Reviewed June 27, 2010

We stayed here for a friends wedding and were thoroughly surprised at how great this little find was. It cost £50 to stay for the night including breakfast. The room we were in was quite small but had everything we needed including an en suite and a very comfortable bed. Homecooked fry up the next morning with friendly service throughout. Would love to go back to try the evening food as it looked a very friendly pub.

We visited Longleat for the day and stayed here for one night. The food, beer and wine in the pub are great. There was a fantastic atmosphere and lovely feel to the place, we only wish that we'd booked to eat in the restaurant... We stayed in the larger room, this is an old building so low ceilings and uneven floorboards with split level from bathroom to bedroom. The only bad thing I could say about this stay was the shower - there isn't one. Apart from that I would recommend to anyone. Breakfast was lovely! Loved this place.

PS. Mind your head on the beams from the bedrooms down to the restaurant!!!

This is a listed pub with 2 rooms above used for B&B. We stayed in the smaller room, which has an en-suite shower, and although the room is quite small, it's also cosy and has character. The room was cleaned to a very high standard each day (including fresh towels), tea and coffee facilities were provided in the room, and the full english breakfast was really good. It's also worth noting that the road outside the pub was quiet, and noise from the pub itself didn't seem to travel up to the room.

We chose this B&B because of its location (close to Longleat and very close to Stourhead) and because it was better value than most other B&Bs around the area. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend - particularly to people looking for a good value, clean, friendly B&B close to Longleat, and with more character than a chain hotel.
