We've dined and stayed before and always loved it, the cooking and the buzz, but haven't been for a while. This time we found the bright scrubbed look of the bar/restaurant has had a make over; the result is greater comfort and a bit posher,...More

Absolutely amazing for a country Inn. Full of character, accommodation first class. Had dinner on arrival and stayed on B & B basis. Exceptional value for money with excellent breakfast. Would certainly revisit.

Located in a quiet village and well placed for some good walking. Good room across the courtyard from the main building. The menu changes on a regular basis and is currently taking good advantage of seasonal produce. An indulgent lobster went down very well.

We were driving trough Tollard and were taken in by that lovely Inn. From outside it looked very cosy and nice. The food was outstanding (we had nice Cheddar Souffle) and the staff as well. The dessert was out of this world. It is a...More

Situated in the scenic village of Tollard Royal in rural Wiltshire, The King John Inn is a Victorian and award-wining country inn offering beautiful accommodation, delicious food and a warm, friendly ...More service. Our eight en-suite bedrooms combine modern comfort with rustic elegance and feature luxurious linen, Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, direct dial phones and luxurious toiletries. Our Head Chef is an accomplished fisherman, bakes his own bread, makes his own cheese and still finds time to get up early and catch local game when in season so you can expect that every plate on the King John menu is as fresh as it can be and is expertly crafted with a passion for the local countryside. We are proud to have recently received 1 Rosette from the AA. In summer, our terraced garden is the perfect place to dine alfresco while watching the chefs in action in their Victorian-inspired outdoor kitchen. In winter, relax near our roaring-log fires in our open plan pub or in the informal restaurant. The bar provides an ever-changing selection of imported drafts and local beers as well as an extensive wine list. Salisbury and its cathedral are only a 30 minute drive away whilst the beautiful hillside town of Shaftesbury is only 20 minutes. The King John Inn also sits within a 5-minute walk of the historic Rushmore Park, an area of lawn and open woodland home to the Rushmore Golf Club. Less
