Chancellor Rishi Sunak has been banned from a pub in his own constituency amid a huge row over free school meals.

The Mill in Stokesley said it has banned him after Tory MPs voted against extending the scheme to cover school holidays.

Other local Tory MPs have also been barred from the boozer, TeessideLive reports.

England ace Marcus Rashford has been leading calls for the Government to extend the scheme.

The decision to vote down his campaign on Wednesday sparked a huge backlash across the country.

The Mill said Tory MPs Matt Vickers, Simon Clarke and Jacob Young are now barred from both the pub and its Il Mulino restaurant 'for life’.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak, whose constituency covers Stokesley, is also barred from both.

The restaurant posted on social media: "Don’t usually do politics but here goes….

“I have never known a Government which is consistently the wrong end of every argument.

"Forget the poor handling of covid for a minute and concentrate on what happened yesterday.

"The Government voted against extending free school meals. This is disgusting!

"What’s worse Matt Vickers, Simon Clarke, Jacob Young and Rishi Sunak all voted against the scheme."

The post continued: "DISGUSTING!

"All four are now barred from The Mill and Il Mulino for life.

"I don’t want their business.

“Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week I will deliver 100 freshly cooked healthy meals to three separate food banks in the Middlesbrough area."

Since the vote, restaurants and cafes across the country have offered to feed kids during half term next week.

Manchester United footballer Rashford has been busy sharing their posts.
