    Default What Pub Rip Off

    After looking at some pubs in SE1 for a London crawl i had a look at this pub The Grand Union

    Rex reviewed the pub in late 2013, What Pub claims to have reviewed the pub on 5/2/14,but the short review they do of the pub contains parts of

    Rex's longer review to the word.

    I wonder if they are ripping off any more Pubs Galore reviews.

    I wonder if Rex is a CAMRA member who has donated reviews and pictures to WhatPub as well as PuG? I know I have provided the same pictures and almost the same reviews to both sites.

    A bit cheeky, unless Rex wrote the what pub himself?

    I know that Rex's pic of the Rochester Castle Spoons in Stoke Newington is the same as the one on Whatpub. I would be very surprised if Whatpub did blatantly steal his review. I use both sites as Whatpub usually has the opening hours and have gladly assisted Whatpub when I can. I'm certain I saw something in the forum about Rex going to a CAMRA meeting, something I'm sure he wouldn't put himself through unless he was a CAMRA member!

    Thanks MM. You're right, they didn't rip me off - I have provided loads of stuff to WhatPub, including The Grand Union that Alan mentioned.

    You're right Alan, my branch is SW London, but you can provide input to any branch on their pubs and the branch then uploads it to WhatPub as long as they agree with what you are saying. As you know I go to pubs all over London.
