M1 Junction 23A - dog-friendly village pub and dog walk, Leicestershire

Some pub opening times and dog rules are still changing. Please check your chosen pub is able to welcome you before making plans.


Dog-friendly pub and dog walk within walking distance of the M1 Services at Junction 23A! Better to drive there though, and really get away from the motorway in a small village that's somehow clung on to its rural identity.

Pub or Cafe Address

33 Hall Gate, Diseworth, DE74 2QJ


Open 7 days. Lunch served daily from 12 noon. For seasonal opening hours and food service times please check their website.

Menu Style

Lunchtime has sandwiches, baguettes and light meals, and pub favourites - fish and chips, burgers, etc. Not a gastro pub, but good value and quick service. For full menu information, allergens, specials, prices and reservations please check their website.

Dog Rules

Dogs on leads welcome in the bar.



Turn left out of the pub car park, walk up to a crossroads and go straight on with the church on your right. This is a no-through road and it's a one mile track that's fully accessible in dry weather. It gets muddy for mobility scooters/buggies after a lot of rain. The track eventually gets you to the Services (and this has a separate listing but it's the same walk) so you'd be wise to turn around well before that. Lovely easy walk through countryside, and sometimes you can hardly hear the traffic noise from the M42.
