Dog Rules

Dogs welcome in the bar.



To the left of the pub building as you look at it, there's a public footpath sign to get you started. So walk along Broadway Road to just before the school and turn right onto a green track marked with a yellow footpath arrow. This brings you into a fairly large field, and the paths take you in a large triangle shape around the edge of the field. Return to the road and turn left to return to the Bell. This is a short 15 minute doggie romp, ideal for days when you don't really need a walk but the dog definitely does!

For a longer walk, with the possibility of cows in one field, turn left from the Bell. Walk past the almshouses on the right and carry on as far as Goose Lane on the left. Turn right here onto a track, there is a footpath sign, and now walk across the fields in a straight line. You'll pass to the right of woods as you go. After half-a-mile the path divides shortly before reaching a lane. Take the right fork and aim for a barn to the left of a farmhouse. Emerge onto the lane and immediately turn right on the signed footpath so you're walking in the shape of an arrowhead and past the farmhouse. After the buildings the path divides, and you take the right-hand fork. Now walk straight ahead for 10 minutes. Parts of this path get very wet after a lot of rain. You'll wiggle around a track and then follow the footpath back to the Broadway Road. Turn right here and return to the Bell. This circular route is 1.5 miles / 30 minutes.

Perfect quick stop

Lovely pub, we didn’t eat but had drinks in the garden which was very comfortable. Did the short walk which was a great little leg stretch. We’d stop here again 👍🏻
