Your friendly local

Proper pubs aren't as few and far between as you think – not if you know where to look. Whether you're on the high street or at the heart of a rural community, you can choose from 100 of our good old-fashioned locals across the country.

If you're in London or the southeast, you'll be spoilt for choice: here you'll find 30 of our locals dotted around. Try The Font, one of the friendliest pubs in Brighton. Housed by a 17th century chapel on the edge of the city's famous Lanes, it serves a broad church of followers – of good beer, that is.

Over in South Wales, we've a couple of great locals – the highlight of which must be The White Rose on the Mumbles. Enjoy a pint and a pie here as you look back at Swansea across the bay. While up in landlocked Derby you have the famous Red Cow, a pub that's been faithfully serving Allestree for as long as anyone can remember.

When you find your favourite friendly local, you'll also find perfectly poured pints, great–value food and a good helping of friendly banter. Not to mention plenty of cracking deals and pub entertainment, from quiz nights to big games on our big screens.

Our Dining Out Cards can be spent at any of our friendly locals across the country, so why not treat someone to a present they'll really appreciate?
