The KKK Bin Pub Review #14 - The Elbow Room

 

Its back to a land that time forgot this week with a trip to Inverkip's effort at a bin pub.

The Elbow Room is the public bar offshoot of the Inverkip Hotel. The larger hotel bar/restaurant is a hotspot for middle aged wankers called Farquhar to discuss fucking sailing and their subs to the Tory party, so be sure to find the correct entrance.

 

Good

 

Despite the less then promising location, The Elbow Room at least remains faithful to some bin pub principles: big boy measures are in place and live sports can also be found on the TV. Despite a recent refit, it has also correctly stuck to the dark and dingy look: a pub should not be lit up like its under the floodlights at Cappielow.   

 

Bad

 

Inverkip prices make Gourock's pubs look as good value as drinking at a streetside shack in Albania. The larger selection of pints split either side of the £4 mark. Prosecco rather than El Dorado is the wine on special offer here. The Elbow Room also serves a selection of bar meals, when the closest thing that a bin pub should offer to a solid meal is a packet of Scampi Fries and a dodgy pint of Guinness. 

 

Verdict

 

1K/3 

 

The Elbow Room fails to meet many bin pub requirements but is not so much of a fucking disaster as The Cloch or other failures within Greater Greenock. With big boy measures and live sport available, The Elbow Room is passable for an hour or two if you get stranded in that hovel of a village and want to avoid the local wanker set. It earns an 'any port in a storm' KKK certificate of acceptance but nothing more.

I'd have made it twenty grand after drinking in that dump, it won't be missed.

Tony Fitzpatrick is actually one of the good guys. He came up to my house one night to speak to my son and I done the hospitable thing and gave him coffee and a plate of soap. Had a good laugh about it.

 

Its not like you to be groomed by a jakey Slazenger trackie wearing tramp.
