Not all pubs welcome walkers!

by Helen Clover

I know you sometimes have recommendations of walker-friendly pubs but do you also let readers know about walker very unfriendly pubs?

Our walking group was refused service by a most unfriendly landlord today.

He said that the pub was too busy and as there was only one man behind the bar we could not be served. This applied only to our group (9 of us - clean, tidy and with dry boots) as other customers were continuing to be served.

The pub is at Ogbourne St Andrew in Wiltshire.


“Our local pub The Emmott Arms in Laneshawbridge welcomes walkers, they have stone floors and a bench as you enter so boots can be removed with ease. The log fire is a popular feature for getting warm and dry. They also welcome dogs and have bowls of water readily available. It is also ideally situated along the Pendle Way.”

Alan Whitehead, Laneshawbridge


“I run a pub/hotel with my husband and we love to welcome walkers anytime, even if you only need a toilet break or a warm by the fire. We can dry wet clothes, fill flasks, water bottles etc, and we love to welcome dogs, even our bedrooms are dog friendly! If anyone is staying over we have spare bikes if you want to go for a cycle ride. p.s. we also serve really good food with eggs and vegetables from the allotment at the bottom of our car park. p.p.s. we have space for one motor home if you need an overnight stop, and a larger car park for walking groups to leave their cars.”

Ann France, Cumbria
