HEREFORD'S popular the Beefy Boys burger restaurant has said James Corden is still "banned" as it adds another 20 to its barred list.

After the Gavin and Stacey star was banned from a New York restaurant for allegedly being rude to staff, the burger restaurant in the Old Market Shopping Centre followed suit.

It joked on Facebook that Corden was banned, not because he had done something wrong, just that the firm didn't find him funny.

That post went viral, attracting 34,000 reactions, 3,500 comments at 1,300 shares.

But one comment defended Corden, accusing The Beefy Boys of "bullying".


But in response, the award-winning restaurant said: "It was a joke based off a recent news story to make some of our customers chuckle.

"Of course, he’s not really banned. Sorry if it upset you no offence intended."

Sharing a picture of the front page of the Hereford Times, which featured the light-hearted story, the Beefy Boys joked Corden was still banned as the firm "isn't mad".

It then added another 20 people, or groups of people, to its barred list.

It now includes Russian president Vladimir Putin, Harry Potter's Lord Voldermort, comic supervillain Lex Luther and People who have ketchup with roast dinners.

Moaners, lollygaggers (people who dawdle), the entire cast of BBC sitcom Mrs Browns Boys and "that kid that borrowed my copy of Mario Kart in year 8 and never gave it back" are now also barred.

Interior designer and TV presenter Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, the UK's shortest-serving Prime Minister Liz Truss and "the bad CGI Sonic The Hedgehog" are now also no longer welcome.

The Beefy Boys has also banned the writers of the last episode of TV drama Game of Thrones, anyone that says “doggos” for dogs and Tim Martin, "that bloke that owns Wetherspoons".


People that don’t wave back when you let them through in your car, Thanos from Marvel, Hans Gruber from film Die Hard, Skeletor from the Masters of the Universe franchise, Grotbags from the 1990s children's TV show and singer Bono are also now all banned.

The Beefy Boys began as four amateur cooks who shared a passion for American-style burgers and BBQ, eventually entering the 2014 Grillstock competition in Bristol where they won the best burger.

The restaurant went on to represent the UK in 2015, at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, where they finished 2nd out of 50 burgers.
