Urban Gems

Urban Gems are the very few remaining no-frills town pubs, which have been unchanged for decades. Many will have two or more rooms, fixed bench seating and the original bar counter. They often disappear when a long-standing licensee retires but thankfully many have been preserved by new owners.
