A pub owner has hilariously fought back against negative reviews left by disappointed visitors.

Nick George, the owner of Logan Rock Inn in Treen in Cornwall, was less than impressed when he found negative reviews left by a couple of disgruntled guests.

He certainly didn’t take too kindly to the reviews of his award-winning 16th-century village venue and fought back at some of the reviews left on Tripadvisor.

One reviewer, who gave the pub a three-star rating, stated they came across the pub with a “pleasant outside sitting area and roaring fires inside” but was left heartbroken when they were no vegan options on the menu.

She said she asked if they could do a salad sandwich but was told no, and instead given a “boring portion of unhealthy chips”.

The woman added: “How long would it have taken the chef to whip up a salad sandwich whilst making two others for our party?

“My husband and our friend had enormous piles of salad as a side with their sandwiches, so there was plenty available. Next visit, I shall order a bread roll and a side salad and make my own.”

Mr George doesn’t take too nicely to negativism, and has fought back at some of the reviews left on Tripadvisor.

In a sarky comeback, Nick responded: “Hi, thanks for your recent review! I’d like to know what the member of staff looked like and what day you visited, please. That way I can get to the bottom of this issue.

“Also, feel free to apply for one of our 3 chefs jobs on offer as you seem pretty keen to work on our sandwich/salad counter.”

In another comment, someone complained about the choice of music in the pub stating they were “force-fed” commercial radio, with an ad playing every 5 minutes.

Nick then replied: “My god I didn’t realise you were so precious and couldn’t handle a little bit of background noise or a little Cornish radio station, hardly a reason to write a review, my love. Thanks for your input it was really great to receive such a fantastic reply.”

After visiting one summer, one reviewer was taken aback by the prices of drinks complaining that £19.50 for ‘two cokes, one Korev and a white wine spritzer” was far too much.

He finished his comment by stating: “The food looked good but might have to sell a kidney to finance the food!”

This review certainly provoked Nick, who responded back stating: “Well if you’re Cornish do you think you’d get it cheaper! What size wine did you have? Was it Chilean or New Zealand??? What size coke did you have ?? Half pint or regular or a pint???”

He added: “As for selling a kidney to finance the round that’s a bit OTT but obviously you don’t get out much!!”
