Over 900 special pubs and inns throughout England and Wales have been chosen and there are full page spreads for all pubs with bedrooms that we inspect and find special. Well-researched, fresh and lively write-ups paint an accurate picture so you need never be stuck in a grim, swirly-carpeted, juke box-rattled corner again. On top of that, clear symbols and indices show, where children and pets are welcome, where there's a wide choice of beers, wines, locally-sourced food, good gardens, great walks or an open fire.
