We stayed (and ate) here with a group of friends on a walking weekend in this gorgeous area of Wiltshire - and would recommend the walking too. Our room was in a building alongside the pub (most of them are in the pub itself) which would have been ideal for dog owners as there was a small tiled lobby with a very comfy looking dog bed. We used the space for our muddy boots. The room itself, up some stairs, was spacious, light, beautifully fitted out with a large shower and separate washbasin and loo and a very comfortable bed. Evening meals were varied, imaginative and delicious - and I don't normally eat chips but these were the best I've had in ages. Soups were home made and good and the meat and fish fresh and beautifully cooked. Breakfasts were good too - substantial if you needed them to be and with excellent toast (it's the little things that make the difference!). The thyme roasted mushrooms haunt me still. Staff are all friendly and helpful.
