We live in UK's pub capital – it's got the country's best boozers with incredible seaside views… but there's a catch | The Sun

RESIDENTS of the UK’s pub capital have told how they love living beside Britain’s best boozers – but there’s one catch.

Portsmouth has a whopping 12 pubs per square miles – more than the City of London.

New Data from Liberty Games say the seaside city is packed with pints, but there’s a catch.

Despite locals being spoilt for choice when it comes to pubs – there is a lack of nightclubs.

One local told the Daily Star: “From stag dos to football weekends away, Pompey is like a pub-lovers playground.

"The city may now be down to just a few genuine nightclubs but what does that matter when you've got so many boozers on tap? Pardon the pun – or not – up to you.

“Anyone after a crawl could easily stay put in Albert Road, a notorious stretch of pubs from The 5th Hants Volunteer Arms all the way down to One Eyed Dog. 

“Stop off at one of the several curry houses en route and you've got a top Saturday night on your hands."

Others on social media agreed that the city needs more clubs for its students.

One person wrote on Reddit: “The clubs are s**t and there’s not enough of them.”

Another visitor tweeted: “Had the absolute worst night out in Portsmouth of my life.”

In comparison to Portsmouth Liverpool has 11 pubs per square mile and Bristol has 10.

It comes as the seaside town with the UK's "rudest landlords" has been revealed.

Locals and visitors say they are shocked at the "rude" service and allegedly unpredictable opening hours at the Lamorna Wink, near Lands End, Cornwall.

Meanwhile people living in a picturesque seaside spot with no pubs or supermarkets have revealed why they love it.

The residents say while they're battered with wind and rain for much of the year, they find they miss the weather when they travel away.

There are only about 30 residents who live on Foula, a small island roughly 20 miles off the west coast of Shetland.

It's been described as a "hard island for hard people" and it can only be reached by ferry or a plane.

There is no wi-fi, no pubs or bars, there is not even a shop to buy basic supplies from.
