The George of Stamford

Stamford

For 50 years Lawrence Hoskins, who died in March 2023, ran and shaped this landmark coaching inn. Happily, Lawrence’s wife, Andrea, and family continue to espouse the timeless values and traditions that make The George so special. A British classic that’s expensive, say readers, but worth it.

West Hoathly

Old-style hospitality abounds at Andrew Russell’s dog-friendly 16th-century pub in a South Downs village. It’s a buzzy, real-ale, beams-and-inglenooks kind of local, with a menu of high-quality pub classics and more inventive dishes, while the four simple bedrooms are the cat’s pyjamas.

The Rose & Crown

The Rose & Crown

Snettisham

A proper locals’ drinking pub, the 14th-century Rose and Crown is family-friendly, dog-friendly and refreshingly unpretentious. There are spruce bedrooms, a garden with kids’ climbing ship – and decent pub grub for those days when only crispy fish and chips and a good pint will hit the spot.

The Mount Edgcumbe

The Mount Edgcumbe

Tunbridge Wells

A snug in a cave is a real novelty at this Georgian gastropub a stroll from the town centre and the famous Pantiles. But it was the relaxed welcome, boutique-smart air-conditioned bedrooms, and eclectic menu of high-quality pub food that swung it for our inspectors.
