They're great, aren't they? And they're suffering at the moment as well, so let's spread the love and see who recommends what.
Let's be hearing your recommendations for GREAT pubs.
A few from me;
The Parrot, Forest Green in Surrey. Stunningly good food (They have their own farm!) and lovely beer.
The Malet, Newton Tony (IMHO, the finest pub in the country! I've been going there for about twenty years and still love the place)
Wombwell Arms, Wass, Yorks. Lovely food, great beer and a really nice atmosphere overall.
The Ferryboat Inn, Helford Passage, Cornwall. OK, so it's no stunner in high season with all the grockles, but in the off season, it's a great place for a beer after a day's sailing
The Cressely Arms, Pembs. Affectionately known as the Quay, this is a cracker. Maurice and Janet run a cracking pub. Always a warm fire and a warmer welcome!
So, let's have the STW Good Pub Guide then!
