If you’re vacationing in the UK, visiting a pub is a must-do. These quaint, charming places are full of history, and what’s more, they often serve excellent food as well as alcohol! Warming up in a traditional pub is one of the best parts about British winters, so check out these three pubs in the southwest of the UK which promise gorgeous decor, delicious food and a warm welcome.

Habour Tavern, Mevagissey

Mevagissey is a stunning Cornish harbor town, and in winter its frequently lashed by winter storms and rain. Don’t let this put you off – struggle through the elements to the doors of the Harbour Tavern, and you can warm up inside with some local ales, a locally sourced menu and a roaring fire.

The Hourglass, Exeter

Perched above Exeter’s beautiful and historic quayside, the Hourglass has a stunning range of local ales, fine wines and carefully sourced spirits. The food is out of this world, expect dishes such as caramelized celeriac with rabbit pie, and locally caught sea bass with parsley cream. Space is limited, so you might want to consider booking if you’re planning on eating.

Warren House Inn, Dartmoor

One of the most isolated pubs in the southwest, you’ll find this famous inn in the center of the moor. With a fire burning in the grate all the way through the year, some stunning wood paneling, and a locally sourced menu, this is the ideal spot to sit back and put your feet up after a grueling walk.
