Colleague Trond and I hit the road immediately after work, in Bristol this week, in order to bag a couple of small tops. We first visited Failand Hill before heading south-east to Dundry in order to hike Dundry Down. The hike itself wasn't anything more than a short walk, but the post-hike dinner at The Dundry Inn can be recommended for both hikers and anyone else. They served good rustic food, offering both indoor and outdoor facilities.
