The Swan Inn at Inkpen - the suggested lunchtime pub for this walk - closed in April. There is an alternative in Upper (or is it Lower) Inkpen, but you have to divert to get to it.

It's the Crown and Garter at Inkpen Common.

Thanks for the update about the Swan Inn closure. Lunch will have to be at The Crown and Garter - which is mentioned in the directions as a later lunch stop after 13.5km. Will now get the earlier train out of Paddington.

Intend going.

n=7 of us on a w=rainy_day clearing briefly on the ridge only to return more heavily. Lunch at the Crown and Garter PH good.
