The map button on each page, when clicked, opens a new window with a location map which has a red circle highlighting exactly where the inn is located. These maps are hosted by a superb website www.multipmap.co.uk where you can type in any postcode or address to find any location.

Those inns which are located in spectacular locations such as overlooking the sea or on top mountains, receive a camera symbol to indicate their surroundings. We expect an inn to have a well above average view to gain a camera symbol, although an inn sitting next to a picturesque babbling brook or in a cobbled street in an ancient village could still gain an icon.

Inns that are located within approximately 5 miles of a Motorway Junction - we award a motorway symbol and when you move your mouse over the icon, a popup message appears with the Motorway and Junction number. If you're specifically looking for an inn close to a motorway junction - try the 'Motorway List'

Inns that are located within approximately 5 miles of a water feature, such as a lake or the sea, we award a 'ship's steering wheel' symbol. We will also award the symbol for Canals and rivers, although we would normally expect these to be within walking distance. Leaving your mouse over the symbol will activate a popup message which names the water feature. If you're specifically looking for an inn close to water - try the 'Water List'

In the case of London inns and some in other counties which are close to London Underground Railway Stations (Tube Stations), we list the name of the station when your mouse is held over the Underground symbol.
