Quirky Pub, Good Food

A quirky little pub not far from the Kennet and Avon canal. Good beer and good food. Nice place to stop for a beer whilst walking the canalside.

We had been to the pub for Mother's Day and had been treated really well. The food was exceptional. Large portions for a decent price. So we decided to go back for a birthday meal too. Our brood consists of a lot of young picky children who were all catered for without any complaint and you are made to feel... More

Just had quick lunchtime visit to this country pub. stopped in on our way back from a job and thought that we would have drink and sample the ploughmans lunch, glad that we did as it was well worth it. The ploughmans was a very full platter, three kinds of cheese, a slice of thick cut ham, fresh bread, onions,... More

You get a lot for your money. Large meals at reasonable price, efficient service. Beautiful spot, very cheap to camp. Easy access to Avon and Kennet Canal, bicycle and walk ways. Shower hot. Landlord welcoming. Easy access to Pewsey, which is a pretty village nearby.

An all-round average experience was completely ruined by the obnoxious, rude and rather insulting Landlord. This "gentleman" should not be dealing with customers... Or with people generally as his manner would be more suited to a prison warden. My friends and I will never give is man another pence.... Customers lost!

Food was unremarkable, and the whole place is let down by the awkward,ignorant landlord who was argumentative, confrontational and sarcastic towards his customers - he managed to get under the skin of everyone at some stage who attended over a 2 day event. Don't bother with booking the outside room as it's tiny and the excellent Waddies beer is sadly... More

The Golden Swan recently did a BBQ for our wedding at wilton windmill. The BBQ was delicious (as their food always is), they were well organised and very relaxed AND it was exceptional value. I would highly recomend using them for any event onsite or as out caterers, I would use them again in a flash.

Having recently moved back to the area, we treated ourselves to an evening out. We found the Golden Swan and ordered a meal. Food was delicious and freshly cooked. The landlord and landlady are lovely, very friendly and welcoming. The pub dog is a permanent fixture, and signs warn you not to feed it :D Have popped in a couple... More

We were here for a wedding. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The fish and chip snacks were great. The hog roast was excellent. A great time was had by all.
