A diner in the shadow of Blue Mountain is enjoying some notoriety after being mistaken on-line for the restaurant in Virginia that refused to serve White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders Friday night. The Old Red Hen Restaurant in Collingwood is not the Red Hen Restaurant at the heart of the controversy.
The owner of the “Red Hen” asked Sanders to leave in protest of the Trump Republican Administration’s immigration policy.
Trump supporters have been leaving negative reviews on the Collingwood restaurant’s website, apparently unaware they’ve not only got the wrong restaurant, it’s not even in the same country.
The owner of the Old Red Hen in Collingwood, Diane Smith, says she’s working to get the bad reviews left by Trump supporters on her web site taken down and says she’ll happily serve anyone who wants to eat there.
