Praise for Welsh pubs

It’s hard to imagine a worse year for pubs, but for a few Welsh watering holes the Good Pub Guide 2021 has served up some desperately needed good cheer.

Five of Wales’s finest made it into the annual listings, including national winner The Boat in Erbistock, Wrexham, which was named the year’s best new pub in the UK.

The Best In Wales award went to Pontypridd’s The Bunch of Grapes, while The Harp in Old Radnor scooped the title of Wales’s best country pub.
