Choosing the five best pubs in the UK is an impossible task. Firstly it’s completely subjective; we all like different things, especially when it comes to pubs. The author of this post happens to look for two things; a nice pint and a good plate of food. Secondly there are so many to choose from. London alone has somewhere in the region of four thousand, with another fifty thousand across the county. Ignoring personal preference and forgetting the fact that there are so many pubs in the UK, below is an attempt at naming five of the best. All of the pubs listed are different but all appeal to most, with regular appearances on top ten lists etc. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section below and we’d love to hear which pubs you love.
Here are mine, in no particular order;
This fantastic pub lies within a Grade II listed building on the corner of Hope Street and Hardman Street near Liverpool University. It was built over 100 years ago to capture the pre and post theatre trade generated by the Philharmonic Hall directly opposite. The interior is truly amazing with copper panels, extravagant plaster work, mosaics and fine woodwork. Even the urinals are finished to the highest standard! Don’t go just for the food or beer, both are good but the building and interior are the real reasons to visit. Fridays and Saturdays, as with most places, are the prime time to go for a few at the Philly as it is affectionately known.
