When this pub owner from County Offaly came across a negative review of his business, he wasn’t having a bar of it.

The Sunday World published a review of JJ Hough’s pub in Banagher as part of their Pub Spy column and gave it a mere two out of five stars.

It described the bar as a ‘unique experience’, and gave comments like:

The reviewer also went on to say that they left the pub ‘scratching their heads’.

Well, the pub’s owner, Ger Hough, was having none of it and decided to respond by making a video reacting to the comments.
