The Pubs

And so to the stars of the show… the pubs themselves. These rare and exemplary establishments are listed here as we have been recommended them by friends and trusted sources or we have already visited them (some..many, many times!) and been suitably enamoured. They are the embodiment of the ‘R.E. Public House’ name. You will be hearing about them all here in detail in due course. Stay tuned!
