Good Pub Guide Recommended
On a clear day, from the picnic-sets facing the green in front of this partly thatched old place, you can enjoy remarkable views over into Somerset and Dorset. Inside, the three linked areas - on different levels around the central horseshoe-shaped servery - have big log fires, plentiful oak woodwork and flagstones, comfortably padded dining chairs around big scrubbed tables, and a couple of leather sofas; the furnishings are all very individual and uncluttered. There's also a small light-painted conservatory restaurant. Hop Back Summer Lightning, Palmers Copper Ale and Plain Sheep Dip on handpump, several wines by the glass and farm cider; background music. The nearby woods are good for a stroll and the Wiltshire Cycleway passes through the village.
Good Pub Guide Food
Quite a choice of food includes a terrine of the week, nachos with melted cheese, guacamole and sour cream, home-made sausages and gravy, steak and kidney pudding, chicken wrapped in bacon with pesto cream sauce, a vegetarian curry, and puddings such as raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake and fruit crumble.
