They say,"Try everything before you die." So, I did a little favor for all the dipsomaniacs out there. I have listed up remarkable inns- old school, ghostly, smallest micropubs etc.
So,mark up your maps and prepare a bucket list. Here's a list of all the pubs you must try before you die.
A historic pub on Spaniards Road between Hampstead and Highgate In London. It lies on the edge of Hampstead Heath near Kenwood House. Dick Turpin was a regular in the Inn.
The Cherub Inn dates from 1380 and still retains many of its original features, including some old ships' timbers, and its original use is thought to have been as a Merchant's House. It is the oldest building in Dartmouth - possibly the oldest "town house" in the South Hams.
It's a free house country pub near Basingstoke, Alton lasham Hampshire. It serves freshly prepared local food, daily changing menu, log burning stoves, beer garden. They are featured in The Good Pub Guide, CAMRA's Good Beer Guide and nominated for local awards. Additionally, they are in the Times' Top 30 places in the UK for Sunday lunch.
It's the smallest pub in Britain, sizing about the size of a Manhattan Apartment. It's a tiny Victorian pub plastered with memorabilia and quirky ephemera, including a mummified cat.
The Pelican is a traditional pub and local real ale shop, with an adjoining restaurant and en-suite bed and breakfast accommodation.
A few miles north of Abergavenny, this place dates way back, over 900 years to the Norman conquest. It is the oldest public house in Wales. It is one of the best places to go to for people who want to experience ghostly activity.
The wooden floor is scuffed, paint is peeling all over the shop and the knackered tables are heavy with what looks like centuries-worth of spilled pints. If you like what you taste, you can pick up a five-litre mini-keg of the pub's most popular brews to take home.
A 300-year-old inn and restaurant with an adjoining microbrewery set in 60 acres near Ambleside, in the Lake District. The inn is named after ducks owned by a previous landlady. Legend has it they passed out drunk after beer seeped into their feeding trough, and their owner, believing them dead, decided to pluck and cook them. They awoke on entering the hot oven, were spared, and spent several years in knitted jackets until their feathers grew back.
It's the very first micropub. This place is old school; pickled onions make up most of the menu and you pay at the end of the night.
This pub has twice won the Pride of Manchester award. It serves upto 200+ whiskeys. Don't miss the mural depicting the Peterloo Massacre of 1819, which happened nearby.
The Birch Hall Inn keeps it simple: beer through a hatch, exemplary pork pies, and beer cake for afters.
It's probably the oldest and mosy haunted hostlery in Salisbury. It's listed on CAMRA's National Inventory for its historic interior and recommended by the Good Pub Guide for 28 years.
Stein Inn is the oldest inn on the Isle of Skye. The whole inn is non-smoking. You can sample the local brews, enjoy the fabulous scenery from your car, bird-watch or climb the mountains.
