Really nice country pub in Wiltshire. Decided to treat ourselves to lunch for once. Nice welcome at the bar and seated straight away despite having not booked. A decent choice of food on the menu with a selection of vegetarian options too. Food was ok and well priced. Staff very helpful and friendly. No doubt we'll return!

We walked 6 miles and even though the pub was empty they couldn't squeeze us in. Managed to haggle some chips but somehow made to feel we should be grateful! Nice chips though. Staff polite but disengaged.

We go to the Silver Plough periodically and are generally pleased with their overall performance. Our last meal was excellent, the food, service and drinks were all great. The restaurant was not busy and this could be contributing factor as when busy the service can suffer. They have a policy of supplying a birthday cake on request as opposed to... More

Walked in and had not pre-booked. We were welcomed and seated very well. We had 3 courses and came out feeling very contented. The Goats Cheese topped burger was suculent and filling, a must!

There were seven of us for lunch. A pub lunch. Nothing fancy or particularly expensive was expected. From our experience it appears that profits here depend on avoiding actually putting anything in the wraps, treating tomatoes as the rarest of fruit that must not risked on a 'ploughman's lunch' - and on employing very youthful staff (cheap?) who are expert...

The second time I've been to the Silver Plough, disappointed with the chicken dinner, over cooked roast potatoes a very small Parsnip, for £12 ( and 55p extra for a Yorkshire pud) i would have expected a more substantial meal.

Often eaten here and on the last time, 17 October 2016 the Game Pie was amazing, a truly great eating house that always has super front of house and the kitchen performs the magic that the front of house serves

Booked for a family get together. Pre-booked orders. Those who ordered tomato soup, could not touch the thing, it was of a strange colour (suggesting may be beetroot in it or some colouring), and the consistency (may be potatoes???!!!). More surprise was so see the same concoction instead of gravy - with a lamb shank. (lamb shank was ok, if... More

Such a treat, not your usual Prawn Sandwich. A crispy Ciabatta filled with large succulent king prawns with just the right amount of sweet chilli mayonnaise. Really delicious, and well worth the price. Thank you The Silver Plough.

Dropped in hoping for food en route on the Clarendon Way with few other options - but pub too busy with other parties to serve anything - disappointed that there was no flexibility to even do soup or a sandwich. Oh well the beer was good.
