The Kirkstone Pass Inn, one of the highest pubs in the UK (1,481ft above sea level), in the Winter (Boxing Day 2009) and Spring (April 2010). I was fortunate to take both shots from exactly the same spot (actually unplanned).

The New Inn is an historic Grade I listed coaching inn located in the centre of Gloucester, England. According to Wikipedia, "The Inn was built not long before 1455 by John Twyning, a monk, as a hostelry for the former Benedictine Abbey of St Peter. It is on the site of an earlier inn. After the dissolution of St Peter's the inn passed to the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester Cathedral and was leased to various inn holders until it was sold in 1858." The New Inn is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in Britain. As well as a pub there is also a hotel, restaurant and coffee house. You can view more photos of the New Inn on Travels with Beer.

The Wasdale Head Inn is a remote pub and hotel in the west of Cumbria in north west England. The pub is surrounded by England's tallest mountains and is where British rock climbing began. The pub has an excellent beer garden and I love the giant 'Inn' sign painted on the side of the building which allows walkers to spot the pub from a distance.
