Another evening meal, another venue. Friday evening and busy but we got a table with no problem. Friendly staff and good food. The pub has new owners and will be closing in September for a makeover, we were told that following this there will be a "Specials Board" and an increased menu. The fish and chips was good.

Me and the misses were visiting Bradford on Avon simply to get away from the big city (Birmingham). I am a Wiltshire lad born and bread, and the the only reason we went to this pub is because I found out it sold 6x (using the cask ale finder app). We turned up not knowing much apart from the fact... More

We had a pint and their steak and stilton pie. It was very good and nicely served with a variety of vegetables and not too many chips.

Under new management. Had visited the old and now the new and what was ok, now looks very interesting. The pub is due a refurb next month and is currently on reduced kitchen but what they are producing bodes well for the autumn. Stand-out munch was the pork belly starter . . .and the soup deserves a mention too. The... More

We stayed locally and went for a walk stopping off at this Pub for our evening meal. It was absolutely brilliant food and they had a great choice of beers and ciders. The service was great with really friendly staff - they couldn't do enough and even offered local information and advice for our stay. Their signature dish to start... More

Popped in for a quick meal on Saturday night as stopping over in Bradford on Avon on a cycle ride to the coast. Menu was varied and priced sensibly. Staff were very welcoming and chatty. Had the Faggots, mash and peas which was superb and cooked to perfection. All in all, good food in nice surroundings, what more can you... More

We dropped in and the owner welcomed us personally, what a gorgeous place. We LOVE the sign and the dandylion artwork. The owner even let me have my picture taken with him! A truly beautiful classic English pub with a great atmosphere. Will definitely come back.
