Bull Inn, Bethersden, Kent

Great Country Pubs in the UK

Just as pasta is synonymous with Italy or wine with France, country inns and UK culture have a deeply-rooted joint identity. Tourism South East is on a mission to help locals and visitors alike get the most out of the wonderful pubs in South East England.

Visitors of all ages are being enticed to escape to the country by a ‘Great Country Pub’. Tourism South East’s new website showcases a plethora of quintessential English inns located throughout KentSussex, Isle of Wight, Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

The country inn has been an important part of British culture since Roman times. Once described by Samuel Pepys as “the heart of England”, they offer a truly traditional experience in an ever-modernising world. Steeped in history and brimming with their own unique charm and character, the South East has options to suit every visitor, whether travelling with children, loved ones, or even man’s furry best friend.

So what is a ‘Great Country Pub’? It's a carefully selected place where you can sup a pint of locally brewed real ale, where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, where you will find a table in front of a roaring log fire and great home-cooked food using only the best local produce, all set against a picturesque backdrop, and, in many establishments, the added bonus of high-quality accommodation to rest your weary head.

At Great Country Pubs you will discover a whole host of rural bolt holes with all the above attributes, guaranteed to make your visit to the South East one to remember. Here are a few to whet your appetite:
