Nothing like its photographs which are very clever. The riverside garden is on the other side of a very busy road and car park. Polite staff, very average breakfast missing a lot of basic detail. (Glass for juice, congealed sauce etc). We were situated at the very back of the hotel, hence not much traffic noise. Clean room but tired,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our pub. We are based on the A36 which we do not hide, but we still have a lovely riverside garden that many guests enjoy, as well as a cottage garden that leads from the restaurant via French Doors. The carpets in the hallway are only 18 months old and our furniture... More

We stayed here recently for two nights to visit Stonehenge, Salisbury etc. The pub/hotel was in an ideal spot apart from the busy road outside which you had to cross with your suitcases. We did not find the traffic noise a problem and we had our window slightly open. The TV in the room was quite small but that was... More

Thank you for your review and your very positive comments regarding your dinner, I am sorry the restaurant area was closed for refurbishment during your visit so that breakfast was served in the bar area. I am sure you will appreciate the importance of us upgrading and regularly maintaining our old historic building. I am glad you enjoyed your stay... More

The hotel is situated on a VERY busy road. We booked as we needed a one night stay for a local event. As a place to stay it was fine but not brilliant. Crossing the road from car park opposite was pretty terrifying. The room was clean and comfortable but we had to open the window because it was rather... More

Thank you for your review. We are a roadside inn, but I think that most inns of our longstanding are, serving first coach and horses and now cars. We can make special arrangements for people with a disability, although the road is often easy to cross, a little more difficult at peak times. I am glad you think that the... More

Friendly staff and food was good, Only worry was leaving motorbike across the road in the car park but it was fine. Breakfast was nice with a few options and dinner was also good, I advice the pork belly if you are hungry.

Thank you for your nice review. We have never had any trouble with the car park, but we do have space for motorbikes round the back of our pub by arrangement if you ever wish to stay again. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Liz More

Dirty glasses, greasy tables and very overpriced food. This place is more akin to a greasy cafe then a good food pub. Such a shame as this place used to have a fantastic reputation. Oh and clean windows would also not go amiss. My advice is to travel down the road to the Pelican.

I was genuinely disappointed to read your review. I am sorry that you think our food is average, this is not typical of the feedback which we generally get. I can only apologise if your glass wasn't clean enough or your table wiped, again we work hard to ensure cleanliness in our pub, it is a shame this wasn't your... More

The room we had was very well furnished and decorated, including the bathroom (Woodford I think). It was a family room for 5. The pub itself could do with a bit of modernising and the diner/breakfast were ok. We did have a very nice walk in the countryside opposite which was lovely. The pub is directly on the A36. It...

Thank you for your review and I am glad you found us conveniently located. We are currently completing a schedule of works, it is a shame this wasn't finished when you arrived. If you pop in again in the future you will see that the restaurant and function room have been upgraded. Liz More

We booked two nights bed and breakfast in March, for an anniversary weekend away! Amber checked us in and showed us to our room, a long corridoor with various steps and doors to manouvre along the way, the decor in the hallway was dated and I wasn't overly impressed. We got to our room which was pleasent enough, nice big... More

I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay and that you found our memory foam mattress uncomfortable - we do generally get positive feedback about our mattresses but I understand they do not suit everybody. It would have been easier had you informed us in the morning of your second day that you wished to move, rather... More

Good value stay in Salisbury area. Would book again. Pleasant room with comfortable bed. Free WiFi. Bar menu had a good range of choices, I had an evening meal on arrival, prompt and pleasant service. Nice breakfast. It is on a basy road, but my room was not noisy owing to secondary glazing.

Made an unplanned stop for lunch at this pub..a place we always fancied trying. Had to wait at the "wait to be seated" sign for quite a while until a member of staff finally appeared. If you are going to operate this system then there should be a member of staff visible to greet customers. We both had the Stoford... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our venue. I am sorry you thought your food was expensive - you actually picked one of best sellers and this is the first time we have had feedback of this type. I also find the crumble very filling - I apologise you thought it wasn't big enough. Thank you for trying... More
