Bell

This is a quiet country pub, offering a good range of meals and beers. None of the ubiquitous speakers but occasional gentle soft tracks played behind the bar. We arrived in time to order their home-steamed steak and kidney pudding – rich and very filling, oozing with dark gravy, served with creamy mash, carrots and cauli’.
[Other facilities: Garden to rear, Ladies loo modernised and opened by the ‘Olympic Pilot’, selection of games, newspapers, paperbacks …]

The Five Bells

This is a most agreeable, relaxed, music-free, dog - friendly pub, with Bill and Joan offering a range of excellent beers and modestly - priced home cooked food. Accommodation is also available. Its very existence is proof that life in this frenetic century is still worth living.

Market Town Taverns

Robert Stevens recommends this chain of pubs which are 'spartan in their furnishing' with decent but limited range of food and 'excellent beer'. Typical is the Brigantes at 144 Micklegate York YO1 6JX
In their words, all are ‘un-themed but share several common features:-
A unique and welcoming ambience
A wide range of real ales from independent brewers
A fine selection of bottled & draught Continental beers
An extensive wine list
Good food prepared in-house
Daily and Sunday newspapers
Music-free bar areas in most taverns
Dogs are welcome

Fine old-fashioned pub in the heart of St James's

The Chequers Tavern is a rarity in contemporary London: a fine old-fashioned pub with reasonable prices, excellent beers, a wonderfully unmodernised interior agreeably battered over the centuries and cheap, simple food ('pub grub' describes it). All this in the heart of St James's recalls a vanishing London not devoted just to the pleasures and purses of the super-rich.
Note: a large TV screen and national flags suggest that football is at times broadcast.
