The Bay Horse, York

Lovely old pub with friendly staff and good beer. Very comfortable.

Bay Horse, York

Nice-ish food at reasonable prices, excellent beer, great location, very nice staff, BUT, considering the stunning, beautiful exterior, the interior of this pub is dull, charmless and slightly sad. A lot of the original interior will have been removed long since I think, but the open interior now is just rather depressing. The carpet is ugly, the pictures on the wall are few and tasteless. This is *such* a shame for such a beautiful, noble building.

The Hour Glass, South Kensington

This pub has had a curious refurbishment, replacing one type of Victorian (carpet, one or two booths, bit of brass,) with another (boards, ox-blood leather window seats.) It could have been worse, and though it's according taste, I do not understand why all the trouble and expense to replace a charming, cozy, comfortable an unusual interior with this duller, though adequate one.
Some of the cost has gone on the drinks too - I paid £4.65 for a pint of bitter. In the Hour Glass's defence it was absolutely excellent.
