Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is going back to the way pubs actually started. What a fantastic idea!.. Out for a drive on a rainy Sunday afternoon when we found it. I'll leave it to others to describe the great atmosphere and ambience but for my part I was moved to put it into verse.. here it is -

    "The rain did lash, the storm was great
    The sky was dark as lead
    Our destiny and the hand of fate
    Meant we should find The Shed

    Strangers at first, we feared the worst
    But goodwill quickly spread
    And strangers left as cheerful friends
    That day we found The Shed

    With walls and roof of sterling board
    That's awesome we both said
    Small but formed so perfectly
    That's how we saw The Shed

    Guard this treasure carefully
    As we left, the locals said
    Don't tell all and sundry
    Or there'll be too many for The Shed!"

    Lots of lovey walkways to the horse, we parked in the town and walked to the horse on this occasion. Amazing views stretching a long way.

    Thank you for making us so welcome when we visited on Tuesday morning ... our five year old grandson loved exploring all the artifacts and hearing all about how they were made and used ...

    Quite tricky to visit as there tends to be a lot of traffic going past but it's a beautiful, well maintained tribute to the King of Wessex

    Arrived mid afternoon on the Bank Holiday Saturday and there was no parking available, so in heading back to Pewsey, low and behold they was a policeman 'on the beat'. After stopping and asking for any possible alternatives to stop and park, the very helpful policeman guided me to Wilcot, where the village fete was still in full swing, drive along the main road to the small bridge at the end of the village and turn right as you pass over the bridge. This narrow but long lane runs adjacent to the canal and there are many places to safely park. Either walk back to the bridge to get directions that are sign posted or there are gaps in the hedge which take you onto the tow path and therefore on the canal. The walk to the Pewsey wharf is easy at no more than a mile and a half and then explore from there.

    The whole experience is amazing. We were given a very warm reception by Marion, who kindly guided us around and then left us browse at our own leisure. We so wish we could have bought more than we did but have limited house space. We have never seen such a marvellous collection of oriental antique furniture and cannot give Marion and her team enough credit. Thank you so much for our experience, we will never forget it and hope to return sometime, when back in the area.

    My grandfather was baptized here in 1887. Looks like it hasn't changed much. The door was open and we were free to look inside. Very enjoyable.

    Investigating my walking map i came across the historical site of Swanborough Tump.
    Not knowing what it was, i set off to investigate.
    It was the meeting point of King Alfred & his Elder Brother, before they went off to fight the Danes.
    Historically earthworks were visible - now a small wooded area of Ash trees.
    A small modern stone and plaque detailing the meeting and other local interest, stand next to the older Sarsen stone.
    Free easy parking in the lane next to the Tump.
    Nice interesting site in the middle of the Vale of Pewsey.

    Came for lunch on a Sunday and it was pretty full but we got a table, ordered one sandwich (Crayfish and Lemon Mayo) and two paninis (the 'veggie' which is avocado, sund-dried tomato, artichoke, feta and chill jam.)

    Both were excellent!

    Lovely hidden gem of a shop selling all kinds of Indian goods and local produce. Friendly owners. I've bought many gifts there over the years. The cafe is great as well with plenty of seating inside and out. Loads of parking. Situated very close to nice walks along the canal and Alton Barnes White horse too.
