The Feathers Hotel, Ludlow

Shameful manipulation of scores by the owner. My 0/10 should redress the balance abit :)

Earl of Mercia, Coventry

So imagine you're in a typical Weatherspoons - no atmosphere, horrible waiting room decor, lots of people sitting alone.... Now, put the prices up a bit, reduce the beer range and assume that nobody has attempted to clean the place or collect glasses for a few days - welcome to the Earl of Mercia.
It looks quite grand and posh from the outside, don't be fooled. The clientele is the usual Spoons advocates, I.e. people who can't afford to drink anywhere else and those who can but are too tight too.
The Captain can't defend this. This is not a pub. 4/10.

The Bell Inn, Tile Hill

This is a chain pub that has a primary focus on food. You can tell that it wasn't always this way and some of the locals are not best pleased with this development, but come in anyway due to the lack of alternatives.
The bar staff are always friendly, but there are never enough of them and waits for service are frequent even when the pub isn't busy. They are usually as common as muck with thick council estate accents, and thus are about the only thing left that lend the pub any character.
The decor is typical of food pubs - school canteen based with just enough of the original features left for you to understand the anger of the locals.
Beer is cheap, but dodgy. They usually have Green King IPA <gag, gip> or Bombardier.
Food is very cheap, but even dodgier, only buy if the chip shop next door is closed.
Overall a pretty dire place. 4/10.
