Enjoyed our short stay here. The EHU have now been extended into the field so that is an improvement. Only 500m from the canal and a short drive to Pewsey. 2km walk along the canal to Pewsey Quay where there is an excellent bistro. Very good value - but of course it can be because it attracts people to eat... More

Camped for a night at the back of the pub. Dog poo and manky looking dogs roaming the site. Owner not very friendly if you chat to him in the bar. Toilets and shower could do with more regular cleaning. Pub looks lovely and is in a beautiful area. Didn't try the food.

Food - obscenely good value for money, we had fish & chips and the pork belly. Huge portions, cooked to a high standard. (Dessert is a treat too!) Drinks - good ale & cider selection. Again, great value. Atmosphere - great, friendly staff and efficient service. If you're in the area, go!

Four of us went for Sunday lunch. The setting is a delight and this is a very welcoming country pub. The food is home cooked and the portions are more than generous.Those who had room for pudding were not disappointed by the choice or quality. In all very good value and well worth a visit.

Having visited the Golden Swan to camp overnight, we were disappointed to find the site littered with dog faeces. The pub dogs were also regularly begging for food, eating out of any containers left open and urinating next to our tent. Not at all recommended, especially for those with young children.

Service was slow and food was unremarkable. We stayed here for the weekend and camped to the back of the pub. The camping services where clean and well kept but only one female toilet between forty guests is not acceptable. The website asks you to keep all dogs under control and clear up their mess but the pub dogs where... More

A wonderful trip along the canal at Pewsey on a narrow boat was topped off by a plentiful and delicious lunch at this very friendly village pub just minutes walk from the canal. Would thoroughly recommend the food at this little gem tucked away in the countryside. We visited as a family group of 11 adults and the service, food... More

Always a friendly welcome, good pub food. Lovely village setting. If you come on the first Tuesday of the summer months (April-Sept) you can see us foolhardy Pewsey Vale Running Club members running our Time Trials. Such fun!

We stopped here for Sunday lunch as a group of 4 and had a really good time. Sunday lunch is a selection of roasts rather than the full menu, but that wasn’t a problem for us. Good location, plenty of parking and a nice outdoor garden area to sit in before we moved into the restaurant. There were 4 roasts... More
