    Default Infuriating pub websites

    I am just going through approving some website links. Obviously I get to see thousands of different sites, my favourites are always the ones that keep things simple and have useful information that is easy to get hold of.

    As a good example of one that fails I've just reached this one for the Sun in Hounslow, http://www.thesunpub.co.uk/ - all I can say is someone really had fun building the site but that it isn't terribly helpful.

    Well that is me spanking the monkey for the rest of the afternoon then. I have no idea why that is on their site however.

    Dave, it's awful. At first I just thought it was hideous and then I burst out laughing. Judging by the 'smiley' that looms at you I suspect the designer dropped a couple of e's in the process of building the site. No doubt he thinks it's all frightfully witty.

    I think i can just get there for closing if i set off now.

    Nice spanking Conrad, best i could manage was 336. You are obviously well practiced.

    Absolute Quality. If you ever wanted to keep your pub just for the locals who know it already, then this is the way to do it....

    ....Still lots of slurping going on though, I should imagine.
