An attractive, stone built pub at the end of the High Street, it’s not quite as traditional and atmospheric as you might expect from looking at the outside, but is nonetheless a pleasant spot to stop for a pint or a bite to eat. There is a courtyard at the rear with a few picnic benches, and signs advertised a number of events such as Jamaican nights on a Friday.

It consists of a larger bar at the front with some partition and low walls breaking up the space further and a small area at the back containing a darts board. Decor wise, the pub is fairly similar throughout with small flagstones on the floor, pale green paintwork and some exposed stonework. The right hand half had thick oak beams on the ceiling, whilst the larger left hand side was just painted wood panelling. There were a couple of stone fire-places with wood burning stoves, but unfortunately these were not in use despite an A-board outside advertising a log fire. A few local water colours were hung on the walls, and these were for sale priced at £30 or so.

Food wise, the menu offered a selection of “pub grub” dishes with options such as Ham Egg & Chips, Scampi & Chips, Lasagne, Fish & Chips, etc., and these were mostly priced in the £8 - £10 range. In addition to this the menu had a few other sections such as steaks, salads, jackets, sandwiches, etc. Our Panini’s were ok – certainly nothing special, but then they were only £4.95 so it would be churlish to complain.

Beers on tap were Bath’s Gem and Doom Bar whilst the ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Stowford Press. All in all this was a decent if unremarkable pub, and I would happily pop back in if in the area.

Great improvement since new licencees took over last year. The place is much more friendly and welcoming, good reasonably priced food, decent range of beers. Well worth a few visits!

Visited the Flemish Weaver in Corsham last night, we entered the bar , there was no one behind it, we stood waiting for five minutes or so, until someone came out of the kitchen, and the bar maid broke off her conversations with her friends and came to serve us. Not a welcome that impressed. Of the four (yes four) choices on the menu, three were unavailable, but we could have steak. We didnt really want that but there was very little choice. The starters were also at less than 50% availability too, I asked if we could have bruschetta , the chef apparently didnt "have bruschetta" i.e bread , tomatoes, olive oil, and onion !!! . However when our main meal arrived the steak was very fatty and not well cooked, it came with a vast pile of greasy chips and what looked like an entire bag of rocket salad tipped on the plate. We had to ask for salt, vinegar, sauces etc, in all an extremely poor dining experience. A few other points to note this the 2nd saturday before Christmas, we had booked and it was 8.30 in the evening, the fire in the piub was barely going, and in all organisation was sadly lacking . They did give us a free wine and apologised, however we wont be going back , this was a very poor experience that was very expensive for what we experienced.

I visited this pub with my family recently and had an absolutely beautiful meal. My children were well catered for and the service was friendly and without fault. I was shocked to read some of the other reviews here and would like to report that our experience was a great one and I thought the price to be reasonable for what you get. The food was delicious all round and my we were particularly impressed by the selection of wine and beer. We will certainly be going back!
