Just had a good laugh reading some of the old reviews of the Burrington Inn. Either 1 star or 5 star!
I'd have given it 1 star first time I visited, expecting a pub, but once I realised it was a cafe with beer, I thought the place was great. Sure it was a bit tired and run down and the service was sometimes a bit slow, but the location was great, the food was decent and cheap and the staff were great too. Clearly those that got it
, liked it and those that couldn't see past the 1970's decor were never going to be won over, much like Bernies I guess...
Anyway, having just seen who's taken it over, I shall have to pay a visit next time I'm passing*
* to caveat that, I'll stop in next time I'm passing during opening hours, as I doubt they'll be open tomorrow night after digging
