The best-looking pubs in Britain revealed – and some have had some VERY famous guests | The Sun

THE best-looking pubs in the UK have been revealed – with six across Britain being voted the winners.

The winning pubs were announced by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) as part of their Pub Design Awards.

The awards recognise the "most stunning feats of architecture, design and conservation" in British pubs across the country. 

There were six winners and one highly commended pub across different categories ranging from refurbishment to new build in this year’s awards.

The new build award assessed pubs built in 2021 and there were two joint winners for their modern designs.

Brewpoint in Bedford and the Crown Wharf in Stone, Staffordshire shared the honours.

Brewpoint is the local brewers Wells & Co’s flagship new state-of-the-art, multi-functional building.

CAMRA said the designers had "created what appears to be an industrial building, reflecting one of its functions, as a working brewhouse."

The Crown Wharf on the other hand has a more traditional look, and was described as "a fine addition to the canal side facilities of the town." 

In the refurbishment category, the winner was the King’s Arms in Dorchester, Dorset.

The pub has recently had a major renovation to restore some of the original features – with a rich history which welcomed guests including Queen Victoria and The Rolling Stones.

The Bleeding Wolf in Scholar Green, Cheshire – named following a legend by King John after he was rumoured to have been saved from a wolf by a local – was also highly commended.  

The Historic England conservation award was awarded to the pub which is being best conserved for future generations.

Again there were two joint winners for this award, with the Castle in Macclesfield and the Coach & Horses in Bamburgh, Northumberland sharing the honours.

Finally, the best community local was given to the best refurbished street-corner local pub.

The Boleyn Tavern in East Ham, London was picked as the winner – a pub whose most famous story is for welcoming Mahatma Gandhi back in 1931.

The elaborate ‘gin palace’ was built in 1899 but recently underwent a £1.5m renovation.

Nik Antona, CAMRA’s National Chairman said: “We hope beer-lovers across the country will seek out these examples of excellence and plan visits to them over the summer.”
