The Royal Oak, Bromborough

Called in here with my 90 year old father for a meeting of the Italian Star Association, because The Royal British Legion across the road was undergoing renovations. The members, most of whom fought in the 2nd World War, at Monte Cassino etc; were told that if they were to hold a meeting in the pub it would cost them 60. The pub had benefited from their business on previous occasions. In the end they just had to make do with a chat, without reading out the minutes, having a raffle etc; Makes you proud to be British doesn't it?

The Queens, Wallasey

The last time I visited this pub was 18 months ago when there was one hand pumped bitter available, this time there was none.

I visited the pub on a Friday night with my friends, two Poles and a Welshman. Most of the clientele were as rough as a badger's arse. One of the knuckledraggers at the bar was wearing an English Defence League t shirt. This made myself and my friends feel extremely uncomfortable; consequently we left, and we won't be returning.

If you're a male, white moron with no taste in beer, this might be just the pub for you. Otherwise avoid at all costs.

The White Hart, Whitechapel

I visited this pub on a Saturday night, it was about half full, whilst other pubs in the area were completely full. The reason for this may be that a Jack the Ripper suspect once lived there, although I think he may be still living there, in the form of the landlord/licensee.

When I arrived one young Italian(?) girl was on her own behind the (extremely long) bar, she pulled a pint for me that was slightly short measure, as I felt sorry for her I didn't say anything. After about half an hour the landlord emerged, I ordered another pint from him, and it appeared that he was giving me short measure, so I asked him politely if he could "top it up". He practically jumped down my throat, saying something along the lines of, I decide if it needs topping up. In order to avoid a contretemps, I agreed with him saying "yes, you're right". This wasn't enough though, he then had another go, so this time I said "yes you're right, I apologise".

If you want to run the risk of being snapped at by this unpleasant individual, then visit The White Hart, otherwise avoid at all costs.
