Dealing with bad reviews in the food service industry

Dealing with negative reviews

This spike will boil down to the incessant need for the football fan to fuel up with beer!

But what might be popular here in the UK, might not necessarily be popular in the competing nations…with a few surprises towards the top of the rankings, we wonder who drinks the most beer per person in Europe?…
