1. Zetland Arms, Kingsdown

The Zetland Arms pub in Kent dates back to 1863 and even offers Shepherd Neame ales, the oldest in the country.

It is situated on the shingle of Kingsdown Beach, so you can enjoy your glass of wine with your feet in the pebbles.

While the sea views are stunning, you can also see the white cliffs of Dover – and even France on a clear day.

Celebrity visitors include Saturday’s Frankie Bridge, and she was used to it Movie The itv drama liar.
