    They seem to be very rare down South. Most of them used to be at the remote rural pubs owned by the likes of Brakspear, King & Barnes and Ridleys. Around twenty years ago I seem to recall K&B having a campaign to "upgrade" their few remaining houses with oustside toilets. I believe the last pub I visited with a semi outside Gents was the infamous Mill Inn at Aberystwyth.

    To name a few I'm aware of after recent visits. Blackthorn will be along soon to add some more.

    By outside I assume you mean not within the actual building without going outside to get to them and they are covered and not equating to finding the closest tree?
    The only other one that immediately springs to mind is The Blue Flame Inn

    Sadly landlord Mick has passed away since my review, but the pub is now being run by his daughter.

    I remember outside toilets very well as I have just left my local The Sun at Rhewl, Llangollen.
    The new landlord has recently added hot water and we even get a toilet roll now.

    When I used to drink in Stockport in the 1970's - 90's, it was reknown as having the highest propotion of outside toilets in the country. Long time GBG entry, The Crown, used to have a description, "Awsome view of the viaduct from the outside Gents".
    Women often go into the gents to look at the "Awsome view" (but I'm not sure they look at the viaduct!)

    I think the outside toilets at the Red Lion Inn in Alnmouth win the prize for being the furthest from the bar. Any more distant and you'd need to take a round of sandwiches with you, in case you got hungry on the way! Cracking pub though.

    The Old Town Hall Vaults has toilets outside which are the only listed (not leaning) outside toilets in the country. http://www.joulesbrewery.co.uk/pubs/...ails.php?id=11

    Great pub with great beer but had a really strange encounter with the barmaid but don't want to go off topic.

    Ah yes, The Blue Flame, in the middle of the levels a true gem.

    How could I have forgot the Flame been going there for years. LL died a about March 2012 from memory/reading in paper iirc. About time for a return visit me thinks last visit was January 5th 2013. Subtle upgrades/changes looked like they were being implemented hope they haven't stolen the true character of the place.

    The Fox Also has some after a revisit yesterday.

    I've just found another one, for the gents at least. The ladies have the luxury of staying inside the pub.

    The landlord swears this is a protected ancient monument


    You can enjoy this edifice at The Crown Hotel
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan
