We stayed here for four nights and had dinner each night. Megan and Michael and there staff were most helpful and charming throughout. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was very nice. We all appreciated the fresh fruit salad at breakfast.

Despite arriving late having walked the first leg of the Ridgeway we were very well looked after. The rooms are clean spacious and comfortable and well set up for muddy boots. Supper was hearty, great for those with a good appetite, and breakfast was good too, especially the fresh fruit salad.

The landlady was welcoming, very efficient and nothing was too much trouble if we asked for anything..... she even took one of the party who was having a day off from walking with her into Marlborough. Furthermore, after receiving a phone call next day about a lost prescription medicine, the landlady organised a thorough search and rang back within 10 minutes. Wonderful service...

We wanted to meet up with some old friends, while we were back in the UK, we chose this inn as my partner loves real ales, and as we live in Cyprus , we dont get many ales.
we booked an over night stay, our rooms were very clean,warm, well equipped apart from the tiny travel hairdryer!!!!! Our friends arrived so we went into the bar, and there was a lovely log burner going, so we got comfy on the big sofas, the staff made us welcome, we booked a table for dinner, 3 had the stilton and cauliflower soup. which was thick and tasty, i had the game terrine and that was uumm, we all had steaks.....the steaks were cooked to our liking, it came with peas, tomatoes and sadly some really sad frozen fries, a choice of jkt, boiled or nice chunky chips would of been much better.....perhaps we are spoilt living in northern cyprus with the wonderful potatoes, never a a frozen chip in sight....we returned to the bar and enjoyed some more drinks, it was a friday night, but very quite. we had a good sleep in comfortable bed and enjoyed a very nice full english breakfast, along with, cereal,fresh fruit,toast and jams and marmalade's and as much tea and coffee as you wanted.

Visited the Inn with the Well on a Saturday evening for a meal. We had bad vibes as soon as we walked in – we were greeted by the unfriendly chef who had a dirty stained apron on. We entered the restaurant and only one other couple there and a couple of people at the bar next door.

We were served by the owner (I was told the wife of the chef ). She was not particularly friendly and didn’t want to enter any conversation, apart from taking our order, more interested in getting back to the bar to talk to the locals.

The food was disappointing and I guess all out of a freezer and no finesses what so ever. The other couple left and we were the only people in the restaurant until we left at about 8.30 pm. I wished we had followed our instincts and walked out after the encounter with the chef and seeing the place empty on a Saturday night. To be fair the meal was not that expensive. We had stayed in a few other places on our break where the meals were slightly dearer – but the quality more than justified the cost.

The acid test – would we return – defiantly not – awful.
