Dublin Restaurant Denies Asking Barry Keoghan To Leave For Wearing A Tracksuit

James Fenton

Being a Hollywood protégé is doubtless thirsty work so its understandable for Barry Keoghan to sit down for a coffee while going about his day. 

However, the Dunkirk star had a bit of trouble earlier today when doing so and took to Twitter to air his grievances. The Dubliner claims that he went into The Vintage Kitchen on Poolbeg Street only to be asked to leave because of what he was wearing. 

However, the restaurant has now hit back by saying that the reason Barry couldn’t get a table was because it was fully booked from 12 noon. 

They added that they would have a table at 2pm and that ‘people can wear what they like here’. 

Lovin Dublin reached out to The Vintage Kitchen for comment and this is what they said:

‘We do not have a dress code and have never done. We have never refused anyone over the way they have dressed in the six years we have opened and the thought of it is laughable.  

‘We are not posh and not trying to be and judging from the restaurant I think any reasonable person can see this. We also refused twelve other people from 12-1pm because we had no tables available.’
