Worst pub in UK
This is, without any doubt, the worst pub I have ever had the misfortune to visit.

We were taken there by a relative for lunch on a Saturday because the pub had put an advert in the local paper offering good food and a free bottle of wine.

when we got there we were struck by the car park, which had one car.

on entering, the stink of stale beer was overpowering in the empty bar.

the dining room was less revolting, but was no more welcoming, with two miserable other customers picking at their food when we arrived.

the five of us ordered our food. the waitress repeatedly asked us over and over what we wanted. she almost got it right.

the chef did not.

Our two steak and ale pies were totally INEDIBLE. They were burnt so badly that not only was the crust a black layer of ash, (which i was prepared to eat anyway) but the filling tasted like the chef had poured several sponnfuls of soot into it and added a lump of coal for good measure

I have NEVER sent back anything in a pub or restaurant in my life. I usually just grin and bear it. (and i have never felt the need to complain on a website either)

But this was the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted.

The chips we got with all our meals were practically raw.

the chicken like rubber.

the two other customers walked out without eating their food, and, I hope, without paying.

we were charged for it all, and did we get an apology from anyone?

no, on the contrary, we were met with cold threatening stares from the chef who we found smoking at the bar when we came to pay the bill. the manager did nothing other than argue that i should pay for the food i had not, could not eat.

The icing on the cake was that they only too cash!

It was a surreal experience.

A word of warning: NEVER VISIT THIS PUB. NOT EVEN FOR A DRINK.

you may not make it out alive.
