Brits have voted dirty glassware as their top restaurant turn off, according to a survey by Miele Professional.
Over half (52%) of the 2,000 consumers surveyed voted for grubby glassware and a further third (32%) said that if they were to experience dirty utensils, they would be unlikely to ever return.
Pubs are the worst offenders, with 43% of consumers claiming to have experienced dirty glassware or crockery whilst having a drink or a meal in a pub last year.
High-end restaurants were deemed the "cleanest", with just 3% of those surveyed saying that they had experienced dirty glasses or crockery at these establishments.
Les Marshall, sales and marketing director at Miele Professional, said: "Nobody wants to feel that they're eating or drinking in a restaurant, bar or bistro that doesn't have the highest standards of cleanliness and the results of our recent survey prove that.
