It is interesting to see which which pubs along the coast have made it into CAMRA’S Good Beer Guide 2015.
At Swanage it is The Ship Inn, just back from the little seafront piazza with its fish shops.
No more on the coast path until the Red Lion at Milford-on-Sea which offers Ringwood best bitter and bed and breakfast.
But there are many interesting entries for worthwhile pubs found inland. The guide is edited by pub and beer expert Roger Protz.
