Profile information

As my name implies. Always willing to cast a critical eye on all about me, to comment in negative and positive terms. Open to new ideas as long as it doesn't involve baseball caps, men with pierced ears, lound tuneless music, pool tables, 'girlie' larger, alchopops, tv in pubs, loutish behaviour, men with shaved heads wearin 'En-ger-lan' shirts etc. Otherwise I'm really quite a reasonable chap

The Britannia Arms, Monterey

Had an utterley splendid evening here in April of this year. Ambiance was good and Guinness even had a Shamrock in the head.
The food was excellent and the service was attentive without being servile.
Sadly, I've heard that this place has "gone bust".
Is this true? - If so, what a shame!

The Crooked Billet, Leigh on Sea

Called in for luncheon yesterday - unable to book as phone does not take incoming calls!
Good selection of real ales; settled on a pint of Adnams followed by London Pride.
Lunch was an ample sufficiency although the service was diabolical. Three bar staff who seemed to double as waiting staff did their best. Suspect the hold-up ws in the tiny kitchen. When it came it was good.
Perhaps they should operate a restricted menu on Sunday - possibly offering only a choice of Sunday Roasts?
Will visit again but probably not on a Sunday

Vauxhall Inn, Tonbridge

Potential goldmine but restricted by pettiness! NO bar tab (Even if you're eating) in the garden - offer of credit card refused. "not allowed to do that!".
Beer ok though but staff sullen and oppressed.
