If your dream is to travel the world, then you have probably been given advice on all the sights you should see. While that’s all fine and dandy, we’re here to tell you about what really matters: beer. We have compiled a list of the top 10 pubs you need to add to your bucket list.
The Pot Still, Glasgow
In Scotland, you have your pick of pubs. All of them may be beautiful, but The Pot Still stands out from the rest. Not only will you have an absolute blast complete with great beer, but it also has one of the best whiskey selections you will find anywhere. Who doesn’t love a good whiskey?
The Old Inn, Crawfordsburn
These days, The Old Inn is known more as a fancy hotel rather than a pub, but it’s still worth stopping by to enjoy the beautiful décor. The inn is located on one of Ireland’s ancient highways and portions of the building itself are still standing strong from 1614 (if only walls could talk).
Rose & Crown, Snettisham
This pub sits right next to the breathtaking Norfolk coast. The view may be great, but the food is just as good. The 14th-century vibe is a nice touch as well.
Horse & Groom, Bourton-on-the-Hill
This quaint little pub recently earned the well-deserved title of the Good Pub Guide’s Pub of the Year 2016. The food and drink inside this Georgian building are delightful, and the countryside views will blow you away.
The Spaniards, London
With a plethora of pubs to choose from in London, do yourself a favor and check out The Spaniards. It’s not centrally located, but it’s well worth the journey. Dickens, Byron, Dick Turpin, and Karl Marx are all rumored to have stopped in once or twice, so it’s clearly the place to be for visionaries like yourself.
The Cock, Hemingford Grey
Beer is always good at this pub, but the food here is what everyone’s talking about. The restaurant serves up British fine dining that is sure to satisfy. Not surprisingly, a place called The Cock, serves up sausage. In fact, they have over 100 kinds of sausages to choose from!
Clachaig Inn, Glencoe
The Clachaig Inn is a 300-year-old beauty in the Scottish Highlands. It has an excellent beer and whiskey selection, as well as rooms you can book for when you have a few too many. Toss back a couple cold ones and wake up to breathtaking scenery. And, we’re not just talking about the stunning whiskey selection!
Old White Swan, York
Almost every pub in York is amazing. However, the Old White Swan has a great selection of ales and spectacular food. All of this within a cozy little setting, and you have the perfect pub.
The Pandora, Falmouth
This 13th-century inn sits right on the edge of the Restronguet Creek. At the pub, you can enjoy a cold pint while watching the boats go by. If you stay until dinnertime, then you can order up a nice meal as well.
Here is all you need to know about this craft beer bar – you can actually control a robot with a smartphone app and brew your own beer. Where has this been all our lives?!
Now when you’re out exploring the world, you know where all of the most important stops are. When visiting these extraordinary pubs, be sure to have a pint for us. Cheers!
