Head to The Fox and Coney Inn for some refreshments after your walk. It's a historic pub dating from 1731 and Grade II listed. There's log fires burning at each end of the pub on cool days and a fabulous outside patio when the sun shines. They have a good menu so you can relax outside with your meal on warmer days. You can find the pub at 52 Market Place with a postcode of HU15 2AT for your sat navs.
There's lots of pockets of woodland on the route making it ideal for dog walking. The Fox and Coney Inn mentioned above is also dog friendly.
