the hinds head a pub ?
75 pounds for a meal on Valentines day
not my definition of a pub at those prices
Thats the problem, " some of you " until we have a level playing field in the Pub and Club Industry the Closures will continue, a closed down local Pub is no good to anyone. Separate rooms or venues would give Everyone a choice once again, both non smoker and smoker alike, who but the most Intolerant could complain about everyone having the same choice.
Well the top ten pubs in the UK all In England that is not all the Uk what Happend to Wales Ireland And Bonnie Scotland I think your chippie pundits should cast a wider net dont you think so !!!
The top ten happen to be in England although I thought Abergavenny was in wales. So what, it just means that the rest of the UK neds to improve. There are hundreds of pubs serving great food and the judges can't eat in all of them but if I am recomended by someone I know to try a place I will go. If you of a good place tell your friends and get the word spread and maybe next time the judges will hear and go.
Also, the smoking ban was brilliant. I am a non smoker nearing retirement and for years I have been forced to live in other peoples drug smog. (Yes, nicotine is an addictive drug) Now I can see across a room and taste my beer and food...thank god for small mercies.
Carol mac, how often do you go to a pub, I doubt its as often as the people that no longer go to the pub, since this insane smoking ban came into force.
It was those customers who gave the traditional English boozer its world wide reputation
The whole world falling apart and the pub locals, who can still afford an evening’s drinking, have to go out in the cold for a fag.
Stick to mambie pambie wine bars and health clubs, with the rest of the new lower lower middle class.
IMHO the best English-style pub grub in the world can be found in Fidel Murphy's Irish Pub and Restaurant just outside George Town in Grand Cayman.
I haven't found anywhere round where I live in the UK that comes close to matching the quality or the prices. UK pub food is over-priced rubbish.
