The Hour Glass may be a deceptively small pub - it looks a lot bigger on the outside - but it does punch above its weight. For a start there are Cask Marque ales on the three hand pumps, there's a short, but acceptable wine list and there's daily home-cooked food - and it's all reasonably-priced, especially given the pub's upmarket location. The Hour Glass is a tidy, well-kept pub and the service is fast, friendly and efficient. Add to this, TV, newspapers and a real (albeit gas/coal-effect) fire and you've got a pretty decent local, in an area that doesn't have very many. The Hour Glass is often overlooked as it's just aside the prime tourist spots around here, but should you find yourself in the area, you could do a lot worse than pop in for a pint or two.
