The pub life

A trip to Britain would not be complete without getting on the Guinness and trying some pub grub with the locals! The Harbour Bar in Portrush has just clinched the best pub award in Northern Ireland, and for good reason. With a meaty menu on offer, local favourites Guinness and Bushmills Whiskey and live music almost every night of the week, the Harbour Bar will treat you to a true Irish night out.

For a pub with a more youthful crowd, try The Grafton in Kentish Town, London. These guys pride themselves on being an entertainment pub, with quiz nights, DJs and film screenings offering a sweet social atmosphere to meet locals and travelers alike. Their drinks list is extensive so there’s a bit of something for everyone, but for a special treat make sure you try some of their craft beers from microbreweries around London.

If you’re heading North, Scotland boasts some of the oldest and most authentic pubs in Britain. For over 300 years the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe has been a hangout for travelers, with traditional Scottish breakfasts, three different bars and numerous awards for its unbelievable whiskey collection (over 200 varieties!) and cask ale range. Stumble in after a day hiking through the Highlands or hitting the Glencoe ski slopes and treat yourself to a well-deserved drink.
