Everything Is Jolly At This British Pub Hiding In A Rural Maine Inn

The only thing better than finding an off-the-beaten-path inn to settle into while venturing into new parts of Maine is finding an off-the-beaten-path inn that also happens to have one of the best British pubs in the state. This little spot is a wonderful place to spend the night, but it’s also great for a quick fish and chips with a pint. Skip the trip to England and instead head to this spot you might forget that you’re still in Maine!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Jolly Drayman Pub at The Briar Lea Inn is located at 150 Mayville Rd., Bethel, Maine. It opens every day at 5 p.m. and you can learn more about them on their website or on Facebook. They can be reached on 207-824-4717.

One of the things we love best about Bethel is the number of bed and breakfast options that exist here. Each is close to area skiing and comes with its own unique charm. Here are 9 that we recommend, including The Briar Lea Inn.
