@Posty I had to go dig this one up, for the Angler's Tavern.
Review describes how they overserved someone who fell over a fence and drowned, and the family not being allowed to leave a cross on the bank of the river in memorial and yet still gives it 2 stars.
The food must have been amazing.
My suspicion is that an IPA knob-end has got to him (a local one went there the day after the incident in question to make a big show of snowflakes or some garbage I can’t even remember. But I doubt some old, random servo owner is online enough to get upset about some toots).
@MattHatton @mike @Posty my goodness I didn’t realise this was the same Red Nude Dude. From professional experience alas I know that petrol station consolies are hard put upon, because the managers and franchisees of petrol stations are some of the worst people in the world, and worst in the Australian economy of franchiseeing, that’s worst
@MattHatton @mike @Posty the margins are so low in the industry that the only way any owner can make a living is by stealing from someone. Usually it’s the wages of the consolies, sometimes it’s suppliers, which was where I (stocktaker, age 20) came in, and I dreaded service stations because they were haunted by violent, paranoid people
You can spot the consolies because they do the sensible thing and hand over the cash. Owners are the ones weirdly proficient in wielding heavy objects in a manner that quickly incapacitates the man wearing his girlfriends stockings.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
