How to Write a Pub Review

The pub, with its elaborate social ritual and animated conversations – at least in the North of England – its songs and week-end comedians, is dying out, replaced largely by cinema and radio. This is not just a result of persecution by Nonconformist Town Councils, or rearmament-induced increases in the price of’mild’, but a wider trend away from creative communal amusements towards solitary mechanical ones.

When writing a review, focus on the food, service, and ambience. A general statement like “The food was awesome!” or “The steak sucked” isn’t helpful to the reader or the restaurant. And, if something went wrong, mention how the staff made it right. For example, if your steak was overcooked but the server immediately whisked it away and brought you a med-rare, don’t leave a bad review.
