Bars with a view: The best pubs around the UK to enjoy – and photograph – at sundown

Wherever you are – from a remote country pub to a buzzing urban bar – sharing a beer with friends in the golden glow of sundown, as the temperature mellows and the light softens, is a truly wonderful experience. It’s the perfect time to relax, unwind and reconnect, and capture the moment with a sundown snap in this gorgeous natural filter.

To help you have an extra special summer this year, we’ve created an edit of the best pubs around the UK to enjoy an ice cold San Miguel as the sun sets, as well as some expert tips from photographer Bal Bhatla – AKA Mr Whisper – to help you take the perfect pic for posterity while you’re there.

Somerset House Terrace Bar with San Miguel, London

This summer riverside terrace bar offers an excellent pairing: San Miguel on tap and a stunning view over the capital’s skyline. Serving ice-cold San Miguel Especial and 0.0%, cocktails including the new San Miguel Sundown Spritz, a delicious tapas menu and live music experiences from The Sax Man Ben Barnett and his team of artists, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind with friends as the sun dips over the city. @sanmiguel_uk

The Watering Hole, Perranporth, Cornwall

One of the few bars in the UK that sits directly on a beach, this is set in the middle of Cornwall’s finest sands and is picture-perfect for incredible, atmospheric sundown snaps. With year-round live music events and outdoor stages, it’s also the perfect place to party as the sun sets. @wateringholecornwall

The Spyglass Inn, Isle of Wight

The Spyglass Inn is set right on the water’s edge in Ventnor Bay, with spectacular views across the rolling waves of the English Channel. Serving delicious, locally sourced food (including the aptly nautical Admiral’s Platter) it’s also a huge supporter of live music, hosting gigs every weekend. @thespyglassinn

Old Neptune, Whitstable

Known as The Neppy by locals, this bar in the heart of Whitstable’s fishing town dates back to the early 19th century. Sip on its fine selection of drinks and home-cooked food and catch some photos of the town’s iconic sunsets. @the_old_neptune

The Pack Horse in Affetside, Bury

This classy bar is nuzzled in a gorgeous, rural setting. Head straight for the dining terrace for beautiful scenery of the open countryside, where you can enjoy delicious surf and turf as you look over green fields and rolling hills. @packhorseaffetside

The Blue Bar, Porthtowan, Cornwall

Set among dunes of Porthtowan beach, the Blue Bar is a family- and dog- friendly bar and restaurant on the North Coast of Cornwall. A great place to relax and catch up with friends, the beachside terrace also provides stunning views over the ocean – so bring your camera and your framing A-game.

Fairway Buoy, Westward Ho!

The sunsets over Lundy Island have to be seen to be believed. You can do just that from the comfort of this pub’s balcony, with a refreshing drink in your hand. With a terraced beer garden boasting extensive outdoor seating, it’s the perfect place to settle in at sundown. @fairway_buoy

Dukes 92, Manchester

This stylish canalside bar is a perennial Manchester favourite, with its ‘suntrap’ terrace offering fine views of the city as the sun goes down. With a warm, friendly atmosphere and large outdoor area, it’s the perfect place to share a drink as the sun sets. Fun fact: Dukes 92 claim to be the number one seller of San Miguel on draught in the world, pulling an impressive 170,000 pints a year. @dukes_92
