3. Ye Olde Fighting Cocks - 795

Ye Olde Fighting Cocks - 795

This St. Albans pub is recognised by Guinness as the oldest pub, but has a little controversy attached. Documents suggest the pub began in 795. However, it may only have arrived on its current site, an old pigeon coop, in 1485, with earlier incarnation standing on other sites. As a result, some observers claim the real date should be later, though Guinness have stood firm.

(The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
