4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Birthday dinner for 7, and booked a private room. Warmly welcomed and well fed with no complaints from any of our party, including a picky vegetarian. Food very good and nicely presented, and although a minor part of the meal, the bread and butter was great. Comments about portion size unjustified if you go for the full three courses. Would...

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Saturday evening so returned on Sunday evening. A lively atmosphere, excellent food, some unusual but delicious flavours, beautifully presented. Friendly and attentive staff and prompt service.

A group of 5 of us enjoyed a Friday evening's meal here. Staff were welcoming and very attentive throughout, despite being very busy. There was lots on the menu that appealed to all of us. Presentation and quality of food was good. The wine list only offered one reasonably priced red and one reasonably priced white (£18.50 a bottle). Other... More

Visit regularly for drinks when in town, food is very good and there are separate eating rooms that make it more intimate. Hotel rooms are to a very high standard. Nice outside area, Well worth a visit

We went for a late dinner at what seems to be a very popular and busy restaurant, surprising given we thought it rather average and expensive for what it is. A lovely old building with lots of antiques etc, the restaurant does have character and as it is split over a number of rooms it never seems over crowded or... More

A meeting with friends was cancelled, so we wanted a decent lunch before visiting Corsham Court and decided to try the Good Pub Guide dining pub of the year. The bars might seem a bit gloomy during the day and the furnishings are fairly basic, but all was made well by the warm welcome (we think from the landlord). The... More

Thank you very much for your review, and glad that you got to visit us! The bar is set to be completely refurbished later this year, and kitted out with plush sofas & armchairs with a real emphasis on comfort and cosyness, so hopefully you'll get to visit again sometime and enjoy the new look!

45 mins for two Risotto main courses and still waiting.....no photos of an average Risotto for £17.00. Small menu that should be great yet over priced. There are just too many better places to eat out, at a better price, between Corsham and Bath to go back.

Dear Nathan Thank you for your feedback. Our Monday night service had actually been very busy earlier in the evening before the Euro match football started on TV. We then unfortunately found ourselves to be short staffed in the kitchen, so can only apologise that you received a slow service later on. We will continue to revise our menus on... More

Great place for dining with friends and family. Massive seating place well segregated to cater for larger groups. Limited menu but extremely delectable. Lacks chicken options on Sundays though. The desserts are yummy, we tried almost all of them and couldn't fault either. The outside seating is very welcoming and picturesque especially in summers. There is also a little lawn... More

Intimate dining room with a friendly ambience. Attentive staff and locally sourced ingredients make for a pleasant evening in this beautiful picturesque village. Why not a maximum score? After quite generously portioned mains the dessert menu was populated by a lot of traditional English puddings, which were just a little heavy. Other than that (personal ) quibble you really must...
