I, with my partner and wee dog have visited Bert's Bar for over a year on a weekly bases, eating there, watching the rugby and always being made welcome by the lovely staff. Until a couple of weeks ago. Went along, new faces behind the bar, indifferent attitude, 1st 3 things we tried to order not available, not even a sorry from the batman who served us. Settled on nachos with vegetarian chill, a dish we have eaten and loved many times before, nachos served very over grilled with no chilli, chilli served separately as an after thought. I disliked the taste of the chilli, it was very different from the usual very yummy usual fare, oily and contained what I thought was soya mince, I had two spoonfuls and left the rest. My partner, recovering from a cold, was struggling to taste anything more than the spices, also felt the texture a little odd. We finished paid and left feeling a little let down as the previous food and service had always been so good. With a very short time I became quick unwell, and was physically sick, at this point I realise the chilli soya mince was actually beef mince, my partner became very ill also. My partner hasn't eaten meat for 7 years while I haven't for nearly 40 years, having become a vegetarian at the age of 11. I have emailed the parent company and not had a response so am reluctantly posting this as a warning to other non meat eaters. It is a terrible shame as this bar had really become our local and is missed.
