In response to the previous review, I was also present on said evening. The review writer shouted at the local customer who had a much much smaller dog than hers. She was frankly embarrassing. The customer in question has been a regular at the skimmington for as long as I can remember! He is a charming, outgoing, salt of the earth gent who owns numerous customer service based business in the local area and employs over 60 local people and I feel for an individual to be victimised publicly is unacceptable, notwithstanding the fact this has absolutely nothing to do with the establishment. I and my friends always enjoy our visits to the skim, it is a fabulous local pub serving great food and the landlady does certainly not deserve a bad review. This feels like a personal attack on an individual rather than any reflection on the pub itself!
