I'm often asked to name my favourite pubs, but there are so many to choose from and it all depends what you're looking for.
Personally, my favourite walkers' pubs are:
Yorkshire Dales - Falcon at Arncliffe. Classic, timeless, unspoilt Dales country inn where beer is served straight from the barrel.
Lake District - Sun Inn, Coniston. At the foot of the fells, with a roaring fire in asuperb cast-iron range and some great local ales on tap.
North York Moors - Birch Hall Inn, Beck Hole. One of England's classic country pubs. Full of character with two small bars and a tiny shop sandwiched in between.
Peak District - Old Nag's Head at Edale. Classic walkers' pub at the foot of Kidner Scout.
