Not so long ago the thought of staying overnight in a pub would conjure up vivid images of cheaply-furnished bedrooms, the smell of stale beer and bathrooms that had seen better days. How things have changed – now you can stay in luxurious rooms, full of home-from-home comforts, where children and dogs are welcomed too.
Recognising this growing trend of pubs with smart rooms and high-quality food and drink, industry expert, David Hancock has been inspired to create InnPlaces.co.uk, a niche website that showcases a carefully-curated collection of England and Wales’s most stylish pubs with rooms.
David, who previously edited Sawday Pubs & Inns and AA Room at the Inn, says “I handpicked my personal favourites to ensure customers can find the best inns and pubs with rooms that England and Wales have to offer. Some are posh with boutique-style rooms while others ooze tradition and rustic country house charm.
“We look for rooms with a wow’ factor that will draw guests back time and time again, but mostly for a winning combination of wonderful food, real ales and wine, comfortable bedrooms, and a genuine welcome from hands-on owners. Also important are inventive menus that brim with local produce, enthusiastic staff and excellent housekeeping.”
However, Inn Places is so much more than just a collection of fabulous inns. Delve deeper into the website and alongside information on places to visit, local walks and independent shopping, you’ll find fascinating food trails that will give you a real flavour of the area you are visiting. Each food trail showcases local artisan producers, micro-breweries and vineyards offering tours, quality farm shops and delicatessens plus other good pubs and eateries within a 20-mile radius of the inn – everything you need to know to help you craft the perfect break away.
David has singled out two inns in particular in Surrey, The Running Horses, found just below Box Hill, in Mickleham, and the Inn West End, just three miles from Junction 3 of the M3 and an oenophile’s dream.
