Thank God!! At long last, someone has come and given this place the TLC it was needing!! Forget the old reviews, forget the natch drinking pikies... At last Westbury has a pub/bar worth drinking and eating in!

A lovely selection of ales and wines are on offer. If you don't fancy that they have premium largers and Pilsner.. The food menu looks lovely, we didn't eat tonight but saw and smelt the food being served and it looked awesome!!

Congratulations to the new management because they have transformed this placed!!

Loved it!

Very sad!

This pub used to be the best in Westbury back in the 80s, until Bellingham got his hands on it. Used to be really busy all week, with good selection of ale, friendly regulars and the odd character. Anyone remember Reneee ("sack the juggler") or Jock - who would break into song near closing after he had had 'a few'.

Fast forward to 2014 and things are desperate. The place is empty most nights, but weekends you will find a handful of tattooed natch drinkers swaying in the modern bar, as someone on karaoke murders a song.

The to let sign is up, and it can only be a matter of time before this landmark W O T pub is put out of it's misery.

The main bar and snugs are wood-panelled and full of character. I've never had a bad pint here. However, the atmosphere and clientele make a drink in here a profoundly depressing experience.

What the hell has happened to this pub? First visit in a couple of years, and looks like the place is overrun by thugs. Away from the intimidating mob in the main bar (and I include the two staff in that), you have a few snugs, nooks and crannies. All these areas totally empty on a Friday night. Of all the barrels behind the bar, only Butcombe and Bass were being served - the former was totally flat and undrinkable. What used to be a lovely characterful ale house ruined by owners who look like they don't give a toss - tragic.

In many ways this is a pub of two halves with each end having a totally different character and feel. Coming in from the High Street youíre met with a couple of great little snugs, each with a low, beamed ceiling, real (gas) fires and old serving hatches with views of the stillage. The walls are mostly exposed brickwork, although they have a curiously shiny appearance to them as though they have been treated with some sort of varnish.

Moving on through the pub you get to an attractive wood panelled bar with a view of eight or nine casks racked up stretching away in to the distance. There was an interesting cart wheel opposite the bar, and a number of chairs made out of old beer barrels. The flooring here is flagstones compared to the striped wood flooring in the snugs.

Next to this, and with a separate entrance out in to the side road, is what I suppose you might call the public bar. Itís in complete contrast to the two snugs, having a high ceiling, not a great deal in the way of character and seems to attract a somewhat younger crowd. There was also a dartboard and a large TV projector.

It was good to see them operating an open door policy on New Yearís Eve, in contrast to many of the pubs nearby who insisted you had a ticket, even the Harvester a few doors up. Who on earth would go to the trouble of getting a ticket so they could spend New Yearís Eve in a Harvester?

Beers on offer were slightly disappointing bearing in mind the number of barrels on view, and appeared to be just Butcombe, Bass and 6X although this was not clearly advertised so there may have been one or two others. The solitary cider on tap was Blackthorn, although many of the punters appeared to be drinking Thatcherís Gold from cans.

In summary Iíd say this is well worth popping in two, and seems to be one of the better pubs in the village, although personally Iíd stick to the snugs.
