Look up one of the dictionary meanings of the second part of the pub name.  (Unless I've got it wrong of course :D )

There is a road to the left of the photo which crosses a tributary of the River Beult after about 1km.


This is a small village with a pub, church, primary school, garage/workshop and a memorial hall.  All strung out along one main road.

Call me thick (and many people do), but that clue lost me JW, and I know the answer! :-\

Is the pub a Red Lion?


It's not showing as The Red Lion on the current GSV.  Might have been a Red Lion once but I can't find anything to support that.
I've not seen another pub with the same name as this one.

JohnFilmer  - Did you not pull over for a half?   ;D


Hopefully it might bring in some new participants to GTP.

I knew it at first glance, having driven down that road so many times.


I’ll pass at the moment to give others a chance.

Thanks Pete.  Moody Mare is typical of the current run of 'trendy' pub names.


Next one - which village is this?

Another renamed pub, was always The Beech Inn. I'm pretty sure I stripped the beer dispense out about 1975 when several pubs were sold off around that area. It reopened as a restaurant a couple of years later  for a while

Moody Mare, Seven Mile Lane. 


I mis-read your clue and thought the B road ran roughly east/west and not the A roads that it connects to.  Trying to find a B road in the area that runs east/west was great fun  :D :D :D
