A friend and I recently spent a month at the Penney Cottage in Heytesbury, Wiltshire, UK, and we had the experience of a lifetime. We found the people charming and always wanting to help ensure that we saw the most we possibly could see, even inviting us into their homes for tea.
As one can expect, we frequented the two pubs in Heytesbury quite often, and we cannot say enough about The Red Lion. First, the food was excellent, and we managed to eat nearly everything on their menu during the course of a month! Secondly, Everyone there was friendly and welcoming, from owner Nick to server Tracey to Chef Mike - when requested, they prepared food made-to-order. Favorites included the veggie pasta, salads, eggs and Wiltshire ham, Ploughman's sandwich, & banger's and mash.
We felt we had become "family" there and hope that future visitors will try the Red Lion!
