The City Arms, Manchester

Popped in this lunchtime, had a Pride of Pendleton (excellent) and the two for £9 burger and chips luchtime special. Hot, tasty and delivered quickly. Attentive staff, good atmosphere. What more do you want?

The Beaufort Arms, Stoke Gifford

Popped in on a Friday evening with my family on a visit to Brizzle.
Busy with locals, builders swapping stories, women out with their friends for a bite and a chat, local lads on a Friday night out. Staff friendly, as were the locals. Buttcombe bitter in fine fettle, and hot food, quickly served and reasonably priced.
A very good welcoming atmosphere, and a very pleasing find.

The Harp, Covent Garden

Popped in yesterday at about 11:30. Made sure I was early, as I knew it would probably fill up, as it did.
Downstairs, is small, cosy, and decorated with drawings and paintings of film/stage actors. Has a great atmosphere, a far cry,thankfully, from corporate ye olde pubbe fakes. The Harp has a small upstairs room with some comfy looking armchairs, and tables, but I feel that you`d miss out on the atmosphere if you favoured a little more comfort.
Sadly, it was to be a fleeting visit, so I went for the Dark Star Hophead, which was delightful. Decided to take advantage of the sausage menu, I had Spicy Pork, whilst my son had Wild Boar ?! tucked into a toasted baguette , which were both hot, fresh and tasty. Luckily, we found a table at the back, and tucked in. Meanwhile, the pub filled up, with knowledgeable drinkers, and city types, and the bar staff swelled from one to four, all friendly and efficient. I would love to have spent all afternoon here, as I am sure that I would have made new friends, but I wouild have wound up staggering about Central London, and that just would n`t do.
Great beer, great atmosphere, friendly staff, tasty fresh food, why are n`t all pubs like this? A definate "must visit" when you`re next in the Smoke.
