    Default Review tips

    Just remembered I meant to do this today. I am thinking that above the review we have something about "see review tips" and when clicked on it a drops a list of tips on what improves a review. My starter for ten.

    • Mention what the pub serves: Real Ale, Food?
    • Did you notice any facilities/problems for access?
    • Was the pub friendly to children and/or pets?
    • If you are leaving a rating, please mention what added or lost the pub points?
    • Would you go back to the pub?
    • Was there a nice selection of decorative twigs?
    • If you are employed by the pub, please mention your interest.

    What are peoples feelings on this, any improvements to phrasing and other suggestions?

    Pub reviews might also include:
    The general ambience/welcome (or lack of)/volume that Motorhead is played on the juke box.
    Open all day every day or just when the gaffer can be bothered?
    Modern/contemporary/traditional/dilapidated.
    Number and type of public rooms.
    Cleanliness - of bar/toilets/barmaid's fingernails.
    Beer garden/patio/yard/pavement.
    Price guide
    Access in terms of public transport/car parking/remoteness
    Anything that makes the pub different from most other places
    Oh, and does it serve the best Carling for miles around

    One other tip: avoid using text-speak

    Oh Well alright, but only if you really insist..

    I have a few reams of second rate printer paper in the cupboard. I may run off a template and print some mystery drinker type questionnaires, then attach them to my long redundant management style ( leather bound and a holder for the ballpen ) clipboard. This will be far more obvious than my normal way of reviewing by scribbling notes in the margin of the Daily Mail Coffee Break pages. What was done by subterfuge will now have to be done by having a brass neck and bags of over confidence. One would have to introduce yourself to the management. Pub customers are far more eagle eyed than your average Tesco or Morrisons shopper, so soon mutterings about your behavior would reach the Boss's ears. A third degree may follow ( violence is optional at this point ) as to your motives and remember people tend to believe the worse of their fellow man.

    Being allergic to bruises and pain I think I will leave the paper and clipboard where they are and retain the Daily Mail approach and the disguise of a manic eccentric who is harmless if left alone.Sorry Conrad you will just have to remain in the dark about whether children are catered for or are part of the catering produce.

    PS I have only just realised The Rose and Crown , Bromyard has a bad outbreak of twigs in its internal decor.

    That's fine as a review comment - I don't think that twigs have ever taken offence, become violent or brought a libel case
    Waes hael!

    I'm not sure about that - I've often heard say that things can be better than 'a poke in the eye with a sharp stick', so they obviously have a history of mischief which people still talk about...
