The Rising Sun, Bath

Last time I was in Bath was summer, and my wife and I had a very pleasant hour in this pub's great beer garden. We also had a very nice lunch, and were impressed by the friendly barman.

Unfortunately, everything seems to have changed for the worse. Of course, it's not the time of the year for beer gardens, so we stayed in front bar. We were planning to eat lunch - but, although the pub only had a few customers, we were told we were "looking at a one and a half hour wait at least", so gave up on that one. The barmaid appeared to have spent rather too much time on the customer side of the bar, and very little beer seemed to be on. A very loud man was talking at the top of his voice about the confidential financial affairs of some local businesses.

I hope the owners/management can recover the situation.

The Coeur de Lion, Bath

Visited during last week while my wife was doing some serious shopping. I had not been in this pub for some months, and it is much much better than on my last visit - when it had appeared to have gone down a rather "let's see how many swearing unpleasant customers we can get in" route.

This time I had nice conversation with a few locals (Nice to have met you Ken), and the girl behind the bar was welcoming and efficient - a pleasant change after my rather unfortunate experience in Old Green Tree. They seem to have spruced up the bar area too, and it looks very smart. Good range of interesting well-kept beers, at very reasonable prices for centre of Bath
