"the Lyons Corner House in London,"

It wasn't a "the".

According to the link there were over 200 of them.

Typical of the Brits. Brains to start something then money and someone to improve the system takes over.
Very interesting links.

I went to a Lyons cafe way back in the '60s. I was wearing a sports coat and flannels and carrying a crash helmet having just stepped off my Norton.

I was told that motorcyclists were not served, and asked to leave.

That was in Barry, South Wales.

A group of us were asked to leave our crash helmets outside a pub in Surry back in the 80's and when we pointed out how much they cost and that we could not get home without them he just said "you better go then"

I remember being asked to leave my helmet outside a country pub in the '70s, the pathetic reason given by the landlady was that they took up too much space.
