Firstly, please note that this is a review of the pub and not the restaurant. I've no idea what the food and service is like there.

I refer to Clissold Arms as The Prettiest Pub In The World. I first discovered Clissold Arms while on my evening jog. I couldn't help but stop and admire the beer garden, quite literally covered in fairy lights. It's a bit kitsch but really cute.
