    This may be one for the Bothy, if so then @Moderators please feel free to move..

    Some people like to take refreshment at cafes and some pubs, I'm more of a pub fan, a refreshing pint and a steak and ale pie and I'm a happy bunny. So as the title suggests, what are your favourite pubs on your travels?

    A couple for starters from me, both quite close together in the Peak District:

    - The Devonshire Arms in Hartington, good beer, decent food and dog friendly with an open fire

    - The Royal Oak in Wetton, as above, good beer (has quite a good selection that changes often), home made food, dog friendly and has an open fire for those cold winter days. Also the landlord is very friendly and takes time to chat, recommend places and other pubs/cafes/attractions to visit

    I rather like this one on the Pennine Way....if you are walking from Keld to Bowes this comes at just the right time for an early lunch. I've known walkers spend too much time in here and get lost on Sleightholme Moor.....so there's a warning :smile:

    The Black Bull Inn and Hotel (Coniston, Lake District) Britannia Inn (Elterwater, Lake District) The Bridges (Ratlinghope, Shropshire) and Wasdale Inn (Wasdale, Lake District) would probably be my 4 top pubs for a pint after/during a walk.

    We regulatly do a 10 mile circular route through north west Leicestershire, taking in Bradgate Park and Beacon Hill. Half way round is The Wheatsheaf http://wheatsheafinn.net they so a dish they call "The Woodhouse Smokey" which is an ovrn baked pot of smoked haddock in a cream and cheese sauce with tomatoes, served with crusty bread. We do the walk just to have the Smokey.

    The Britannia Inn at Dungeness. Stunning views, eerily barren yet beautiful landscape, and they're dog friendly. They even keep a jar of free dog treats on the bar. Amazing place, amazing pub.

    Warren house inn in the middle of Dartmoor....
    Always a welcome sight especially when it's dark and snowing out... a fire that never goes out, really well kept ales and Warreners Pie (rabbit) just mind the shot!
