We were regulars to this pub once upon a time when the food was high quality bistro standard, thanks to Paul in the kitchen. Since this talented chef left there has been a marked downwards shift to “home cooking”. Ok in Calne maybe, but not...More

Amazing service from Paul and Fleur. Just came in for drinks but we ended up having a pie and some scampi & chips. The pie was perfect - flaky crust and lush filling! And the scampi was amazing too! Can’t wait to come back! :)

Beautifully designed interior, bright and cosy whilst retaining the important pub feel for this charming village. Very friendly staff and a imaginative menu at very reasonable prices. Great for couples or familys. When we are in the area we will be back.

A lovely environment in a beautiful country village. Serving great food from an all round menu, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and quality beer, even has a gin bar with a great selection. Well worth a visit off the beaten track.

A great surprise to find such generous portions and welcoming food. The initial expectation was one of a gastro pub that wouldn't deliver and I'm glad to say that expectation wasn't met.
