Golden Pints Golden Pubs 2017

Golden Pubs

Nellie’s (The White Horse Inn), Beverley, West Yorkshire

A pub you will never forget once you’ve experienced it. A warren of older rooms lit only by candles, but with additional more modern facilities making it commercially viable as well as a quirky olde worlde destination.

The Old Coffee House, Soho, London

Pleasingly odd half-tied house with tons of dusty memorabilia and some dingy corners, but with an extensive range of the brewery’s own ales including stand outs the Jamaican Stout and the Citron Saison.

The George and Dragon, Great Budworth, Cheshire

A more quintessentially English country pub you could not wish to meet. Partly dating back to 1722 and opposite the village church this pub becomes a Christmas card image during the winter.

The Union Tavern, Runcorn, Cheshire

Underappreciated and untouched by food service or modernisation, the Union is a real locals pub with a snug, a card school, and outside toilets. No pretence or claims to be more than a local boozer serving the nearby residential streets.

Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield

Everything a pub should be – welcoming and with a decent beer range kept properly. In a city with such a strong pub game you have to really be something special to stand out and this place is.

  1. A good mix on the pub list, Kirsty. Notable that anyone can visit any of those pubs tomorrow, but I bet no-one could find any of those beers tomorrow. Lots of great beer, very hard to find it a second time.

    NB I had that Brodies Jamaican Stout in the Kelham Island this month, a great combination !

    True, I think a few were limited edition but I suppose that’s what made them memorable.
