The Wheatsheaf, Brading

Quite basic, but good, friendly, honest service. We went in there when we had to wait for a cab to take us back to where we were staying, after having been refused a second drink at the Bugle Inn down the road, who were shutting a good ten minutes before closing time, and whose manager was very hostile and abrupt. The other punters were friendly, and the barman here certainly made us feel much more welcome than the manager at the Bugle Inn had!

The Bugle Inn, Brading

A ghastly pub. Huge, soulless, almost completely empty at 9.45 on a Sunday night. We were greeted by the smell of stale meat as we entered, but we had to have a drink as we needed to ring for a cab to take us back to where we were staying, a couple of miles away.

The worst thing was the attitude of the woman behind the bar (presumably the manager), who refused to serve us a second drink at 10.20pm, saying that they were closed, in a very hostile manner. We were hoping to stay for 10 minutes, plus the statutory 20 minutes drinking up time, before we had to leave. Her explanation for the abrupt closing time was that "We're not a pub, we're a restaurant, so we don't have to keep those hours". Funny, that, as it's called an inn, and says it's a pub outside! We then left and got a drink in at the more basic, but much more friendly, pub up the road. Have you ever heard of customer service, Bugle Inn?
