Gah, could go on all day, Mrs Rider and I like country pubs and country pub owners often like us to use the beer garden, owing to Rider Jr.
Top few locals and few further afield
The Harp Inn, Old Radnor, Powys. Top nosh and view across to The Whimble at sunset
The Brewer’s Arms, West Malvern (see as far as the Black Mountains and Brecons from the terrace garden) best home made chips at any pub ever
The Chase Inn, Upper Colwall, Herefordshire.
Saracens Head, Symond’s Yat East, nr Ross On Wye, right on the River Wye at head of a 12 mile cycle path to Monmouth and back
The Camp Inn, Grimley, Worcs, old school pub on the Severn
The Live and Let Live, Bringsty Common, Worcs
The Bush Inn, Morwenstow (take the footpath to the coast from beer garden).
The Pilchard Inn, Burgh Island, South Hams, surrounded by sea
Kings Arms Llangennith, Gower Peninsula
The Blue Ball, Countisbury, North Devon
+1 for George III, love the MawddachPosted 3 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
Welsh coastal ones do it for me. There are loads.
Ty Coch in Porthdinllaen
Ship Inn, Tresaith
are a couple worth googling
Edit: If someone can recommend some eateries along the Way of the Roses, that’d be handy. Staying in Morecambe, Pateley Bridge and York this week, finish in Brid.Posted 3 years agosoulriderSubscriber
The Old Inn – Carbost Skye
and its only a short walk from the Talisker Distillery
Another shout for the Old Bridge Inn in Aviemore
Polochar Inn on the south coast of South Uist.
Ferry Boat inn or Seaforth in Ullapool.
The Pub at Kylesku (I cant remember its name)
Clachaig Inn Glencoe
a couple of wild cardsPosted 3 years ago
Snow Goose (top of Nevis Range Gondola) they sell 3 Sisters.
Ptarmigan (top of the Funicula Cairngorm) they sell a few of Cairngorm Brewery’s finest
Which pubs are your favourite? They don’t have to do great beer or food (though it helps) but which pubs in Britain have you been to that have been in fantastic settings?
The Applecross inn has to be my favourite, followed by George III near Dolgellau (both are quite similar I suppose). One beautiful warm spring day I sat outside the Cwellyn Arms staring up at Snowdon, lost track of time!

Houns, the brewers is a tied Marston pub but they do have guest beers, often malvern brewery, sometime Wye valley.
The best kept pint of HPA in the county though is further along the hill at the malvern hills hotel. The bar is very comfortable and the terrace is nice too. Worth the ride, as you pass it heading for British camp but it doesn’t have much of a view because of its spot.Posted 3 years agoMalvern RiderMember
The Brewers have Wye Valley HPA on all the time, and a frequently updated selection of guests. I have to visit regularly in case of Salopian Oracle making an appearance – tried for a bat-signal type setup but they weren’t having any of it 🙂
Worcs pubs? How could I forget The Talbot, Knightwick. Top food, home grown veg, local meat etc…home brewed ales, big beer garden right on the Teme, best pork scratchings around, always peaceful even when busy. Splendid.Posted 3 years agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
The Maenllwyd Inn near Caerphilly was beautiful once. I suspect it’s garden is still one of the nicest around, with its gorgeous view of the green hills. Owned now, as it is, by Chef & Brewer, however, it is like it had an operation to have its soul removed. The signage is naff, the frosted glass dividers inside look naff, and the big stinkin’ posters advertising the meal deals have utterly destroyed it.
If views are what you’re after, though, it is still worth going to… unless Chef & Brewer have found a way to convert those into shit too.Posted 3 years agogazcMember
Saracen’s Head at Symond’s Yat.
we stopped in for a pint, ended up camping in the site over the road, getting a bit friendly with the locals and canoeing down the wye – awesome!
ship at low newton is great (and as are others listed by drac – we go up to northumberland coast a fair bit)
ty coch @ morfa nefyn is great too – trying to ride along the rocky beach from our digs wasn’t the best idea mind!Posted 3 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
I like a beer and burger at the Inn On the Tay at Grandtully
Also the North Ronaldsay Bird Observatory bar is one of the most perfect places I know
Oh and not forgetting The Old Inn at Carbost on Skye. Scenic location, oh yes, and a distillery across the road.Posted 3 years ago
gazc, we often canoe down the Wye to SY for the night, spend a night there getting suitably liquid, then get up and meander down to Monmouth the next day. Great way to spend a weekend!

Tafarn Sinc, Rosebush. An oddity, but worth a trip!
The Quay at Cresselly (Yes, I know the name over the door is the Cresselly Arms, but I’ve always known it as just The Quay)
The Druidstone. Oh yes!
