A beer garden likened to 'the set of a David Lynch film' has been named the best in the country. <br />
<br />
Chaplin's Cellar Bar's backyard lay empty and practically unused until it was bought by Harry Seccombe, formerly the owner of a local builders' merchants, a decade ago.<br />
<br />
But now punters can sip their drinks surrounded in a three-level haven of exotic plants, druid style murals and even a suit of armour following a radical transformation. <br />
<br />
And in recognition of this innovation the pub, located in a busy suburb of Bournemouth in Dorset, has been awarded the title of having 'Britain's Best Beer Garden 2016'.
