But the headline in the Courts section of the latest Newtownards Chronicle...
Greyabbey Pub Restaurant could face closure.
They say 'It has 3 months to make it's premises meet basic health and safety standards'.The Chronicle reports that Ards Borough Council brought a total of 10 charges against the guy who runs the Wildfowler.If there's ever a TV programme called 'How clean is your pub?' with Aggie and what's her name I reckon the Wildfowler should feature at least in the before part based on the charges listed in court.
Charge 1 No temperature monitoring for food refrigeration.
Charge 2 The kitchen floor was dirty, as were walls and light switches, toilets were dirty with a nappy left along with a baby's bottle full of soured fungi filled milk.
Charge 3 The officers found evidence of rodent droppings, with a rat carcass discovered under a table in the lounge.
Charge 4 The premises had no hot water and no soap at the wash hand basins.
Charge 5 There were missing tiles.
Charge 6 Areas were unsealed.
Charge 7 The gas cooker was not clean.
Charge 8 Liquid was leaking from the fridge.
Charge 9 Waste food and drinks were not removed from the function room after approximately two weeks.
Charge 10 Food was cut on a chopping board along with raw chicken.
Guess where I won't be eating for a while?
