Revealed! The best pub in Britain

The Good Pub Guide crowns the UK's best watering hole

Best pub in Britain named by Good Pub Guide



A charming country watering hole that dates back to the 14th century has been crowned the best in Britain by the pubgoer's bible.

The Rose and Crown at Snettisham, Norfolk, (pictured top) was picked for the prestigious title of Pub of the Year from 5,000 drinking establishments around the country, which feature in the latest Good Pub Guide.

The 700-year-old pub, run by patrons Anthony and Jeanette Goodrich, took the top spot after the editors of the guide were flooded with rave reviews of it.

Britain's best pub revealed

Among the winners of this year's Good Pub Guide awards were the Pipe and Glass in South Dalton (pictured above), Yorks, which was named Dining Pub of the Year, and the Old Harkers Arms in Chester, Cheshire, which was crowned Town Pub of the Year.

The Square and Compass at Worth Matravers, Dorset, won Unspoilt Pub of the Year and the Nag's Head in Malvern, Worcester, was voted Beer Pub of the Year.

The awards celebrate the launch of the 2015 edition of the Good Pub Guide, which was first published in 1982.

Meanwhile, the Rose and Crown at Snettisham is only five miles and a 15-minute drive from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Sounds like it's fit for royals - so perhaps it could be their new local?
