user reviews of Sawyers, Kettering

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This building still bears the name "The Swan", which was presumably a former name. But Sawyer's is also now closed.

WARNING!! Check you're charged right before you hand over your money.

Ordered three bottles which should have totalled 5.50 but as we mixed them together (ourselves but did ask for a jug), the beautiful barmaid charged 7. As we didn't realise straight away we paid and asked her about it later but was told that it was dearer because it was a cocktail! At no point were we advised that we were paying 1.50 extra for a jug.

We were the only customers in the bar at the time.

On further questioning the price we were told we could not have a refund, but if we were to order two more jugs we could then have them at the proper retail price - outrageous!

While waiting to speak to the owner who arrived later we were acknowledged and then both the beautiful barmaid and the owner busied themselves to avoid us. After waiting patiently 10 minutes (still no other customers in the pub) we left disgruntled and ripped off by 1.50.

We feel as though we were overcharged deliberately because we hadn't been in the pub before and whenthey were rumbled we were fobbed off.

The pub is very much alive and kicking. Best known for its live music and ales. It's definitely a popular place, there's usually a crowd of people puffing away outside. The windows are full of posters advertising the next gigs,.. they don't appear to have a website but you can search myspace to see whats on if you're not local!

Excellent pub, they have their own brewery (Pot Belly) several guest ales and unusually for a venue that has live music working toilets/soap/water!
