Gastro Pubs with Beautiful Rooms
Sometimes you want to arrive somewhere, unpack and wander downstairs for a quick G&T and something to eat. Not just anything mind – it has to be great quality and lovingly prepared. Relaxed yet stylish, our collection of gastro pubs and inns with rooms gives you the chance to do just that. In stunning settings, they also provide the perfect base for exploring before heading back fireside or out to their charming gardens. And to top it all off, they all have beautiful rooms to boot, making these the ideal weekend break.
The Bell Inn, Ticehurst, Kent
This gem of a pub is eccentric British style personified, but with the service you’d expect at a five star hotel. Each of the rooms is beautifully decorated and in the grounds there are four pod rooms with baths that can be opened to the elements should you wish. Great food is served throughout the day in the bar and garden – head for the snug in winter months.
