Pubs on islands

I'm wondering if the pub and restaurant on Inchmurrin in Loch Lomond is the only licensed premises on a freshwater island in the UK.

Anyone know of another?

Takes us back to the island/bridge debate that's been raging on Skye since theirs was built.

In this context I'm not sure I'm giving you that one, willk...

I wasn't really asking for a pass. Are you under the mistaken impression that it is accessed by bridge?

I was, but you've disabused me of that with that thrilling video.

Any others?

That appears to be a chain ferry, more technically known as a "floating bridge" so you might not technically have been wrong to think it was connected by a bridge ;-)

Someone from IoW Council will be along shortly to offer £3.5m for it to replace Floating Bridge no 6. ;-)
