Family run, friendly, welcoming, great cooking and brilliant service, what more could you want from a village pub located in unspoiled countryside near the Wiltshire/Somerset border just 2 miles from Bradford-on-Avon.
Well with this one you get log fires in the winter, cricket being played on their own adjacent cricket field in summer, ( Viv Richards liked it so much that he played one of his benefit matches here), Wadworths 6X beer expertly cellared, a comprehensive selection of wines and a varied menu. Fish & Chips (with mushy peas) has a great following locally and their Chicken Curry attracts me back time & time again.
The hall-mark of this pub however is their unfailing and exceptional hospitality. You will love it!

I shared a birthday meal with my family in September and overall had a very enjoyable meal. I have eaten at the poplars a few times and the thing that always does it for me is the extensive specials menu, although i think it would be good if they had it in written form rather than just the blackboard. I had duck with a sauce and to be honest the duck was overcooked and the sauce didn't taste of much. The starter (goats cheese and onion tart) and the banoffee parfait were completely delicious though and made up for this.

Overall we all enjoyed ourself and I would go back as it's good value and good food.

My husband and I (!! - just call me Your Majesty!) went to The Poplars last night. It was a sweltering, humid evening and they had opened all the doors and windows and there was a wonderful cool breeze blowing through. Bliss! For a Wednesday evening, it was packed out but we were fortunate in getting a good table. I ordered pork medallions (scrumptious) and my husband had the fillet steak which he undoubtedly enjoyed. The prices include all the potatoes and vegetables/salad, so it is always a good deal. The portions are enormous! We were then tempted by the puddings - my husband with bread and butter pudding and me with coffee and walnut sponge with coffee sauce. Mine was decidedly wonderful and my only criticism was there wasn't enough coffee sauce (but then I am a pig for things like this and even if it had turned up in a pint jug, it probably wouldn't have been enough)! The pub was very busy but the service was prompt and efficient and all the staff were friendly and smiling.

This is a restaurant I would recommend to anyone - go on, treat yourselves. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

The food and hospitality are first rate, coupled with an adjoining cricket pitch where you can eat and drink whilst watching the wonderful game all adds up to a lovely summer experience. In the winter time there are log fires subtle award winning lighting, excellent beers and wines. Try the fish n' chips and mushy peas all served in a newspaper (with of course greaseproof paper as well). House speciality for a quick light lunch try the googlies.
This is one of the finest country pubs in Wiltshire that we have visited and we have visited a lot of them!
