The National Pub & Bar Awards winners were announced on Wednesday night, with The White Horse in Chilgrove, which hosts shooting parties, taking the crown of best pub in the UK.
You’ll find one in every village, town and city in the UK, and now the nation’s best pubs have been crowned at a prestigious awards ceremony.
Though many still think of smoky ‘old man’ boozers when they hear the word pub, the regional winners at the The National Pub & Bar Awards 2018 organised by Pub & Bar magazine are modern yet cosy, chic, and stand out from the crowd with unusual decor or innovative menus.
The overall winner, The White House, in Chilgrove, could not be more different from the type of public house you might see on Coronation Street or Eastenders, as the West Sussex inn has been described as a modern ‘quintessential shooting lodge’.
Situated next to the Goodwood estate, it offers guests a £225 shooting party package and boasts a ‘field to fork’ menu. [ . . . ]
