    Each to their own, but we avoid sites with or near pubs ...

    We like pubs to eat in but being the only drinker between us, I'd rather have a drink back at the van. :BigGrin:

    Hi Joiner Thanks for bringing this to peoples attention, sometimes if you just want a nights stop over a pub were you can park up for the night is an excellent option. :thumb:

    We always choose sites with a pub in walking distance probably because where i live the nearest pub is over 2 miles away

    Handy to know, wouldn't want to be right next to a pub for reasons of noise and ant-social behaviour etc, however, being within easy walking distance is just ideal.

    Even just to sit and have one drink and make it last a while.........would probably need to at the prices they seem to be charging these days!

    Have a look at my Google map I have compiled with pubs sourced from all over the internet, some mine, many from other resources.

    If anyone has any other recommendations I will add them.

    If you ask at a pub it's not very often you will be refused, but the ones on my map have been used as stop overs before so unlikely to be refused.

    Well done Keith, I find it best viewed zoomed out.
    Looks like a beer map of UK:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Would be nice to sample them all.

    If you have a Camra Good Beer Guide it tells you if there is a campsite nearby.:Wink:

    I like pubs on the sites I visit. A few drinks in good company can bring the best and the worst out of people, it's a great leveller. I remember one poor lady who was not use to the demon and overdid it a bit,:Blush: walking back to the van along the cliff path she slipped and went head first down into the bracken:Blush:. When we passed she had her skirt around her neck,:Blush: so we gave them a hand to pull her legs first back up onto the path:Blush:. When she did eventually appear the next day she was full of smiles and said she could not remember a thing. :Blush:

    I never gave it a thought that this lady could be a member on here. Anyone willing to own up.:Laughing:

    Not all pubs are like that :RollEyes:

    We have stayed at a couple and had no trouble, like any site there are good uns and bad uns.
    I would choose a pub site over one that allows children any day :Rofl1::Rofl1:
