I agree with Travelling Welsh Boy in that there are positive changes that could be made here. We found the repeated growling and barking greeting from the resident dog off-putting and also the menu was quite limited for those who enjoy a simpler meal. However, the food was well-cooked and enjoyable. The chips were particularly delicious. The thin walls leave... More

This is our second visit to The Sheers. Justin and the food/bar staff are excellent....the only downside is the rooms have paper thin walls. Whilst what I am about to write is not directly the teams problem they should be aware of the issue...our neighbour in room 2 is completely rude and has been talking loudly on the phone for... More

My parents have just moved into the area and decided to visited The Shears today for a family birthday celebration. We were a family party of 10. All of us had a thoroughly lovely time and enjoyed a delicious Sunday roast. Couldn't fault the food in any way. Portions were fab, fresh and definitely home made. My hungry teenagers couldn't...

Came here as part of my husbands 60th birthday treat, he was stationed at Larkhill when he was with the Royal Artillery Will gloss over the first night as mistakes happen but the second night was perfection and we are so glad we decided to have our second meal at the Shears. The people are so friendly and we came... More

I'm not particularly happy giving The Shears just three out of five - 'average'. The location and building are both charming, food very good and service excellent. So, let's quickly cover straight why it only scored three and finish on some great pluses. Reason number one for the lower score is simply sound proofing. We were woken by the noise... More

This is a lovely hotel set in a beautiful quiet location. If you are looking for busy pubs and shops . . Then you may not be the hotel for you as it is in the middle of nowhere. . . But for us it was perfect! The rooms are lovely and clean and the food is 1st class. Would... More

I stayed here for 4 nights for work - Id like to come back but it is always fully booked and Ive had to take my changes with the poor accommodation offerings in Amesbury. My room was clean and comfortable, and lovely and quiet - I had a great nights sleep. The only negative was the wifi signal was not... More

Spent on night here with my wife & her parents joined us. The pub is in the middle of nowhere & didn't know what to expect. But, upon arrival the outside garden was beautiful. Hanging baskets of flowers & the staff happily mingled with customers. We were given our keys & found the rooms clean, neat & tidy. Both were... More
