Scunner is a noun that refers to a strong dislike.

The exact origin of scunner is unknown but we can trace it back to Late Middle English when it was first used to mean ‘shrink back with fear.’ More recently it refers an extreme aversion or dislike.

Chris’ scunner of Spaghetti, linguini and garlic bread made no sense to me. After all, why own and operate an Italian restaurant if you hate Italian food?
