The UK's most Romantic Pubs

As the nights draw in what could be better than a romantic getaway with the one you love? Here’s a selection of small hotels and inns that are ideal for the occasion.

Picture the scene: a roaring log fire, a pint or glass of something rich and flavourful, and the company of the one you love. We can’t think of a better way of spending some quality time together over the autumn months than at a traditional inn combining a snug and cosy bar with some characterful, comfortable bedrooms.

Whether it’s an anniversary, a special occasion or just a midweek treat, there’s something magical about being able to enjoy a few drinks and a lovely meal knowing that your evening’s commute involves nothing more taxing than negotiating a set of stairs.
