“WORST PUB EVER VISITED - 15.9.2011”

Written on: 11/09/2011

This is the first pub in Wales I have been too and feel a clear hate for english people. This pub was not interested what so ever in visitors, just locals despite it being a pub on the river. A group of us canoed and camped on a nearby site.
We asked for meals and they clearly wasnt to keen on catering for us despite us calling before hand. The food come out and many of us ordered burgers. As a result we got burgers which were rock hard, on a bun of plain bread no butter, undercooked chips and no salad.
On many occasions we stood at the bar for upto 20 minutes waiting to be served for a local to come in and get served straight away. Sadly we had no choice but to stop there because there are no pubs nearby. At one point when standing near the bar a remark was made by the bar man about welsh culture intended at us. Sadly considering our group consisted of former army, navy and olympic judo professionals we didnt expect to be treated so terribly. Never ever use this pub, it is outdated like the people that work there.
Its quite clear that the pub is being kept alive by its positioning i.e. the river not the food, people or service. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.

Not only is it in England but it sells Doom Bar, a fantastic ale from the south west, and Cornish cod for its fish 'n Chips, which are the best in the Hay-on-Wye area.
