A horse walks into a bar…

Well actually, it was tied up outside the pub.  Did they choose the White Horse Inn on purpose? 

The UK has many local breweries, such as Harveys in Lewes, the Black Sheep in Masham, North Yorks or our local Battersea Brewery each making their own distinctive beers with names like Bombadier, Cheddar Potholer, and Power Station Porter.   The pubs that sell these beers are a far cry from bland, generic chain pubs, and are really worth searching out.  They are usually members of the Campaign for Real Ale.  

On our recent holiday staying in Westleton, Suffolk, we tried a few of the pubs owned by the local brewery, Adnams of Southwold.  Each of the pubs had its own character, from the light and airy Crown in Westleton, with it’s lovely garden and delicious food, to the cosy Lord Nelson in Southwold, with it’s roaring log fire on a cold, rainy day, and walls covered in Nelson memorabilia. 

Of course we tried out plenty of the delicious Adnams beers too!

      I had the fish and chips, and very welcome they were too after a morning in the gales on the beach.

    Great picture, it looks like the horse is about to bonk it’s head on the wall!

    Oh man. The one of the Lord Nelson Inn is great. The mist with the mast in the background tells the story of every port town in the world

      It was a really miserably cold and wet day and I think the picture captured it pretty well.

    These little pubs look great, and I’m sure the beer there is far better than mass-manufactured swill. I’d rather have one really good beer than drink watery stuff all night long.
    I’m with Tim on the Lord Nelson photo. Amazing shot!
