    Default Worst Pub Of 2015

    With my glass half empty view on life, I'm delighted to kick off this thread. I will try and get around to keep updated a Hall Of Shame for 2015 at the end of the thread.
    For once it's not a Spoons from me but a GBG entry with a reputation, I can't actually think of a disastrous Spoons visited last year.
    My worst pub of 2015 is the Port Street Beer House. It's a small run of the mill shop conversion with a selection of all sorts of beers. I was served a warm pint of sludge for £4.20 and had to ask for it to be topped up. Some people seem to have fared better but I certainly wouldn't go back to see if it had improved.

    Unsurprisingly for me, a Wetherspoons ,of course I may be biased.

    The Fruit Bat in Reading for me, followed swiftly by the clutch of poor offerings in Stanwell just outside Heathrow, of which you can take your pick!

    My first visit with my son in 2012 was fine ,reviewed with an 8 but a revisit in 2014 by four of us,including Mr Phat doing the review, encountered similar problems.Just very inconsistent ???

    I doubt if anyone's been back!
    Is that your nomination for 2015? It needs to have been visited.

    My Berks 100% Challenge saw me go in some awful places this year, but pride of place goes to The Merrymakers - a classic of the estate pub genre.

    A shout also to Rackstraw Farm which ran it close.
