The pub near me serve their burgers/steaks on a wooden slab, so basically a wooden plate. Bit weird, but at least it still works.

strawberry floating hell :dread: :lol:

Place across the road from serves food in what I can only describe as wooden cat litter trays. It really puts you off your food eating from them, a strawberry floating wooden slimey box that you just know had someone else's food in it a few hours before.

Went for a really nice pub meal by us at Christmas and the state of the cheesecake when it turned up had my Mrs taking photos of my face looking at it in disgust. It was supposed to be a baileys cheesecake but it was just a plate with a big smear of cream across.it in an ark, some runny baileys, a pile of crumbs on one side and a pile of chocolate chips on the other. Apparently it was a deconstructed cheesecake. It's just a regular pub too so I don't know where that hipster bollocks came from.

One of my pubs also served food on slates and tiny portions too, it takes the piss. I think that management went under though.

That is because the Snowdrop is for the most part a faddy overpriced dick of a pub.

The landlord of my local pub would tell you to strawberry float off if you wanted anything more fancy than a bag of Walkers crisps.

The minimum I expect from a pub is Mcoys, none of this Walkers nonsense.

But they have Seacider. It's changed management endlessly over the last 10 years or so but I like the atmosphere when it's not too busy, usually outside though. Apparently the last management almost cleared out the pub, it was one of the big pub management firms.

There aren't any pubs here I particularly like.

Greene King took Harvey's off the tap completely at the Lewes Arms when they took over. Oh how that went down well. Yeah, just try not offering locals the beer that is literally brewed down the strawberry floating road. :fp:

It is a good place and Tony has done a good job it just cost too shitting much. There Lewes arms is an odd pub I quite like it but it is odd.

If it makes you feel any better, a colleague walked in to a shop on a whim this morning and picked up a switch, pro controller, case and zelda with no preorder.

People that say they're going to do something and then don't strawberry floating do it. It drives me crazy. You are wasting my time & do it more than once and I'll never forgive you for it. I never do this to people. The worst one are those that make the suggestion to you in the first place & then themselves don't follow through on the commitment. I do especially love the 'we should go for a drink sometime' from people you haven't seen in donkey's years. It goes in one ear and out the other these days because I know full well they've suggested something they're completely and utterly full of gooseberry fool on.

I think people do the "we should go for a drink sometime" thing because it's less awkward and final than verbally acknowledging that there's nothing really holding the illusory "friendship" together.

But then there are those that continue the charade!

'I'm free on Tuesday at 7'. 'Yeah, we can do that' I'll go. Tuesday rolls around and like clockwork the inevitable 'Oh...you wouldn't believe it...but my cat has climbed up a tree, set herself on fire, and burnt down the whole neighbourhood. I'll have to pass.'

[3 years later]

'We should really go for a drink sometime'

How about you strawberry float OFF.
