And in recent years some of the prettiest pubs up and down the country have added bedrooms to their offerings, so you can make a weekend of it and slip off into a slumber after a few too many glasses or Pimm’s.

The Beckford Arms, Wiltshire
Traditional yet tasteful, this country pub settled on the edge of the rolling parkland of Fonthill Estate in south Wiltshire is just two hours from busy London. The friendly pub offers classic British food, minimalist stylish bedrooms and a pretty garden and terrace area. There are even two additional lodges just down the road if all eight rooms are full at the inn.
The Wild Rabbit, Cotswolds
Designed by Lady Carole Bamford, this elegant 12-bedroom pub in the small village of Kingham, Oxfordshire is a re-invention of the traditional British inn. With locally-sourced, organic food served in the Wild Rabbit’s relaxed restaurant, the chic 18th Century farmhouse, decorated with natural woods and neutral colours, provides a luxurious getaway.
