Steve, you’re dead right- so many pubs are a no- no, even getting in and out of the building can be an issue. One of our local pubs, when asked about wheelchair access, said, ‘oh yes, there’s a door round the back we can get him in’. What they didn’t say was this would mean going in via the kitchens, having first negotiated two tight right angled bends and a couple of narrow doors, plus sundry mops, buckets, brooms, crates of veg, rubbish bins etc. classy!
In defence of some of the pubs out here in rural North Bucks / South Northants, they are listed buildings and can’t instal adapted toilets or change entrances. Seems a bit daft though, where the building is deemed more important than the customers!
Wetherspoons get a lot of things right- decent beer, no piped music, reasonable food.
