Room 101: Nigel Dacres – Plymouth Albion back row

Niles Dacres1. Pretentious pub food presentation

I don’t know whether it’s pub kitchens being lazy and wanting to cut down on the washing up or just a case of them trying too hard to be ‘gourmet’, but I’d prefer to have my food served on a proper plate rather than something that looks like it’s been picked up in the beer garden or off the roof. Recently I’ve had food served on a slate and a chopping board with the chips placed in a plant pot and the sauces in a miniature wire rack trolley.

TRP verdict: We’ve had a bucket full of this food ‘fashion’ fad, you’re in.

2. Reality shows

The people that go on Reality TV Shows are a few bob short of a pound and don’t deserve to be famous. I remember tuning in to watch Big Brother and was dismayed to hear two of the housemates talking about where chicken eggs come from. One genuinely thought that they came from their necks. This high-level conversation went on for about 10 minutes. That killed shows like that for me.

TRP verdict: You’ll be egg-static to know this is going in too

3. Bad Brummie impersonators

As soon as I say I’m from Birmingham (Smethwick) people attempt to do what they think is an all-encompassing Brummie accent. Normally they end up doing a whiny one but not everybody talks like that, that’s more of a Black Country or ‘Yam Yam’ thing. The Black Country dialect is very unique. Yam Yam derives from ‘you am’ e.g ‘yam coming with me ay ya?’

TRP verdict: There’s no need to be so Brum, that’s 3 out of 3
