I tend not to eat out at pubs because I am usually disappointed at best.
Yesterday I was out with SWMBO and was running late. 4pm and had not eaten lunch.
I weakened and called in to a Carvery pub
The type with 3 meats and all the trimmings at $10 a piece.
I'll not even talk about the food. They put 90% into presentation and 10% into taste.
I looked at the bar, no hand pumps but they had 3 shelves of bottled beers. Standard stuff, OSH, Old peculiar and IPA.
I ordered an OP.
"We don't do it."
"But you have a shelf full"
"Oh! they are just for display."
"Fcuk it, I'll have Water"
"No need to swear sir"
"Just get me the water please"
"Sparkling or Still sir"
Lucky in the UK such service does not demand a tip
I couldn't fetch myself to finish my food!
I Must not be lazy!
