No, just the ones in Portsmouth, Southsea, Gosport and area. I'm glad business is so good there that they can turn customers away in pursuit of dictating clothing choices.

Not talking about going in, but I seriously doubt it's only the North Sea coasts of England and Belgium which will serve everyone from their hatches without applying a dress code.

My local bank has a sign, "Robbers - please do not bring shotgun into the branch." Like any other such sign, its effect on reducing crime and bovver is zero.

You simply cannot tell from somebody's appearance.

A few years ago, there was an armed robbery at a jeweller's in the middle of Leeds. The staff's caution was reduced by a wheelchair user pressing the button to be let in and once inside the robber produced an unlawfully shortened shotgun from under the blanket over his knees. I've been unable to find anything about it by googling, largely because they've had a more recent armed robbery. (With apologies for the Daily Mail link)

Note how the baddies have their faces hidden. Note also that the goodies prevailed on this occasion. :D
