Disabled girl asked to leave restaurant...for being too noisy

A severely disabled teenager enjoying her last meal with her family before going into full-time care was ordered out of a restaurant for being too noisy.

Megan Brennan, 19, and her family were having dinner at the Ham Farm Harvester in Eastleigh, Hampshire, last Saturday when staff asked them to leave.

The family say the restaurant's manager complained that Megan, who has Angleman syndrome, was annoying customers.

Her brother Jack told the Sunday People: "Megan is moving into full-time care but her goodbye meal for her carers was completely ruined by being asked to leave."

He said the manager told the family: "If you can't keep her quiet I am going to have to ask you to leave."

Jack added: "[The manager] claimed other people had complained. We were stunned. They were not accommodating at all. We asked people if they wanted us to leave. No one said they had complained so we refused to go.

"At the end he knew how upset we were but he didn't even apologise."

Harvester later apologised to Megan's mum, Helen, and offered her a £100 gift voucher.

But the mum-of-three vowed to never to return to a Harvester again. She said the service was 'appalling'.

A spokesman for the Harvester said: "We apologise to Megan and her family and are investigating their complaint thoroughly."
