There appears to be a change of landlord, and the pub has been refurbished with a stronger emphasis on Arkells branding. I took my mum here for lunch on a Monday and the pub was doing a good trade - mainly for its food. My steak and ale pie was unremarkable although on the plus side there were three fresh vegetables. My mum greatly enjoyed her smoked salmon and prawns on a bed of salad with pine kernels. The price of £9.95 for each dish was reasonable. I had a pint of 3Bs which was in excellent condition. Wiltshire Gold and a darker house beer at 5% were also available. Nice outside area for eating and a conservatory. Accommodation is also available.

Yes, as said, it's a pleasant friendly village pub with some nice touches, such as an open log fire.

The ales were on form when we called a couple of days ago. My pint of Wiltshire Gold went down particularly well.

The food was good quality pub fare on this occasion at least.

The customers at lunchtime appeared to be quite often older people, and there was a concessionary menu for them.

Nice old village pub run by a friendly couple. Three beers from Arkells were on hand-pump and the 3Bs could not be faulted. The meals cannot be faulted on quantity, but unfortunately they aren't great if you don't order them when they are freshly made. Twice running I've had reheated pie - the charred pastry could be used as an offensive weapon. When the food isn't reheated it's fine. Nevertheless a nice place to enjoy some excellent real ale.

Had a pleasant weekend lunch here. Drinking the Arkells was nostalgic for me (drank a lot in my Uni days).

lovely meal, reasonable prices, nice beer and a pleasant atmosphere. Not many of these country pubs around these days so visit as soon a you can.
