You only have to look at the many complaints on here about easyJet staff not letting bikes in poly bags on a flight. The company have a clear and cycle friendly policy, but tell that to someone who is denied boarding.
True. Must admit i thought of spoons the other day as i cycled past an isolated rural essex pub. It had a written cycle policy - a sign said "no bicycles on the patio". Whyever not? Fair to assume that cyclists wouldn't deliberately obstruct folk or mince small children in their drive train. I did think of stopping to ask them whyever not or take a pic, but had to press on.
I'd rather go with spoons generally easy going nature. That's the definition of friendly. I wouldn't expect them to state in bold print that bikes can be brought inside. Would cause issues.
