    Mr Whites Bar & Grill

    Gushing review by first time poster, just 3 days after pub was described as "soulless" by Al with 554 reviews under belt

    The first timer raves about Carling, and Carling cider, which is enough for most to avoid the place I would have thought

    I assume most readers will see the second review it for what it is

    Another gushing review after a review by ROB Camra last year, who found it full of knobheads

    Any ideas on what a 'swinging chicken kebab' is. The effect on your bowels after you've eaten it perhaps?

    I believe you can get a kebab served on a frame from which the skewer dangles above your plate. I'm not sure what the point of this is, or how practical it is to eat the thing. To be honest, your definition probably applies as well!

    Edit: Just found a picture of one: http://cltampa.com/binary/e4c9/food_feature1-1_16.jpg

    Woodhall Arms

    Maybe in wrong forum, but as it is the only review maybe not
    Precise and to the point, 10/10 of course, at least one assumes he walked in the door

    Sounds like he may have walked back out of it with her to me.

    A glowing report from Emily Ovenden ,a 10/10 no less, if you look at the first comment on their Facebook page in April 2014 ,just look who's preparing to take over the pub, what a coincidence.

    Default The Bletchingley Arms

    How thoughtful for the lady who writes much of the promotional blurb on the Bletchingley Arms website found the time to leave us a 'review' for the pub as well. However, at least she uploaded a recent photograph showing the change of name...
