National Trust Pubs

I was in one the other day (the Tower Bank Arms in Sawrey , Lake
District) which was very agreeable. I didn't realise the NT owned any
pubs so it got me thinking "how many pubs does the National Trust own
and what are they like?"
Google revealed umpteen but I haven't actually been able to find a
Anyone help?

This is King's Head in Aylesbury and one of my favourite pubs. It is managed by Chiltern Brewery so mainly their beers. Highly recommended.

I don't have a definitive list, and neither it would appear does the NT itself, but according to the NT there are 36 in all:

Here are a few more to add to the list:
The Fleece, Brereton, Worcs (which tragically burnt down a couple of years ago and was restored).
George Inn, Borough High Street, London.
Various pubs in Lacock, Wiltshire (NT owned village).

The Fleece is at Bretforton, near Evesham , not Brereton near Cannock.
A very fine pub it certainly was, and hopefully still is though I haven't been there since the fire.

I have a feeling the Strickland Arms, near Sizergh Castle, near Kendal is now in the hands of the NT. Sizergh Castle is the ancestral pile of the Hornyold Strickland family - I kid you not. I understand that they have now dropped the Hornyold part of their name.

And I think that the Hardwick Inn, near Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire, is also owned by the Trust.

Well done! I never thought of actually asking them. ;-)
Maybe you could resend with the tenanted ones marked * or something.
They're rather pushing it calling this one a pub. It's a restaurant.

Do you know which Xian cult the Chiltern owners belong to? It seems strange to find religious fundies brewing beer, unless it's an old-established sect with roots in the days when beer was a temperance drink.

I have and you would not know it had burnt down. However it took me a short while to realise that the thatched roof (the cause of the fire in combination with a chimney I believe) has been replaced with tiles. If you did not know you would never guess!
