6 Autumnal Pub Walks

Is there anything quite like an Autumn walk, with the leaves beginning to drop and the pull of a good old fashioned boozer to warm you up after? Check out some of our favourite pubs with rooms below, with beautiful walks just on their doorsteps.

The Bridge Inn

The Bridge Inn - Edinburgh

An 8 mile walk from Edinburgh Quay complex, you can follow the Union Canal all the way to the Bridge Inn at Ratho. The route is flat and a range of easy terrains, perfect for a gentle but lengthy walk of a day. Perhaps picnic along the way, before settling at the Bridge Inn for a pub dinner and a good night's rest. It makes a peaceful waterside walk with stunning surroundings, or a gentle bike ride too. The pub itself is cosy and comfortable, with waterside views and excellent local food.

The Carpenters Arms

The Carpenters Arms - Cambridgeshire

Just on your doorstep you have the delights of the village of Great Wilbraham to potter around, and the village common, perfect for an afternoon's stroll. A little further afield, just a short drive away, you can spend a day's walking at Wandlebury Country Park, and enjoy nature's winding paths or else head to Angelsey Abbey, with its 98 acres of gardens and grounds. Retire to the Carpenter's Arms with its boutique rooms and incredible food.

The Cricket Arms

The Cricket Inn - Devon

The Cricket Inn is in the perfect location for a coastal stroll, overlooking the sea at Beesands. From here you can stroll to the beach for a day at the seaside, or take a stroll along the South West Coastal Path, taking the path for as long or as little a stroll as you might fancy, perhaps stopping at Start Point Lighthouse or any number of beaches along the way. The Inn itself is a charming coastal stay, in a nautical theme and with excellent service for your foodie pub getaway.

The Double Red Duke

The Double Red Duke - Oxfordshire

As well as close access to the historic town of Oxford itself, this rural pub is a perfect getaway for walkers, just moments away from the Cotswolds national park. Enjoy unlimited outdoor adventures in the Cotswolds, from long country walks to bike rides, horse rides and more. The Double Red Duke opened in 2021 with 19 stunning rooms, roaring fires and incredible seasonal food.

The Jolly Sportsman

The Jolly Sportsman - Lewes

Situated on the edge of the South Downs, the Jolly Sportsman is in the perfect location to enjoy walks stretching along the south coast and amongst the rolling hills. There are even unlimited walks from the very doorstep of the pub, including some circular routes taking you back in time for tea. The pub itself is known for its rustic atmosphere and incredible food, all using local ingredients and pub classics.

The West Arms

The West Arms - Wrexham

This warm and inviting pub in North Wales has characterful rooms and sensational food. Just step outside to enjoy the incredible walks on your doorstep. Hiking in the Berwyn Mountains includes walks to the breathtaking Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, one of Wales’ highest!
