A Welcoming Country Pub
There is nothing nicer after a refreshing country walk than finding yourself a county pub., Despite the delights of your walk the highlight will most certainly be when you find yourself in the warm and welcoming enclave of the pub where you can delight in a tasty and hearty homecooked meal and a glass of something cold.
The country pub is a quintessential part of our heritage, and for many communities serves as both a social hub and a welcoming environment for food and drink. Many have been run by the same family for several generations, are centuries old and exude a unique charm and character.
Country pubs although retaining their charm and friendly appeal have evolved in many cases into fine dining establishments where seriously good and innovative dishes feature on the menu. Their décor although retaining a rustic and country ambience is cosy, modern and smart. Low-beamed ceilings, flag-stone floors, a roaring and crackling open fire glowing in the hearth is uplifting and instantly makes you feel at home and relaxed especially on a cold, dark day.
In the summer many establishments come into their own, with beer gardens and lots of outdoor seating where you can enjoy the warm sunshine, surrounded by fragrant summer hanging baskets.
Behind the bar you will find an incredible selection of fine beers, local ales and ciders and on tap, along with a wide range of spirits and a good choice of wines and soft drinks. Some even feature their own microbrewery.
The food on offer depends on the establishment you can look forward to dining in comfort and elegance, feasting on local produce, savouring unfussy traditional roasts, great fish and chips or simply settling for a bag of pork scratchings, all tastes are catered for.
The delight of the country pub is there is one for all possible whims and desires. Where locals and visitors mingle together chatting and enjoying the relaxed and bustling atmosphere. Often, they will feature live music, sporting events, quiz or game nights or have board games for customers use. You will be well looked after by the friendly staff.
A country pub is sometimes just the right fit for a bite to eat or a place to chill out in, they can be a really special spot, you will leave with a satisfied glow, and feeling all is well in the world.
