Last on the list is The Woolpack in the quiet town of Tenterden. The Woolpack is a hot spot for City Dwellers looking for a countryside pub experience.
Did AI Get The Best Pubs List Right?
Of course, a few errors stand out with just a quick skim read. One of the pubs is permanently closed, and AI fails to recognise the difference between England & Scotland. Maybe AI thinks that older means better, as most of the pubs in the list are well over 100 years old.
