This weekend Prince Harry visited a pub in Devon on a stag weekend – and offered to buy it. The historic Maritime Inn in Brixham, Devon, played host to Prince Harry and around fourteen stags, who loved the pub so much that he joked with the landlady that he had £650,000 in his pocket to pay for it.
Here’s ten more top charming traditional pubs for a boozy stag do:
Ty Mawr Arms, Cardiff
This charming country pub with a huge beer garden was once a farmhouse. Sip a pint of ale or tuck into some outstanding pub grub with stunning views of Cardiff and the Severn Estuary.
The Dove, Hammersmith, London
A brilliant historic pub on the River Thames with a cosy fire in winter and a brilliant beer garden and terrace, ideal to relax with the stags riverside in the company of local celebrities.
Fox and Anchor, Clerkenwell, London
A renovated traditional pub serving city workers and market traders from Smithfield Market for decades. Go for the excellent real ale and huge carnivorous food portions sourced from the nearby meat market.
The Briton’s Protection, Deansgate, Manchester
Arguably the best traditional pub in Manchester. Expect plenty of real ale, exuberant locals and a vast selection of whisky and bourbon in a prime Deansgate location.
Bristol Cider House, Bristol
An ideal spot for stags to indulge in Bristol’s favourite drink, the Cider House serves up to twenty varieties of the West Country gold stuff on tap at a time and plenty of bottles. The Georgian pub is also in an excellent central location.
The Bear Inn, Oxford
This cosy old boozer is a Grade II listed building in the heart of historic Oxford serving up real ale, excellent food and plenty of character.
The Raven, Bath
Local legend, The Raven, is a pub not to be missed in Bath yet relatively tourist free compared to the city’s other old boozers. A popular local worth a visit solely for the pies.
The Palm Tree, London
Step back in time to this living museum of London’s East End. The Palm Tree’s décor has probably been untouched since the 1950s making it an unforgettable boozy canalside stop off.
Enjoy a pint beneath the timber frames of a sixteenth century pub in the heart of one of the most historically rich cities in the UK.
The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London
The Porterhouse is the largest pub in London but the atmosphere is like a cosy local thanks to the twelve different levels and intimate booths. Beers on tap and in the fridge are sourced from around the world for an awesome drinking experience.
