The guide's editor, Rebecca Burr, said: "Pubs are a quintessential part of British life and the standard of food being served in them continues to reach new heights.

"The value of the local pub cannot be underestimated, particularly in rural areas. From the local darts team to the village cricket 11, from quiz nights to wine tastings, pubs provide more than just a meeting point - they are often the hub of the community."
