vile staff
I went to the black boy in killay on the 14th of may 2008. My husband purchased drinks from the bar and ordered our food (a burger and barbequed chicken with cheese and bacon with a side of fries and salad)
The bar staff and waitresses were very pleasant and helpfull and I could not fault them.
However, when my husband returned with our drinks, which consited of jackdaniels and coke and a pint of beer, I noticed a strange taste to my whisky. I m quite into sampling my whiskeys, and to me, the whiskey I had did not taste like jack daniels, in fact it tasted like cheap house whiskey. I discussed this quietly and privately with my husband, even though there were no tables behind or to the side of us. There were however a couple sitting in the far corner, that over heard what I was saying privately to my husband. Within minutes the lady had beelined for our table and processed to publically slander myself and embarrass me. This turned out to be the landlady. I thought it was highly rude of her to listen into a private conversation, and then publically embarrass me in front of the rest of the patrons for simply commenting to my husband that the drink tasted funny. Needless to say, I felt very uncomfortable throughout the whole of my meal which was may I add, absoloutly vile and overpriced. The bacon was burnt, the chicken had salt spilled on it and was swimming in cheesy grease.
When I was about to leave, I calmly approached the landlady and told her that she was out of order speaking to me like that when I was having a private conversation with my husband, and the fact that I was a customer. Her husband and herself both became abusive and physical, and I informed them that I will not be returning. If I did not threaten police action, I do believe they would have attempted to cause us harm.
A pub to be severely avoided, very over priced. The owners are abusive and violent, physically aswell as verbally and they put house whiskey in branded whiskey bottles
