The Emmott Arms, Rawdon

Well, I speak as I find and the truth is that this is a Sam Smiths pub and as such suffers from all the issues that go with it - such as only Sam Smith products to drink, absolutely no music, not even a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' and very limited food. However my main problem is with the now sanitised and brand new interior - no clutter allowed, and hence little character in a pub well over 200 years old. Well done Humphrey Smith and his very odd brewery!

The Gaping Goose, Garforth

Oh dear! Whilst the new owners have not been tempted to knock any walls down, sadly the place has been refurbished in the dreaded 'contemporary' style. I do believe a charming fire place has gone from the Tap Room and flat screens have been installed in every room. Why oh why do people do this and in the process ruin the character of the pub? This was a gem - a genuine community pub with many original features - now it looks like any modern bar, complete with part-tiled floor taverna style.

The Seven Stars, West Kensington

Well it looks like Fullers decided to cash in on this one for an undisclosed sum - it seems set to become a hostel or hotel. I never had the pleasure of imbibing here and judging by most of the comments its just as well! Shame though as good thirties pubs are quite rare and this looks good from the outside. No doubt it had been gutted ages ago, but I bet it was a stunner when new. RIP
