A review of R-Bar by Abc written on Wednesday 24th of October 2012
Me: Excuse me, the cocktails are BOGOF aren't they?
Me: Do you have to both have the same?
Barman: Nope, mix and match.
...I wait for my turn to be served...
Me: One of these, and one of these, please.
Barmaid: If you buy two of the same, it'll be buy one get one free.
Me: But he said... oh never mind, go on, make it two of them, thanks.
...Barmaid makes drinks...
...Barmaid shoves hand out asking for payment...
...I give her a fiver....
Barmaid: No, that'll be £7.50. Cocktails are £4.99, Two Cocktails are £7.50
Me: Aren't they BOGOF?
Me: but... hang on... oh don't worry.
...I hand over extra £2.50...

Me: Excuse me, this really tastes like pineapple juice
Barmaid: Yeah, and what?
Me: It doesn't say that anywhere on the menu and my girlfriend wouldn't've ordered one if it did,

Can't remember what. Then for the rest of the time in there, she was standing behind the bar, smirking at my girlfriend, and whispering to her colleague..
