Unique food trails

To enhance your stay we have researched Food Trails that showcase artisan producers, farm shops and the best eateries within a 20-mile radius of each pub.

You can tour the brewery that brewed your pint, visit the shop on the farm that reared your delicious Sunday roast beef and seek out the roadside stalls selling the local crab and samphire on the inn’s menu, then enjoy them at home. If you are looking for a pub for lunch after a country walk, a different venue for dinner, or a good café for coffee, light lunch or afternoon tea, then we list the best in the area.

Every Inn has a unique food trail under its entry; click here for the latest ones.
