I did wonder how much notice large pub chains take of Trip Advisor and its reviews. I had visited the Butley Ash back in January and I, along with others around that time, slated it.
I had noted that all the recent reports were good or very good. So had things really improved? Well, I believe everyone deserves a second chance and so, when I was nearby, I popped in for some grub. It was excellent! The food was spot on, the service was great. The beer was great. I couldnt fault the experience.
I conclude that Trip Advisor does play an vitally important part in consumerism. I doubt that without those bad reports Chef and Brewer would have improved their act so drastically. Well done to the Butley Ash and well done to Trip Advisor! That is another watering hole I visit whilst I am out "roving"!
