Angerstein Hotel, Woolwich, London   10 comments

The Angerstein Hotel can go fuck itself (as I have said here, and here…oh, yes, and here as well…and here, and here).

I didn’t ask for a free pint, I asked if I could buy one but due to the fence could someone bring one out.  Not only did they offer to do so, they offered to do it gratis…the lying sacks of shit.

Original request:

I’m running the Marathon a week from Sunday and I’d love a quick pint (looking for beer stops about every four miles or so).  If you ARE open, I can ring you with my running number when I’m about a mile away to make sure I have correct change for the pint (the barrier gets in the way, so I’d have to beg curb service, sorry).  Hope we can do business! Cheers, drsr

REGARDS
sHERRIE EMMA AND ALL AT THE ANGERSTEIN HOTEL

And, then the phone call on the day:
“Hello, Angerstein.”
“I’m the guy in the marathon that is supposed to call for a beer.”
“The guy in the marathon that is supposed to call for a beer, you say?” and in the background “no, get rid of him.”
“Yes, is there a problem? I can still pay.”
“No mate, you’re too late, we’ve already done that,” then after a short pause, “no, mate, I don’t know what you’re on about.”
“Is Emma there? Or, Sherrie?”
“Yeah, I don’t know what you’re talking about mate.” And, the line went dead.

The Marathon starter’s goodie bag included a can of London Pride. I had that out in front of the bar and got a guy to take the photo but he let his daughter do the work (shown above).  I hope they read this.

    This bloke really seemed to be chuffed about the service: https://1pumplane.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/angerstein-hotel-woolwich-london/

    • Wow. I phoned and got a fairly inept runaround (transcribed in the post). I should be grateful that they dicked me around for several minutes so they wouldn’t have to fulfill their promise? Thank you, oh so much, you bunch of cocksuckers. 33 pubs close per week in Britain … you lot should step up and take the place of a more deserving house.
