    Default I Don't Wear Tweed Jackets - or YUK!

    I too saw the riposte from Doug Middleton (now deleted) to Alan W's review of the Dog and Fox in Wimbledon.

    This was from somebody who was on their first trip to the UK and I guess had been in 5 or 6 Wimbledon pubs and presumed to tell Alan (who has been in considerably more pubs than that!) what constitutes a good pub! I've been in the Dog & Fox and although I don't agree with Alan that it's the worst pub in Wimbledon (the Fire Stables gets that accolade - the only Young's pub that doesn't sell real ale, and which even I haven't yet steeled myself to go in and review; and even Strongers hasn't been in it!) it's not good.

    And he talks about "beautiful people" in there - this where the Yuk! comes in. And cheap prices! in Wimbledon Village! You must be joking!

    As well as accusing Alan of being an accountant (the mind boggles) he also reckons he has something called a pocket saver. I've no idea what a pocket saver is, but I'm willing to bet that Alan hasn't got one!

    It's a bit of a shame that we can't keep these ridiculous postings just to remind us just what sort of stuff we are missing from Another Place!

    The pocket saver thing confused me too, I guess he meant this. Not quite sure what the relevance is though.

    I didn’t read the review before it was deleted but I guess that this bloke is calling Al tight (accountant and cheap deal magazine).
    I’m not sure why though as Al hasn’t mentioned the price of drinks in his review.

    Regarding the post that as been deleted i did'nt like anything he said about me,i have nothing against accountants but i am not one, i have always worked in heavy industry,the tweed jacket jibe really bugged me i have never worn a tweed jacket and i am very working class and down to earth.

    In my review i said this was the worst pub i had been in on my crawl around Wimbledon not the worst pub in Wimbledon.

    Regarding saving reviews like this, i seem to attract more than my fair share of these types of reviews some i dont report but this one did wind me up and i am pleased that Conrad and Dave deleted it so quickly.

    I really wouldn't worry Alan, it's given us all a good chuckle. Most of us know what one-drop reviewers are all about.

    Have you not considered a tweed jacket, maybe with a spotted bow tie then?

    I have been seen wearing a tweed jacket. Sometimes I wear a burgundy bow tie.
