Big House Experience, a vacation rental firm, examined Instagram hashtag data for more than 200 country pubs that were deemed “picturesque” over the previous two years. As for the winner of the most attractive pub in the UK, let’s hear it for The Gunton Arms in Norfolk! 

The Gunton’s interiors are filled with magnificent dark wood and earthy design, as well as works of art by Damien Hirst and Lucian Freud. Moreover, the place is surrounded by large fields filled with deer.

Due to its stunning sea views of the Cornish coastline, The Gurnard’s Head in Cornwall came in second. Additionally, The Punch Bowl in Cumbria, tucked away in the rolling hills of the Lake District, came in third.
