We recently stayed in York on a sight seeing weekend. On the first evening we booked a table in The Guy Fawkes Inn. We were shown into a back room where in order to retain the character of the Inn they use original gas wall lights. Although the room was lovely and characterful, the heat thrown out by the gas lights just hit you the minute you walked in the room and it made it really dingy, you just couldn't see what you were eating! Although the weather was really wet, being in June it was quite warm so despite the food being absolutely lovely, I can honestly say that by the end of the meal we all couldn't wait to leave due to the heat, I actually felt quite faint! It's a real shame because the staff are absolutely lovely and the meals are very reasonably priced. So, lovely idea guys but join the 21st Century and get some electric and air conditioning it will improve your trade and encourage people to stay and drink after their meals.
