Local Area


Our Pub is a popular hotspot for Ramblers and cyclists due to the number of adjacent public footpaths and the nearby kennet and Avon Canal.

A circular walk of around 4 miles starts at the local st Peters Church just around the corner from the pub...

About eight miles from Newbury via Bury's Bank Road. Turn right up the hill at the end, and keep straight on (passing The Travellers Friend) until you arrive. Walk back towards Newbury and turn in towards the church, taking the footpath that skirts it. On reaching the open field, walk down the hill for about 400 yds until the track reaches the road. Immediately take another track to the right and follow this close to the River Enborne (it becomes a footpath) for about 1000 yds. When it reaches a rather posh footbridge with a stile at the entrance, eschew it and follow the river bank to the right on the near side, eventually reaching a gravel lane by a second bridge. Follow this for some 1200 yds to the Newbury-Brimpton road, where you take the footpath across the field opposite the road triangle. On reaching another lane, turn right and follow the track for about 1500 yds to a main road. Go right for 400 yds, then take a track on the left for 400 yds, then right on a footpath which shortly reaches a road. Take another footpath on the left that leads past houses almost to the pub.
