The issue with Dave behind the bar goes back years, but it still needs sorting out as a matter of urgency. Some people might not be able to drink for needical reasons, or may be the driver taking a group to the pub. To refuse service on the request of a glass of tap water as part of a round is not only irresponsible. It is an offence. The only way this man's behaviour will be stopped is if it is made as public as possible. I urge anyone experiencing this in future to record the conversation, or video it. If the round has been poured, and water is refused, simply hold your money until the water is poured. It is a reasonable, lawful request, and remember, the law is on your side as a customer if any threat is made. If Dave foolishly refuses, simply leave. The tap water was part of your order, available free, by law. By not serving it, the pub has not fulfilled your order, and you are under no obligation to pay. And if Dave is reading this: I wish you and the pub no harm. It's a place I have drunk in before the days of BITE. To help a customer who needs a glass of water as part of his or her round will cost you nothing, and will do great things for you and the pub's reputation. Reflect on the benefits you will reap from keeping your drinkers happy, and spending money in your pub, and look forward to the day all these unnecessary complaints stop, and you are no longer the focus of people's criticism. Of course it is your absolute right to choose the alternative, if you believe it's worth it.

The fact that rubbish posted by bees4evva is allowed to stay on for more than 5 minutes tells you that BITE no longer cares for accuracy or indeed any of the pubs listed, unless they pay a hefty registration fee. BITE's owners gave up two or three years ago and you can no longer add new pubs, report closures or name changes etc as you can do on professionally managed sites. This is a sad state of affairs, but if you wish to know where to find a decent pint and/or a tasty bite you would be far better off using pubsgalore, pubsandbeer, ratebeer and maybe simply google. Whilst BITE continues to display the nonsense reviews it does, and not to care tuppence about pubs, accuracy of information or even its own loyal decent usership, it is placing itself out of the running as a reliable site. What a great pity.
