The Best Pubs for a Winter Tipple in Somerset

The welcoming beacon to many a weary traveller over the years, Britain’s inns and taverns offer good food, excellent ale and a cosy fire to warm your toes by. If you’re spending a winter break at a luxury cottage in Somerset, here are some pubs where you’ll find the best winter tipples and a hearty steak and ale pie to keep you going:
Malvern is a spa town 10 miles west of Worcester, famous for the Malvern Hills running 15 km North to South. This where Elgar (http://www.elgarmuseum.org/) gained inspiration for much of his famous work, where Malvern Water (http://holywellmalvernspringwater.co.uk/ ) and Morgan cars (http://www.morgan-motor.co.uk/) also originate. Here are a few events happening during Winter in Malvern.
The UK is becoming a hotbed of good food, well served by farmer’s markets where people with a real passion for fresh, organic produce sell some fabulous treats to discerning customers.
