We stayed for one night during our excursion out to Stonehenge and Salisbury. I will start with the good: The food was excellent. We had a lunch (Burger and Fish & Chips) and breakfast (Lighter English Breakfast) here and thoroughly enjoyed both. My daughter also had dinner (I was too full from lunch) and dessert and the pork belly was... More

Despite triple glazing it was still difficult to get a solid sleep. The advertised free wi fi was non existent. Ended up going back into Salisbury and found a brilliant Italian Restaurant where we were able to get free wi fi. Bathroom wasn't as clean as it should have been. Breakfast was just average.

The food was really good here, I had a huge gammon steak. We stayed overnight in the rooms above the pub, the room was quite warm, but they supplied a fan. I had the window open all night, but was woken by the traffic in the morning. I would say the only downside of this pub is its so close... More

Thank you for your feedback and I am pleased you enjoyed your gammon! I am glad you like our inn which has been trading since 1740 - long before the volume of traffic we now see. The triple glazing in the bedrooms is very effective, but only if the windows are shut, which doesn't help on a hot night. Thank... More

My wife and I along with my 80 year old parents stayed here for 2 nights.We enjoyed the quaintness of it and is very different.The rooms are on the main road but triple glazing alleviates the noise.Service and staff are excelant as are the meal in the dining room.Would reccomend to any one but there are a few stairs.

Five of us (including someone in a wheelchair) had an evening meal in the restaurant recently. The food was excellent. Two of us had the steak which was delicious, tender and perfectly cooked. Someone had the pork and she said it was the best meal she had ever eaten! The other two had burgers which were perfect. I then met... More

My husband surprised me for our 10th wedding anniversary and took me to Stonehenge. He had also booked us in at this lovely inn for the night. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The inn itself was very nice inside, traditional wooden beams and log burner. The food that we ordered was very good value for money, well presented... More

We stayed in January 2014 for just one night on our way to Salisbury Cathedral, and we arrived much earlier - flying in from the USA - than the staff/management expected - 9am vs noon. Despite this hiccup we were fed on our arrival a fresh breakfast, and our room was cleaned early so we could recover from our red-eye... More

We stayed for a break whilst visiting family, great for B & B, rooms very nice, well decorated and clean, bed comfortable, long creaky corridors but this is part of the character as it is a very old inn. Yes its close to road, take care crossing from car park, and some strange noises but again that's part of the... More

Service, Rooms, Food was all very good. The rooms are clean and decorated nicely. The only downside is the heavily trafficked road in front of the pub. Overall we had a very pleaseant one night stay at this Inn for a reasonable price.
