The pub insist they don’t take orders in advance for lunch, and frequently cater to walking groups. The service was very quick when the leader tried it recently. The menu is here: https://www.fivemilesinn.com and it might be worth checking it out if you’re coming on the walk so that you have an idea of what you want to order on arrival.
Dogs welcome in the garden on leads but not in the pub.
If you are bringing a picnic, there are benches near the bridge overlooking the water as we arrive at Upware.
