A restaurant, The Old Butcher’s, in Bristol, UK, has got revenge on a disgruntled customer who left a heated review on TripAdvisor, by naming a cocktail in his honor, of course.
The harsh criticism of The Old Butcher’s in Bristol, posted a review on 31 July under the name “Wayne S”.
His first remark was focused on the bar’s choice of glassware, which he found to be somewhat pretentious. Wayne S. wrote that the bar served its beers in “poncey” two-third pint glasses. “What’s wrong with pints ffs??” opined Wayne. Clearly he is a man who does not like change, or anything too flashy.
“The owner struts about in dungarees, and if he has the chance to check his reflection he damn well makes sure he does,” writes Wayne. “Would I eat there? Never, only had crab on the menu anyway!?” Wayne adds.
Okay, Wayne, we get it. This place just clearly isn’t for you.
“Would I drink there again? Never. Would I recommend it? Only to those who want to be soooo hip (like the owner thinks he is) that they want to watch the traffic go by in this rather grey and drab area of town,” he continues.
Thankfully for us, the bar took Wayne’s words without blinking, and came back with a the best retaliation ever.
“Wayne’s inspiring words have won him a place on our menu; congratulations Wayne! We are therefore proud to introduce our new cocktail, for a limited time only, “The Ponce’s Dungarees!” This coming from The Old Butcher’s Facebook page
Customers have been uploading photos of themselves drinking the cocktail in “solidarity” with the restaurant. Together we can stop assholes like Wayne S. from hating on places that are just for him. All because you don’t like something does not mean it sucks, maybe you suck, Wayne S.
According to a spokesperson for The Old Butcher’s, they say,
[they’ve been] “Totally blown away by the initial response…We hope to see you soon in our grey and drab area of town”
Wayne has since removed his review from the TripAdvisor site, and it’s a shame he will not be going back and drinking the drink that was named in his honor.
