Our Local Pubs

We’re very lucky to have a great selection of pubs within an easy drive from Wallops Wood. Not only do many of our guests enjoy a drink or meal out while staying here, but our staff also look forward to getting together for occasional drinks after work. The pubs were much missed while closed in the latest lockdown, so we’re really pleased they’re now open again for us all to enjoy. 

Many of our local pubs have pretty gardens to sit out in (you may need to wrap up a bit!), and have menus to suit a wide range of tastes and diets. 

The pubs listed below have re-opened adhering to the latest Covid rules, with outdoor seating only and tables spaced out for social distancing. 

Please ensure you book your table at your chosen pub before setting out.
