Possibly a bit 'local' and the outside bit always seems to be in the shade?!
The nasty landlady now works in the 'famous olde pines' in winton

When I entered, the atmosphere wasn't "pleasant and friendly" as I had read on the board outside. The room was absolutely full of smoke from end to end and everyone was far too drunk and messing about.
When I asked for an alcoholic drink and was unable to provide the required ID, I asked politely if any other IDs would be acceptable apart from standard driving licence/passport. They said no. Fair enough.
I was hoping they would offer me a non-alcoholic drink as an alternative and politely usher me out to the beer garden (where minors are allowed to tread).
No such luck: -
Firstly, the barlady who was awaiting an order from another man started joking with him about my inability to produce ID (she said "good thing he (me) wasn't in the queue before you" and laughed). Then she instantly called the landlady without offering any standard fizzy/juice drink.
Secondly, the landlady rudely jibed "there's the door - get out!" and pushed me out of the door with the help of a barman.

Aside from this, I've noticed that there are no clear signs outside to show that the pub is strictly over 18s throughout or a friendly doorman to do ID checks.

I'm absolutely disgusted at the way they treated me and I'm not going back until they sort out the situation.

They really ought to clean up their act or risk losing customers.
