I find it hard to look past The Litten Tree on Old Street
Which is the one on the platform at Kings Cross?
my brother always arranges to meet people visiting him in london in the flying scotsman, tells them just to go in when they get off the train and he'll be waiting for them, quite a good joke, huh
enjoyable fun time actions in both the Worlds End and The Dolphin.
There's one on Bethnal Green road that I suspect may be horrendous, but I've never been in proper because I'm too pussy. It has pictures of dice on the frosted glass windows.
I despise the massive Lloyds Bar in Cardiff. I'm only including it because it has this weird decked-out-like-a-pub thing happening.
What's so terrible about the Litten Tree? Which one is it?
trees= great, and Lit were pretty great for a while too.
Poncy dive. Infact, The Dolphin just down the road might be worse
I'm sure my mate said she was taking me to the dolphin on saturday. could be a different dolphin of course.
So if thats where you are headed, be afraid.
In MYYYyyy opinion
...but google maps says this is near bethnal green. so it probably is this dolphin. what do i have to fear? i might need to mentally prepare myself!
I just think its an absolute dive and really quite depressing. Suppose you might like it though.
it has nice tiles
the friend taking me is likely to be drunk and sleazy. this may explain the choice...
i am fond of nice tiles though!
whether london-based friends have developed smack habit...
cause there are pubs in casablanca where there are NEVER any women, just failed male muzzas
is a shithole. It stinks of vomit through the day before being besieged by chavs and gangstas once the sun goes down. Dump.
The most local pub in all the land. Horrific.
Oh Church have GREZLEY GREZLEY GREZLEY Di man dem in a di party, party, party Di ole a dem sexy, sexy, sexy Watch dem just a follow me, follow me, follow me
wrong with the flying scotter?
of the old-style london variety not many have survived, fair enough if thats your thing though...
been there a few times!
Hanslope, Milton Keynes. Possibly the weirdest pub experience in the land. Looks like a quiet village pub, you get in and it's chock full of underage drinkers, bad fairy lights, rotten wallpaper and bar staff eating fish and chips as they serve you.
and the fattest kid in our year was in there. never liked him.
that Litten tree on Old Steet is a bad one. My friends always watch football in there as it's so close to where they live
should just about cover it
It's bloody terrible but I did love it when I was about 17/18 so for that it gets a smidgen of my respect.
in sheffield, we stepped in an it was like cantina from star wars
If I stepped into a login page I would be vexed, I'll give you that.
Also the Tottenham, opposite Centrepoint.
Parliament Street, Nottingham.
That the one on the square? near the corner of Friar Lane?
seconded completely, atrocious. Wetherspoons in stations are bad enough but this one takes the biscuit!
Up Saffron Hill. I felt like I was going to get mugged on the way to the toilets in there and I hardly dared eat the chips I had ordered 'cos I was convinced I was going to caught something off the sticky bottle of ketchup. Still, I am sure the vinegar in the ketchup killed whatever it might have been :-)
for being incredibly "local" and a haunt of the BNP.
The Globe in Swansea - ditto
The Bryn Y Mor - Full of stupid rugby playing student types and their thick as pig shit, sparkly topped girlfriends.
The Commercial, Killay, Swansea - Not so much bad as so overwhelmingly bland inside that it's actually offensive, that and the regulars are the most boorish bunch of people ever.
The Neptune is full on BNP, but it is not a pub I'd like to go into. I think it's open at 7am nowdays as well.
Any pub that bawsac stefan king owns!
So is the Wetherspoon's King Of The West
I reckon the honour goes to the Wetherspoon's on Romford High Street though. Deeply depressing.
in bethnal green, the place is a hole, i don't know why people like it so much.
the dolphin is equally as bad.
but what's wrong with it?
I thought it was quite nice.
its too small and the last time i went there some pub quiz was going on and i felt really suicidal. i could give it another chance but i don't want to.
What's wrong with pub quiz? Does the thought of general trivia make you want to slit your wrists in a warm bath? Some sort of pub quiz related trauma as a child?
he was really irritating and made me have a shit time.
pass me my noose, nurse
The Wetherspoons in Swadlincote, I think it's called The Sir Nigel Gresley. Either way it's pretty grim.
Too right. However, the pub it was before ('The Granville') was even worse.
It'd take a lot to be worse than that place.
It literally smelt like shit.
olegrich, rapscalion-jones, tom_from_sparks, stealthy and keiths_tele will all back me up.
It used to be the best pub in the world but then it became a Wetherspoons, got bright new furniture and changed its customer base to scumbags :(
I always fail in pairs.
