We were looking for a crash pad for a week whilst house hunting in the Chippenham area and came across The Peterborough Arms on the internet. What a find !!
The couple who own and run the pub are fantastic as was the girl serving behind the bar and the locals who were more than happy to have a chat over a pint in the evening. We were advised when booking that the room (we booked the 'Family' room) is a little tired but for us it was brilliant. Apparently all of the guest rooms are being renovated over time so this one will also have a lick of paint. It was very spacious with more than enough room for a large double and two singles. Not to mention two additional seating areas and the en-suite. We had all the space we needed and more......Next FOOD....even if you don't stay at the P Arms, please drop in for a bite to eat. The food is fantastic and cooked fresh on the premesis, we were really surprised by the quality and diversity of the menu with no request being too much trouble - even at 7:30 am when we were having breakfast. My youngest daughter still raves about her 'extra sausage'
All in all, great pub, great room, great food, very welcoming staff and a great pint of real beer. When our house move to Wiltshire finally goes through I'll be popping back to the P Arms for a pint or two and a very decent meal.
Oh .... I nearly forgot the pub dog...Bramble....give him a pat (just don't feed him!!!)
