“Excellent food, Great Atmosphere, In Fact a Super Pub.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

My husband and I visited the Flemish Weaver for Sunday Lunch a couple of weeks ago, and one evening later that week we returned just for a couple of drinks.

The Sunday lunch was excellent. It was a generous portion, served up quickly, and on a hot plate. So many places these days serve meals on cold plates and this spoils even the best of dishes. It was also excellent value for money compared with some other places we check out in Corsham.

Talking with a few regular diners, we were told the food is always of a fine standard, and in addition to their "Traditional Sunday Lunch" they have a "Curry Night" each Tuesday evening. With a good choice of curries plus a pint of beer for about £7 this is a bargain. On Wednesday & Saturday evenings they have a "Steak Night" special offer, which again, regulars told us is excellent quality steaks cooked to perfection.

When we returned to the pub during the week for a drink, it was bustling with locals who made us feel most welcome. There were young, middle-aged, and more mature people in the bar, all with a super sense of humour, and some who were extremely knowledgeable were chatting over the news of the day.

There was a great atmosphere and a warm log fire which added to the ambiance. I started with a coffee which although brewed by a new coffee machine was really first class. There is the usual range of wines and spirits available, with a good selection of real ales, lagers, and ciders. All in all a great place centrally located in Corsham.

I understand that until recently the pub was operated by two ladies, Karen and Becky, but a few weeks ago Karen moved to pastures new and Becky is now in sole command. She really is doing a fine job, and with Liam, her Super-Chef son, the Flemish Weaver is definitely on the up and up. Well done Becky !.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Lovely home cooked food and nice warm atmosphere, a good place for a inexpensive bite to eat, good choice on the menu and also a specials board. Waitress was efficient, bringing us fresh drinks as well as serving the food.

“A real let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This place has changed since we came here a few years ago - apparently now ownded by 2 milli wives who have given it a makeover. Locals using foul language at the bar and very slow and indifferent service of below average pub fare. We will not be coming back again - enough said on this occasion!

“below average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Having had a disappointing meal last year we thought we would give this pub another go. The starters were huge, no complaints there especially the pate. The atmosphere was lacking and no condiments were available or offered with our fish and chips. Unlikely to go back.

“Lovely place, lovely staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We visited several months ago and I meant to write before, but forgot! Lovely owner, efficient staff and they had a welcoming bowl of water for our dog. Super wooden seats, friendly locals and a very enjoyable meal. Will definately go again next time we are out that way. Jane, Dick and Jake the dog!
