user reviews of John Gilpin, Ware

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

In case you could not deduce it from the other most recent comment, this pub is closed, and it ain't reopening,

I won't say, "I told you so"........yes I will, "I told you so".
Poor choice of beer and few customers equals pub closure.

McMullen say they closed the Gilpin to concentrate on the Chadwell Springs golf project (that is at least a year away from completion).
How will closing a pub in Ware help build a golf club? (More likely closed to be sold for housing.)

Why not close another Mac's pub in Ware, say, the Cannons Tavern?.........Doh! They have.

Not much has changed since my last review over two years ago.
Still a few people in for Saturday lunch, still 2 - 4 - 1, but no longer just a couple of real ales to choose from. "Hooray" I hear you shout, "they have listened to 'fugglehops' and put on an extra ale". Wrong. There is one less now, only AK was available.
Mind you, I was the only one disappointed as the other 'blokes' were drinking lager.

Surely a pub's first priority must be to offer a reasonable choice of real ale for its customers. If other pubs adopted this, Mac's run establishment, policy, breweries will be a thing of the past in years to come. Someone sort out the management, please.

Called in here for a Saturday lunch time meal. Very quiet with only half a dozen customers. Not much has changed over the last few years, still quiet, clean, friendly and.......quiet.
Beg your pardon there was one change; they now have a 2 - 4 - 1 menu. A couple of us had the rump steak, garnished with chips, peas, onion rings and a tomato, all for under a tenner.The food came very quickly - mind you, it was quiet. Apart from the steak being a little bit chewy it tasted ok and was served on a warm plate - which always helps.
One thing that has definitely not changed and that is the choice of real ale. Did I not mention this is a MuckMullen's pub? Three hand pumps serving the ever present AK along with Cask Ale.
The third pump was not in use (it's probably rigged up to another barrel of All Sorts....... I mean AK).Come on Macs, give us more choice and I don't mean Country Best Bitter. Start allowing Guest beers from micro-breweries and this decent pub might, just might, not be so quiet.

Quite nice as a lunchtime pub. Food is reasonably priced and pretty good. Typical McMullens pub; good selection of lagers, AK and Country Best the only ales on tap. Staff are friendly.
