I think that "pub pre pre pub curry" is about as long as it can reasonably get, and even then you'd really need tone of voice/pauses to convey it properly. Beyond that, you get into the "buffalo buffalo buffalo ..." sentences which are technically valid but too confusing for real usage.

Coming back to my original example, one way to avoid brackets is to have something like BODMAS rules of precedence, e.g. to say that equal terms (such as "and") associate from right-to-left.
