My partner and I went to visit family in December 2012 and they suggested that we ate at the 'The Two Brewers' as it was their local and thought very highly of the place. On the outside, it looked like a traditional English pub. We entered the pub and again, we thought the place looked nice. We were shown to our seats by the waitress, i don't remember her name, but she was very professional. The menu is laid like a newspaper, i thought this was a very quirky idea. However I was expecting the menu to be the 'Daily Sport' of menus where there would be a lot of different meals i would like to try. It actually turned out to be the financial times. The menu was so boring. I ended up choosing from the specials board. The food was very reasonably priced, there was just nothing appealing. Not even the pub classic of 'The Burger'. Now while i was choosing from the specials board (chalk board) I noticed that the writing was as a slant and there was a noticeable gap between two words. But as this was a 'county pub' i thought it added to the appeal-not everything has to be even, not everything has to be perfect. Anyway, the food came pretty quickly, which ties in with their slogan something like 'we don't do fast food, we do good food as soon as we can' basically what you find in every local pub/restaurant. Now the food was good and it was fast so they have accomplished that. But that's all it was, good. Half way through our meal, the manager came out. We didn't see him at first, but you could definitely hear him. He clearly wanted everyone in the pub to know that he was the manager, ordering his staff around loudly. I tried to ignore but the way he was speaking to his staff was diabolical. The icing on the cake was when he noticed the gap between the words. He hit the Roof! he literally picked the waitress up by her shoulders and stood her in front of the sign. He was ranting and raving about how massive this space was etc etc... At this point i was ready to go. He snatched the wet cloth out of her hands, wiped it clean and demanded she did it again. I felt so sorry for her. Sorry for the Essay, just wanted to share my experience.
Positives- Food was okay, Prices were good, good service from Waitress
Negatives- Menu was bland and small, Manager ruined the night
