A branch of Wetherspoons reportedly smells like poo and the reason why is pretty odd.

According to local press, a number of people who have gone for a pint (or two) at The Union Rooms in Plymouth have been upset by a distinctly fecal odour and have unsurprisingly complained about it, believing it to be an issue with the toilets.

But the real cause is actually a horrible combination of beer condensation and flooring glue...

The company said in a statement provided to Plymouth Herald: “We can confirm that the unpleasant smell being experienced at The Union Rooms (Plymouth) has nothing to do with the toilets.

“It is believed to be being caused by an issue with condensation from the beer lines, reacting with the glue used on the flooring which is creating an odour.

“The pub management have a site meeting arranged, with a number of contractors, to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”

How bizarre.

Indy100 has also contacted the pub chain for further comment. For now, we can only assume boozers of Plymouth will be sticking to the outside seating area.

It’s just a shame face masks aren’t mandatory anymore...
