“There is nothing which has been yet contrived  by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.”   Samuel Johnson


Wood-fired ovens, pubs gardens as community allotments, pudding clubs... Innovative food from some of the best chefs in England and Wales. We’ve picked these pubs because we feel they’re really special – original, authentic, memorable – and because we feel you’ll love them too.

When you eat and drink in one of our special pubs, you’ll enjoy home-made imaginative meals produced with flair and care, and local ales, wines, ciders…
