    and also avoid fat, grey haired blokes in leather jackets which are either too small or the owner forgot to stop eating.

    He seems a tad angry!!

    Maybe it was because the cyclist caused the earphone of his i-pod to fall out of his ear......naughty cyclist!!

  • Someone that angry driving a vehicle like that is your worst nightmare when out on a bike.

    "We’ll fix up your bike while you enjoy a coffee,"


    Doesn't mention the price for "Having your ******* teeth shoved down your ******* throat you ****", that must be on the specials board.

    Surely threatening to kill someone is a criminal offence?
    just shows that however much money or success a person gains, if your scum, you stay scum.

    Yes there's a blackboard offering that and "breaking your f*@cking neck" (if there's no witnesses) for £4.99 Mon-Fri. I can only surmise that this place was once a quiet little greasy spoon until it appeared on Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares or something

    Follow the Fb link on the brew cafe website to have a giggle at the comments and reviews. Da 'community' have been active.

    Smile you're on camera, no such thing as bad publicity. Dearie me.

    Met someone like that the other week. I politely pointed out the errors of his driving and after a brief tirade by him I politely wished him a good day. After getting in front of him at the lights I knew what was coming. He passed as close as he could as fast as he could then realised the traffic was queued ib front of him. Cue emergency stop/tyre smoke by him and he then gets out and tells me how my teeth are getting smashed in (they weren't). It's 5pm, I'm 55, in cleats and he's a 20 something raring to 'ave a go'! I let him have a rant and off he went, driving in an angry manner.
    I can see the cyclist pov but matching abuse for abuse doesn't work imo. You lose the moral high ground and it escalates into 2 blokes shouting as demonstrated in that video

    I'd better not post it but someone's found a picture on him naked standing on some scales which are rather more reflective than perhaps he realised and you can glimpse a "tiny" clue as to what might be the source of the problem
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    he's going to learn that the world of the internet giveth and taketh away. he should get out there now with an apology to the cyclist, an invitation to the cyclist to have a free meal and free coffee for ALL cyclists visiting ANY of his establishments any Sunday in June

    The website's a bit smug as well.

    The facebook comments are awesome. That would be a big, fat "oops"

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    "master butcher"... he's not a fucxing Jedi is he?

    He's just a butcher, master of what?... it's not that you have to have a high degree or go through a series of of exams and coloured belts to cut some meat... some professions are a bit overrated in my view... :roll:

    It's ok

    He's apologised, and been fined a whopping £90.

    So that's all ok.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    A whopping fine? £90.
    Damage to his and his business' reputation? Priceless.

    has he been reading the Thomas Cook manual of how to apologise timely?

    Wow, the backlash on the various Brew Facebook pages is quite something.

    So you provoked a confrontation, and then came here to tell us not to do that?

    Clever.

    Almost as clever as coming on here and doing the same with a fellow cyclist :roll:
