The Pub Appreciation Walk Society (PAWS) completed 100 pub walks this week. Starting in 2007, PAWS has never repeated a pub, with the exception of Hawkley Inn, which was the venue for the first walk 9 years ago in 2007. Now, on April 24, The Hawkley Inn was host again to PAWS walkers.
PAWS was started by Tim and Nina Tinsley-Wickes as a way of getting regular exercise, enjoying the countryside of Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, meeting friends and, most importantly, having a good lunch at an English pub. And PAWS because dogs are welcome.
“PAWS has been a success because everyone has mucked in with finding suitable pubs, route planning and sampling menus.” says Tim. “We have been amazed by the variety and quality of the pubs we’ve PAWS’d at, most producing excellent food and all providing considerate and helpful service”
“Over the years, the number of walkers has varied from a minimum of 6 to an exceptional 32 when we reached the 50 walk mark. When we’ve reach our 200 PAWS walk, we’ll have covered over 1000 miles and it’ll be time to write the book”
Yesterday’s walk saw a turnout of 21 walkers. To see all the pubs walked by the PAWS group, the blog site is at
