Five of the best UK beach bars & pubs for a pint during the heatwave | The Sun

WITH temperatures set to hit 32C in the UK this week, there is nothing better than a nice cold beer by the sea.

Thankfully, there are a number of amazing pubs and bars right on the sand – here are five of the best.

1. Zetland Arms, Kingsdown

The Kent pub Zetland Arms opened back in 1863, and even has beers made by Sheperd Neame, the oldest in the country.

It's found on the shingle beach of Kingsdown Beach, so you can enjoy your glass of wine with your feet in the pebbles.

While the views of the sea are amazing, you can also see the White Cliffs of Dover – and even France on a clear day.

Famous visitors include The Saturday's Frankie Bridge, and it was used to film the ITV drama Liars.

3. Old Neptune, Whitstable

The popular seaside town of Whitstable's most famous pub is Old Neptune, which is right on the beach.

The Victorian pub was washed away back in 1897, although has since been restored over the years.

Now, you can grab a pint in the pub "garden" – which is actually on the pebble beach.

Some punters have even compared it to the Costa del Sol.

4. The Coombe Barton Inn, Crackington Haven

The Coombe Barton Inn is off the beaten track, perched on the edge of Crackington Haven beach in Cornwall.

It's popular with surfers, with it being one of the only pubs nearby to head to after a day in the water.

It serves food and drink, and it's right on the South West Coast Path so you can walk it off.

5. Ty Coch Inn, Porthdinllaen

Found in the village of Porthdinllaen in Wales is Ty Coch Inn.

You'll have to walk to get to it – the roads that offer access to the pub are only open to residents.

It's worth it though as it's right on the sandy Porthdinllaen Beach.
