The Best Pubs in the world…(to visit on a cycling holiday) -The Sun Inn, Leintwardine

This is a pub like no other.  Its a Parlour pub.  Which means that you walk into the land lady’s living room and are served your beer there….The beer is brought in from the kitchen.  No beer taps, no modern pub trappings at all.

And this is how it stayed until the landlady, Flossie’s death at 97yrs a few years ago.  The pub was taken over by Gary, a neighbour, who had been helping Flossie for a number of years and Nick, who owns the local Hobson’s Brewery.  They’ve done a fantastic job of preserving the parlour, adding an eco friendly bar in the garden and providing a brilliant place to socialise for the village & visitors.  The beer is great – there is no pretentious food – just pork pies from the village  butcher, or fish & chips from the chippie next door.  Try it out on any of our Shropshire Cycle Tours.
