Welcome to Hotel Sharia: No more bacon or booze as trendy venue bought out by a Muslim multi-millionaire
by Tom Kelly and Emily Kent Smith
An exclusive hotel has banned alcohol and pork after being taken over by a Middle Eastern businessman who wants to run it 'in accordance with Sharia law'.
The strict Islamic policy was imposed without warning this week at London's Bermondsey Square Hotel – where the bar and grill was previously run by Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace.
Staff said the new rules were swiftly implemented on Tuesday on the orders of the new Muslim owner, forcing waiters to tell disgruntled guests that much of the menu was no longer available.
