Pubs & Inns

  • The Crown revisted

    Hallelujah! A pub menu full of classics done with a wow. Muddy gets stuck in at Heston's award-winning Crown.

  • A pub that’s ready to party

    A party atmosphere, food so good you'll want to share, killer cocktails and the friendliest staff – Bel and the Dragon in Reading has got it all going on.

  • Grey walls and ring boats fixed to ceiling wooden floor and dark wood tables and chairs

    Swanning about by the river

    A pub immersed in literary history with stunning river views and a new chef adding pizazz to the menu. Is it a page turner? You bet it is.

  • 12 lovely Autumn pub walks

    Clocks are going back. Yippee! Enjoy a lie i, then head out for a seasonal stroll before collapsing in front of a cosy fire with wine. Here's Muddy's favourite pub walks.

  • The Winning Post Winfield Berkshire Ivy covered wall with arched doorway to beer garden with wooden tables chairs parasols

    10 lovely pub gardens

    Rain, rain stay away! It's the last bank holiday weekend and Muddy demands a pub garden, rosé on tap and *ahem* sunshine.

  • 7 waterside hangouts

    Water, water everywhere and there's more than a drop to drink (thank god!). Watch the world float by at Muddy's fave riverside spots to eat and drink.
