Whether you're toasting the successful completion of an offshore passage on a sun-soaked pub terrace or sheltering in the glow of a roaring fire while a gale howls outside, all sailors know the value of a good waterside pub.

For some, it’s the tranquil pleasure of an old stone inn beside a
lonely anchorage. For others, it’s the buzz of a town quay tavern. All
these pubs have one thing in common: they know how to make us feel
right at home when we step ashore.
