Public Transport

Belmont station is just across the road from the pub. However, it would probably be better to get off at Sutton station and either walk the mile or so to the pub or wait for the 280 bus as Sutton is a much larger station with frequent trains.
Check the national rail website here for times: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk
Bus 280 stops outside the pub and the 80 stops outside Sutton Hospital which is a 5 minute walk away.

Walk & Location Information

The Walk: A very short and easy 2.75 miles (4 km) walk over many flat and well made paths and bridleways with no stiles, steep inclines, steps, gates or other obstacles. Completely buggy and child friendly route. Lots of horses to look at and a good route for bird watching. The last three stages are suitable for letting dogs loose but otherwise there are too many horses.
 
The Venue: A nice pub that has two car parks and there is other ample parking in the area. Carvery lunch (from 8.95) served and main menu available. Booking only available until 12:15 then it is first come first served. I'm prepared to stagger the starts a little after 2:15 if people are still eating as it is a very short walk and we don't live very far. You can look at the menu here: http://www.greatbritishcarvery.co.uk/our-pubs/belmont
Children are welcome as long as they ensure their parents are well behaved! There is a children's park opposite the pub with swings and roundabouts etc and a multi sports cage for the older ones with balls. Dogs are welcome on a lead in the pub garden. At the time of writing the pub served Abbott Ale and Fullers London Pride. They sometimes have guest beers. The pub has an open Wifi network available.
