The traditional English pub is a deeply-rooted identity of British culture where locals and visitors can sample great beers and ales as well as local produce and the old favourite of a Sunday roast lunch.

Many of our featured establishments have a unique character you can only find in an English pub while our Great Country Pubs champion a plethora of quintessential English inns with a homely rural feel you just can't get in London. A selection of coastal inns and taverns is sure to warm the cockles with south coast pubs in Sussex, Hampshire and on the Isle of Wight among our favourites.

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 if you're looking for dog friendly pubs.

So sit back and relax a pint of locally brewed real ale in a Great Country Pub, where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, roaring log fire and great home-cooked food for lunch or dinner 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.
