The Fox, Peasemore (3.2m)

pub-website RG20 7JN SU 455774
About ten miles from Newbury via the B4494 Wantage road. Four miles after passing under the M4 turn R for Peasemore, and you come to the pub in 2 miles more.
Reopened under new management in March 2013, the Fox appears to have shaken-off the Hounds following it, and it has been redecorated. It remains a lively pub next to the village cricket ground, serving three real beers. Hot ciabatta rolls and more substantial pub fare are reasonably priced, but not available on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Go up the lane by the side of the pub and at the end of the copse in about 600yds, take the FP L that leads down through fields to The Newbury-Wantage road. Turn R then immediately L up a track to Brightwalton Holt, following the track as it bends round to the L and then for 1000yds forward to Leckhampstead. Pass the curious war memorial and The Stag then opposite a turning to the R, take a FP on the L that drops through fields to the road. Cross this and take the field path SO up the hill. This meets a track that shortly comes out on the lane from Newbury. Turn L for about 1200yds to reach the pub.
