A guide to the very best British sporting pubs in the country


What could round-off a great days’ shooting more perfectly than a foamy pint of real ale and some top-notch food in a Great British Country Pub? We know, we know; a good one can be harder to find than that elusive sock after it has made a break from the washing basket. So, to help you out, the Countryside Alliance (in association with Country Life magazine) has produced its guide to the best British sporting pubs on the whole island. The winners of the best British sporting pubs are as follows:

Overall winner and Midlands winner – The Talbot at Knightwick, Worcestershire –

Best for shooting and North of England winner – Lord Crewe Arms, Blanchland, Co Durham –

Best for fishing and South of England winner – The Greyhound on the Test, Stockbridge, Hampshire –

Best for hunting and South West winner – The Exmoor White Horse, Exford, Somerset –

Best in Scotland – The Buccleuch Arms, St Boswells, Borders –

Best in Wales – Cresselly Arms, Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire

Best in the East of England – Saracen’s Head, Wolterton, north Norfolk –
