Pub grub has become very popular in recent years. It has led a resurgence in pub meals up and down the country by providing a good selection of hearty and familiar meals at good prices. It also offers many great dishes that taste good and are great to eat on a night out with friends or loved ones.
The last thing you would ever expect to happen if you ate out would be to get pub grub food poisoning. Unfortunately this does sometimes happen although it is important to note the instances of it occurring are rare. The majority of pubs provide an excellent service, cooking outstanding meals that are both safe to eat and very tasty as well. Few people will ever have to worry about the potential outcome of eating a meal that is unsafe for consumption, since few meals are ever like this.
However, it is fair to say some people have been unlucky and have eaten a dish that has made them ill in this way. If this should occur it is worth being aware of what you can do and what symptoms to look out for.
How common is it for someone to get food poisoning?
It is very uncommon when eating out, thanks to the exceptionally high standards and knowledge on the part of chefs and kitchen staff. Food poisoning can develop in different ways depending on which bugs or bacteria are present. However, most cases will pass in a day or so depending on the individual and their ability to get over the food poisoning. It is always important to make sure you can drink plenty to replace the fluids you lose during this situation. This is very important as it can help prevent you becoming dehydrated.
