We stayed for one night on route from London to Cardiff and were given a wonderfully warm welcome from the barlady who showed us to our room (the Kingfisher), which was huge! It was beautifully decorated, under the eaves although with plenty of headroom, and had a leather sofa and TV - which would be great if you were staying for longer. The food in the evening was fantastic - Trevor's a really good cook and sources quality ingredients. We particularly recommend the pate as a starter, and his homecooked ribs. We had a lovely evening with real ale and friendly locals. Breakfast the next day was equally high quality, and the coffee delicious.
Contrary to the review below, the landlords have changed their plans, and are now staying for the foreseeable future. They are the perfect hosts - getting the balance just right between providing attentive service and also leaving you in peace. The Peterborough Arms makes a great stop off from the M4 or would be a friendly place to stay and explore the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. We would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay
