As in previous years the decades-old (surely they can’t be new?) Christmas decorations of The Bear were once again dragged out to festoon that worthy (?) establishment’s fixtures and fittings.
And once again they looked gorgeously pathetic.
Now in fairness I have to admit that I didn’t get the chance to inspect the decorations until almost a week after Christmas Day, and my mate assures me that they were rather more splendid then… but have since been trashed somewhat.
I’m not entirely certain I wholly believe him.
