“A brilliant find - we'll be back for a pint, meal and a chat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

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!!!)

A warm greeting and great food make this a wonderful place to stop and rest. The ales are extremely well kept too. The rooms are clean and spacious, but not new or modern so don't expect that. We only regret we only had one night to stay at the Peterborough, we'll be back anytime we can!

stayed for one night in May 2010. Made to feel very welcome by trevor and linda. We were shown to the Heron suite and were very pleased - very large room complete with its own ghost with a liking for a cuppa (the kettle turned on all by itself early in the morning!). We had a lovely evening meal cooked by Trevor himself and also a huge cooked breakfast. Great choice of beers and the pub seems to have lots of things going on in the evening, even a cinema club! Didnt have time to explore the local area in any detail but it looks very nice. great pub with very friendly patrons. thanks!

This inn has everything you will enjoy, from ideal location for days out to NT, country parks,
tourist attractions, and shopping in Bath,etc (if you have time),and at the end of the day on return to your base, your hosts will endevour in everyway to see that your relaxation is complete with a menu fit for many a top class hotel, the selection of dishes plus specials
we were spoilt for choise, the bar is well kept and varied, and when you decide to retire
you room is comfortable,clean, and peaceful. We are already going to book a return trip!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, ours is the Kingfisher

The title, I think, says it all. This was a wonderful find booked for myself, my husband and parents whilst visiting other members of our family. The whole trip was fantastic - the rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast just incredible (you can pick and choose what you have, but if you go for everything, prepare not to eat again till the evening!). We were fortunate to have dinner there on the Saturday night and were treated to some real gourmet dining, Trevor really knows how to cook a steak properly. They also know how to keep their beers well and we had some great local beers to try out as well.

I could continue on for ages but will end my review with a simple comment, if you're considering booking The Peterborough Arms - do it!! Much better value in my mind than some soul-less Travel Lodge.....

Trevor and Linda have really made PA an excellent place to stay and a restuarant of real quality. Prices are really reasonable and the care and attention to detail is second to none. Food quality, variety and pricing are all superb. They even have film nights and speciality entertainment nights (Wine TAsting, Music, Valentines specials etc etc). 100% recommended - go just for the food or stay over at a great B&B. Trevor and Linda have done wonders in the last 12 months since taking it over.
