Crosskeys Inn, County Antrim

Countryfile Magazine - - Annual Awards -

The old­est thatched pub in Ireland was once a coach­ing stop on the old road be­tween Belfast and Derry. A stone-built cottage con­structed in the 1650s, the Crosskeys to­day is a merry place renowned for its tra­di­tional mu­sic, Guin­ness and Ir­ish whiskey – and clearly has a de­voted fol­low­ing.

Joint sec­ond place: The Stein Inn, Isle of Skye and The Earle Arms, Nor­folk

An ex­tra­or­di­nary fin­ish, with both the Stein Inn and the Earle Arms re­ceiv­ing ex­actly the same num­ber of votes, leav­ing them tied in joint sec­ond place. Skye’s old­est pub, The Stein Inn of­fers breath­tak­ing wild wa­ter­side views. The Earle Arms in Nor­folk is a foodie’s heaven, and a fiercely guarded se­cret among its loyal pa­trons.
