The Grosvenor Arms in Hindon is a real gem. Steeped in history, the pub was once a thriving coaching inn for travellers making their way to and from London, and is now one of only two pubs that remain out of the original 17. In some senses not much has changed, albeit there are fewer horses (and pubs) and more cars. There’s still plenty of beer, perhaps a little less debauchery, more rooms (9) and glass tankards as opposed to metal ones. Set in the thick of the English Countryside, there is an abundance of good rambles, cycle routes and local places to visit. There are also plenty of great pubs and cafes nearby, too.
