    Arkwrights - Plungy

    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...17185855722884

    The Guardian votes Preston pub Britainís best for fighting
    Arkwrights a no-frills pub that specialises in delivering a proper hiding, has been named the nationís best fighting pub by the Guardian.The pub, in the Plungington area of Preston, was chosen from over 500 of the roughest hostelries in the UK.
    It was praised for its atmosphere of funky, seventies-style hostility, perfectly executed headlocks and an authentically grim street, ideal for five-a-side brawling.

    Would love to have seen have they've judged this, can hardly imagine a couple a young, hipster type journo's from London coming up for the evening and popping in for a drink to see it for themselves - probabaly getting disheartened at the lack of different fruit flavoured gins or cocktails and sneering disapprovingly when told they there neither any gluten-free menu options nor any Quinoa anywhere on the menu, as well as going around 'correcting' the locals drinker's English with a load of triple syllable words.

    The previous landlord there, who now runs the Ale Emporium, lasted a mere eight weeks after the brewery castigated him for banning a number of regulars including one of their oldest patrons.

    Said customer is known for regularly getting utterly bladdered and after one particularly heavy session the landlord said enough was enough and refused to serve him. In response he headed for the gents and proceeded to write, or try to write, abusive slogans around the bathroom in his own faeces.

    After the brewery stated the landlord should reverse his decision it was agreed that Arkwright's probably wasn't the kind of pub he was looking to run.
