Heron on the FordPark Lane
The Lands End was refurbished in summer 2018, including a new flag stone floor, and is now The Heron on the Ford. This spacious rural pub has a good-sized outside seating area and is under a mile from the bus stop (126/128/129, 850) on the old Bath Road. Sited by the ford across the River Loddon, walkers from Hurst can use the footbridge downstream but signs now disuade drivers from using the ford. Garden includes a kids play area.
