How to Write a Pub Review

The pub is a British institution where the community gathers to meet and relax with friends. The establishments can be age-old, with a strong drinking heritage, or brand new bars serving cutting-edge cocktails. What they all have in common is amazing beverages, brilliant staff and a buzzing atmosphere.

Pubs differ from restaurants in the fact that they offer a more elaborate and filling menu, usually including traditional dishes such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, Sunday roast, steak and ale pie or ploughman’s lunch. Pubs can also serve a wide selection of drinks including beer, cider, wine and soft drinks such as pop, tea or coffee.

A good pub review is an objective one, highlighting the pros and cons of the place. It is important to include details such as whether you like the food, if it is expensive or not, what kind of atmosphere and environment it has and how it matches your tastes. It is also a good idea to make a recommendation, as people are looking for advice on what to order and where to go.

To publish your review, click on the ‘Publish’ button in the top right-hand corner. You will then need to choose a title for the Review, a summary (this is what will be shown on aggregators and search engines) and if applicable, a recommendation (this is optional). Once you have completed these fields, you can preview how the review will be deposited with Crossref before you submit it.
