Just had our office christmas lunch at a local hostelry. Very nice "proper" food, thick slice turkey, sprouts, roast potatoes, cauliflower and a sausage. No yorkshire puddings though, bit of a shame as I live in Yorkshire! Food was great and prices where reasonable I thought.

Had to use the facilities afterwards and could not believe what I saw. Thought about taking a picture but decided against it in the end.

A line of three stainless steel buckets fixed to a slope on the wall. There was a drain in each bucket, but no flush options and being a pub, not the best of aims going from the marks, stains and flaking paintwork behind them.

Don't think I'll be suggesting we go there again even though it was my suggestion this year.

Is that the modern future of pub facilities, i wonder what the ladies are like, did you inquire or let sleeping dogs lie ?,i have seen some grotty conveniences in my life time from basic painted feet marks on the floor either side of a hole in the floor and flies by the million to a little old lady handing you one sheet of loo paper as you pay to go in.

Floors awash with blocked outlets and the smells Airwick would go bankrupt trying to develop a smell to hide it and i must admit some have been that bad i have found a dark alley or wooded area than be brave enough to venture in past the WC door.

Glad the food was OK though even if there was no Yorkshire pud to be had. [xmas_shocked.gif]

You should see the toilets at the West End theatre's. Seen Aladdin and I don't think they have the urinals flushing as the stench was similar to when you strip the pipes down to be cleaned . As for the Lion King there toilet pans need a really good clean .

We went to a modern pub and it took some explaining to hubby that the battered tables and chairs were meant to look like that and probably cost the pub a fortune. He came out the loo unable to go because the urinals were a pair of cupped porcelain ladies hands complete with nail polish, and he just couldn't go. The girls loo's. Been to some cracking toilets at times, clean and smells nice. But local Weatherspoons is vile. Most people walk the 100yds or so to nearest council loos to use theirs rather than venture in...... is this a ploy by Weathers to reduce their water bill????

I pride myself and team for the cleanliness of our site. I am aware it can be better at times and little things can be missed. It wouldn't pass a Sgt Mjr inspection but on the whole I do have a clean and tidy site.
Some of the local pubs and other public buildings are not a patch and the local hospital (QE Bham) is a sty compared.

YORKSHIRE PUDS FOR CHRISTMAS DINNER !!! [xmas_shocked.gif]

No way on earth is this allowed in my house. I love a Yorkshire pud with beef on a roast but turkey and chicken is a no no. funnily enough I have had this debate recently as so many people have a Yorkshire pub with their Christmas dinner now and I was shocked. I thought turkey and a couple of stuffing's was the way forward

Being a chef in a former life, I was told you can always judge the hygiene standards in a kitchen by the condition of the toilets. [xmas_shocked.gif]

I think that statement should apply every where, bit like the school main entrance that is your first insight into what the school looks like on the inside and if this is clean and tidy the rest probably follows suite. [xmas_grin.gif]
