"We are talking about the Black Lion in Althorne?? We went in here for a change for our usual Thursday Meal (5 of us, 3females, 2males aged between 20-63)... my friends JD & Coke didn't taste right so I politely explained this to the guy behind the bar who'd just opened up. He was a bit rude but he changed the glass and said that was the problem. My friend tried it and it still tasted funny so I asked if she wanted me to ask if she could change drinks which she did. I went back to the man and said 'I'm sorry but it still doesn't taste right, could she swop it for a WKD'... he took the glass, slammed it down, got a WKD and grunted. He proceeded to check the glass looking at it, holding it in the air while swearing under his breath!! He started slamming things and continued making sarcastic comments and using foul language - intimidating us.
We weren't acting rude or like yobs etc. We were polite and just wanted to sit down for a quiet meal... this man was appalling, needless to say we quickly finished our drinks and left, heading towards The Huntsman. I will also add he followed us out of the pub continuing to intimidate us....
I don't know if he was drinking or he'd had a bad day but he wasn't a nice character AT ALL... a waste of time and money...
Strongly advise you stay away.. but maybe its just strangers that aren't welcome???? "
