The Not So Old British Pubs

18 May 2018

We and our clients love our traditional British pubs. But you might be surprised by what some of the look like.


Five English pubs built after the Second World War have been given Grade II listed status by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on the advice of Historic England. The pubs are valued for their architecture and history, including one designed around the nursery rhyme "This is the House that Jack Built", and one themed around the Romans in Britain. Their new listed status means they will receive special protection, so they can be enjoyed by current and future generations. In post-war years, thousands of pubs were built in areas such as housing estates, next to shops, community halls, churches and in cities damaged by wartime bombing. From the 1960s onwards, themed pubs became increasingly popular.

This is Jennifer who went from Upway to Bournemouth last month on a walking tour with her nephew. I just want to thank you for a fantastic vacation. Everything was perfect!

Our favorite places were Upway at the Manor House. Helen and her husband were so gracious and absolutely on top of everything. She made our lunches for hiking and did our laundry. She and her husband picked us up everywhere as scheduled. Our room was fine and the breakfast room was gorgeous.

Our other favorite place was the Ammonite Guest House in Corfe Castle. What an incredible place! Yvonne made us feel so welcome and breakfast at her table in her dining room was so special to us. We felt like part of a family - not the usual tourist experience.

The maps and other information and tickets you arranged were excellent and made for a trip where we could concentrate on the beautiful sites. They were beautiful, indeed - like a picture postcard!!

I really want to praise the Corfe Castle taxi service and their associates. They were wonderful. You made a good choice in picking them to get your guests around and about.

You may want to warn your guests there are some mean cows on the path to Swanage. Haha!

In short, thank you. You are welcome here in Utah anytime.
