The Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield

Quite simply this is the best pub I've ever been in, on all counts. Just wish it was nearer to home! Pete

The Crown and Castle, Warwick

I had to visit Warwick at very short notice and found the Crown & Castle via BITE only an hour before setting off.

I understand that pub has recently changed hands and now has new management and chef. The room was modest but clean, tidy and had the usual facilities. Major changes to the restaurant/menu are in hand.

Best parts of my short stay were:
i) first class service from all the staff, ii) full english breakfast was outstanding and far better than I've had in 4 star hotels in London, iii) well kept real ale admittedly of limited choice & iv) off road parking

Bits for improvement were:
i) low stock of complementary items in the room (tea/coffee/milk) ii)lack of complementary items in the room (soap/tooth brush/paste) iii)poor reception on some TV channels (I understand that this is a problem in this particular room).

In summary, a great place to stay at a modest price in a beautiful town. I will recommend to friends and I will revisit. Can't wait to see what other improvements the new owners have implemented and take more time to explore this historic town.

Regards... Pete
