Ashley Laming visited The Gatehouse pub in Doncaster, South Yorkshire on Thursday to rigorously review his meal for fellow Wetherspoons fans.
Ashley shared his review on popular Facebook group, Wetherspoons paltry chip count.
The viral group – which has almost 189,000 members – focuses primarily on counting the number of chips punters receive with their meals at the chain pub.
However, medical manager Ashley took his review a step further when he visited the establishment with a Dulux paint chart to analyse each chip’s colour.
Along with the chart, Ashley measured the weight, the length and the temperature of every chip for his thorough analysis.
Photos shared by Ashley at The Gatehouse pub in Doncaster, Yorkshire, show him measuring several chips on a set of silver metal scales.
One small chip weighs a measly 4.24 grams, whilst a larger, length unit weighs out at 17.76 grams.
Another photo shows a thermometer stuck into an unseen item of food – presumably another chip – showing a blistering temperature of 81.5 degrees celsius.
A third picture shows a Stanley measuring tape, which clocks the length of the fry at 12 cm.
The crown jewel of Ashley’s post though, are images of him checking the colour of chips according to Dulux’s colour chart.
Two chips are displayed in separate photos, sat atop his mobile phone, with the Dulux website open in the background of the phone.
Using the paint company’s colour chart, Ashley appears to be comparing the chips’ colours to determine the consistency of his plate.
One chip’s colour has been determined as a light yellow, named as “lemon pie”, whilst another is a deeper, almost orange colour described as “healing spice”.
Ashley shared the images to the Facebook group on Thursday night from inside the branch, writing: “Well, reporting live from The Gatehouse in Doncaster.
“We have gone for a broad spectrum chip analysis to ensure that any future visitors are prepared for the chips on offer here.”
Ashley and his friends ordered sirloin steaks and an Empire steak burger, along with side portions of chips.
Their results stated: “Sirloin steak 1 – 20 chips, no stragglers.
“Sirloin steak 2 – 19 chips, three stragglers (poor performance really).
“Empire state burger- 21 chips, one straggler.
“It appears that 20 chips is the benchmark for a meal here.
Their chip analyses concluded: “40 chips but nine stragglers. Not majorly impressed to be honest.
“The longest chip was 12 cm.
“The heaviest chip was 17.76 grams.
“The lightest chip was 2.06 grams.
“Average chip temperature was 81.5 degrees Celsius.
“We decided to implement the Dulux colour chart to determine the lightest shade and darkest shade of chip. Results are:
“Lightest shade: Lemon Pie.
“Darkest shade: Healing Spice.”
The Wetherspoons punter gave the meal a 7.5 out of ten.
Ashley’s post has gone down a storm with over 4,200 likes and more than 1,600 comments.
Rachel J McNamara said: “This is fine work. This is exactly the kind of care and effort that makes me proud to be British.
“You have even helped me decide on the feature wall colour of my living room. I am beyond words right now…
“Thank you for your effort.”
John Gregory wrote: “This is truly outstanding work…above and beyond the call of duty. I tip my hat.”
Owen Nye said: “The only time a set of scales has ever been in a Wetherspoons and wasn’t measuring gear.
“This is a phenomenal piece of work though guys. Absolutely spot on. Commendable.”
Mike Rhodes joked: “Not bad, missing environmental factors such as weather conditions, UV index, humidity and moon phase.”
And Kev Challenger said: “You do have to wonder if, by the time you’ve finished with all this analysis and measuring and checking the temperature, whether the chips just get left uneaten cos they’re cold and unappetising?”
