Tower Bank Arms Review

With a porch that appears in a Beatrix Potter story and a location just a rabbit's hop from the author's home, you might expect this pub to be something of a tourist trap. It's anything but. There's a slate floor, a crackling open fire, and a bar that stocks some of the best beers around, usually including some of the great ales from the nearby Barngates Brewery. There's a friendly welcome and the meals are tasty and copious, making use of local ingredients; the beef-and-ale stew is especially good. Four bedrooms upstairs (starting at £95) offer a good-value alternative to pricier lodgings.
