Bakehouse, Welwyn Garden City

Tried this pub a few nights back as we were meeting friends who live in WGC, place was heaving at 7pm, we got a table for four cleared and wiped down no problem, the fun started when himself went to the bar, I watched him wait behind several other bods then the whole queue being usurped by a young lassie who the barmaid had seen arrive last, a loud "excuse me love, there's a queue here!" soon sorted matters, the server however never commented much less apologised. She then took the order from the next lady in line, took the cash, and gave no drinks! The lady obviously thought it was table service, when she asked if that was the case the response was a sullen "well it can be I guess" Most of the bar staff (with the exception of a gem called Stewart) seem to be trained to deliberately avoid all eye contact and to never acknowledge anyone waiting, our group made three trips to the bar and we all got similar treatment. Good points were a bright smiling waitress and ... erm ....
The food was mediocre at best, microwave in a pouch curries and a chewy chicken breast dish, like Wetherspoons food but not as well done. Priced appropriately but Welwyn has way better places than this, Marstons do themselves no favours at all here. Avoid.

The Rocket, Euston

Used this place once and never will again. Mid afternoon, place was quiet, ordered food, was clearly an inconvenience for the glowering female-type thing behind the bar, drinks were slopped onto the bar a couple of yards from where we stood, food when it arrived was awful, greasy and cold chips, rubber burger, and a curry that looked like it had been eaten already. I had the cheek to ask for salt after hunting round all the tables nearby, the response was a snarled "it's all on the tables" when I politely pointed out that the pots were actually all pepper she slammed down the glass she was holding and stormed off, located salt from god knows where and banged it on our table as hard as she could. Needless to say we didn't stay, and didn't bother asking for a manager either, just knew there'd be no point. As we left, my partner poured the flat lifeless lager we'd been served into the curry, it made a nicely brimming plate of unspeakable looking slop. Good luck picking that up love! We never normally behave like that but hey, you reap what you sow.

The Dolphin, Kings Cross

This used to be where my workplace had its gatherings, I went along twice (I never learn!) dear god, where to start?? Sticky floor, sticky bar, a selection of glowering mono-browed locals and being charged a different (escalating) price for the same round each time! Final straw was when a double vodka appeared in a round (nobody was drinking it in my group) and when it was pointed out to the young man serving me his response was a lightning-quick "oh well, I'll have it then!" and it was down his neck before you could blink!
However, thems the bad old days and now we all drink in the Skinners round the corner!
