Swanage Beach Swanage, Dorset, England Discover Purbeck

Square & Compass, Dorset It is one of only nine pubs to have made it in to all 37 editions of the Good Beer Guide (its homemade cider also won it Camra’s cider pub of the year in 2008). The views alone earn it a mention; it’s a 30-minute slog up the cliffs from the beach and resident chickens peck round your feet as you drink. The same family has run it for a century and their beach-combing hauls, ­including a fossil museum, decorate the walls. Pasties and pies are the ­staple fare.
