Came here today with friends for a Sunday roast. The pub itself is beautiful and cosy with a nice atmosphere. But apart from that I would say it's pretty average for the high prices on the menu. We all had Sunday roast! I wasn't blown away with the taste, portion, lack of gravy and limited veg which cost £14.95. But...

Long before the present alterations and modifications The Shears used to be a regular stop-off between home and Silverstone. This days have long since passed but for old times sake we decided to pop in whilst passing, and we are glad we did. Much bigger now the interior was imaginatively decorated for Christmas with a white and silver drapes and...

Didn't get a chance to address the issues as wasn't asked if the meal was ok until the plates were being removed, and was a special occasion didn't feel comfortable calling someone...

A warm welcome from the staff at this old worldly family run hotel. We had a nice cosy room with a view, great service and some wonderful food. We have stayed at several hotels in this area and this ranks among the best, especial the food. We will be going back.

Sandra, who runs this superb little inn, has that rare gift of making every customer feel that they are the one person she has been looking forwards to meeting.The welcome is extraordinary. We visited The Shears for our wedding anniversary, eating in the restaurant then spending the night. On arrival the barman greeted us and helped with the luggage. Access...

We enjoyed a family birthday lunch this week. A beautiful pub with very friendly owners. It has a great atmosphere and wonderful all freshly cooked. I had the haddock kedgeree which was perfect for lunch. The house white wine was delicious, shame I could only have a sip- another time. We all enjoyed great food in a lovely comfortable atmosphere....

Pretty setting and well looked after restaurant (inside and out). Landlord was attentive and efficient. Menu was varied, high standard and a fair price. The locals were welcoming which was pleasant. suitable for an intimate dinner; family get together (children friendly) ; business lunch or just a beer and a quiet read...safe, clean and good feel to the place! Thanks...

Called in for a late supper. Quite busy but plenty of room to relax. Limited menu and took some time for food to arrive but well presented and as described. Would describe The Shears as more of a pub/restaurant than a hotel. Can't provide any information on hotel facilities.

The Shears is a lovely inn, tucked away in Collingbourne Ducis between Marlborough and Salisbury. The owners, Sandra and Bertie, are wonderfully friendly and the atmosphere in The Shears is like that friendly local you've been dreaming of - at least it was for us when we arrived. We had dinner in the Shears from their menu of pub classics...
