It’s now been 12 months since a Wetherspoons was slammed after refusing to serve two women for wearing “inappropriate” crop tops.

Disgusted punter, Mollie Wood, went viral after posting a video claiming the male manager said her attire was “equal to a man being shirtless”.

After the humiliating visit to the boozer with her friend, Amy Lee, in Reading, Berkshire, she fumed: “We got halfway walking through the pub when a male manager shouted for us to stop.

"He said, 'You can't come in here, you're dressed really inappropriately and it isn't suitable.

"'You can't be wearing a top like that.'"

The Reading based tech worker, who was visiting the pub to grab food after England beat Croatia in a Euro 2020 match, added: "I was just really embarrassed…

"We'd been in four pubs earlier that day and never been denied entry.

"I told him how sexist it was to compare me to a topless man. I was wearing a top. I wasn't topless."

After the footage circulated on TikTok, the Back of Beyond pub was bombarded with bad reviews on TripAdvisor and Google.

Now, one year later, the Daily Star glimpsed at more recent reviews to see if visitors were still feeling aggrieved.

And the responses were mixed…

Only two weeks ago Dean Croker moaned: “Awful staff. Great drinks and food ruined by rude staff. It is not a great building, like some spoons, but the staff have a terrible attitude making the place awful. Cameras in toilets. Staff against customers. I can see why this is worst spoons in Berkshire.”

And just two days ago Haydon Walters wrote: “Staff are rude and grumpy. Also the staff are abrupt to customers when English is not their first language. This ruined our visit. Will not be coming back as the staff are so rude and useless.”

Another concerned reviewer added: “Just a warning to any women: this place lets men use the ladies toilet.

“Disgusting and disturbing. Clearly womens safety is not a priority here.”

Meanwhile one unsatisfied Google reviewer, Grace da Costa, said: “The rudest staff and most horrible experience. People literally only come here because it’s convenient. Wouldn’t bring an enemy here.”

But the pub has also been flooded with positive feedback in recent months.

Julian White said: “Large pub which was kept clean and tidy, with friendly staff members and the usual low prices for food and drink. Good selection of real ales and comfortable environment. Felt sorry for staff member who IDed a customer and got lots of verbal abuse, but they remained professional. Nicely managed pub.”

Anti-woke commenter Eujune Pak added: “Great place for drinks, especially at the price point! This place got flagged by a bunch of angry Karen feminists but standards are standards and that is what makes the ambiance so great here. If you want to dress trashy go to the red light district.”

And a reviewer, called Murph, wrote: “Drinks on Friday night then breakfast on Saturday + Sunday morning – Great food & service was excellent at each visit – Very polite & friendly staff/management.”

Daily Star has contacted Wetherspoons for comment.

After the crop top furore last June, Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: "Two female customers visited the Back of Beyond pub in Reading on Sunday evening at approximately 7.40pm.

"Shortly after entering, the customers were politely asked to leave the pub as, on consideration by the pub’s management team, their dress was not, in this particular case, in accordance with the company’s guidance to pubs on appropriate customer dress.

"What may be considered appropriate dress is invariably a matter of individual judgement and whilst no offence was intended to the two customers by the request to leave the pub, we support the approach of the pub’s management team in this instance."

But defending herself, Mollie questioned: "Why are cleavage and boobs inappropriate? They’re literally for children…

"I've got a larger chest. Even if I wore a turtleneck you'd still see a very noticeable shape.

"My boobs are always going to show because I have them and there's nothing I can do about that."
