I reviewed this establishment in December 2013 and was very impressed then. I happened to be staying in Devizes for 2 nights mid week just recently so I decided to check it out again. As it was mid week I expected it to be extremely quiet, how wrong I was. It was bustling which gives a good first impression for... More

After a morning tour at the Wadworth brewery we stopped in for lunch before the canal boat trip. No doubt the best meals after a week in the UK! Friendly staff in a lovely quiet atmosphere. I only hope that we can visit again.

We were told that there was a shortage of food and that a manager would come and tell us what was available. After about 20 mins we could see that no-one was going to come over so we... More

I'm guessing this is one of Wadsworth Brewery's flagship pubs. The meal we had was super, the roast chicken (from the local butchers) was simply delicious. The bar man (who also served us the food) was friendly and really helpful. The whole night out here was great, and we only picked it because of the other trip advisor reviews..... thanks... More
