The Crown Inn Alvediston

Booked a late deal 3 nights for the price of 2 so a bit of a bargain. Lovely old, squeeky floorboarded, quaint inn. Perfect for romantic/quiet getaways, no mobile phone reception (orange/O2), no light polution, just the hoot of an owl or two at night. Room warm and cosy, bed comfy. Food in pub was excellent as was the delicous cooked brekkie in the morning. The 2 resident dogs also lovely - Puzzle & Trigger! Will definately be going back again, as hospitality was great!

Room Tip: Only 3 to chose from and ours was lovely

We visited this pub for two nights at the end of September for a wedding and it was everything we could wish for. The room was comfy and quaint, and the food and the ale were excellent, and as for the service, the pub is family run and they could not do enough for us, from catering for my fussy eating habits - to running us to a nearby village for our friend's wedding. I am surprised about the negative comment from Tracy A as she didn't appear to stay at the pub - I thought this site was intended for travellers! We can't wait to go back in the New Year to explore the countryside.

I visited this pub on a Sunday during their recent ''Food, Ale and Music'' festival. The flyer promised live music, produce stalls, cream teas, tombola, garden games, bouncy castle and horsey racing and lots of local food to try from 12pm on the Saturday.

On Sunday afternoon there was live music and a bouncy castle but none of the other promises. Any local food to try was only available to buy off the menu which was quite expensive- £11 for a burger with chips and salad. There was a good range of local beers and ciders on offer which was good to see and were very tasty.

On arrival we were greeted by the landlord and were told to go and relax in the garden with some menus and make our choice there. No mention was made of food serving times. When we tried to order about 20 minutes later the same man informed us that they stopped serving food at 3pm ( only 10 minutes after we had got there). We couldn't even get the cold cheese platter off their festival menu. The landlord did say there would be be a BBQ in the garden where we could get a burger - we then found out there would be a 45minutes wait for this to start. Now very hungry after having cycled there, we politely raised the issue of not being informed of the end of service and were accused of lying about ever being given menus and about the time we had arrived - by 3 members of the same family running this pub. It was very unpleasant and totally uneccessary especially when the pub was nearly empty when we got there.
Needless to say, despite being quite local to us we won't be visiting again.

Hidden away in a quiet valley in the chalk downland of South Wiltshire the Crown is a traditional thatched country pub. The beer is very well kept, the interior is not all glass and chrome: wooden bar, comfy chairs, low ceilings, original beams etc. We stayed B&B and our room was lovely, everything one could wish for. Breakfast was great (local pork for the sausages and bacon) and the welcome from Dave and Lynn made us feel very much at home.

A spur of the moment decision for a weekend break we found this great thatched pub on the internet. It is located in a very quiet location but seems to be very popular, not surprising as the food was excellent. Well run family business, we were made to feel welcome by Dave, Lin and family, including Puzzle the family dog. The hospitatlity was great.

The room was a good size for a weekend break and had an en-suite shower room. the bed was comfortable and we certainly slept well. Breakfast was a good traditional English breakfast and set you up for the rest of the day.

There is plenty to do in the area and we will certainly try to visit again and add some more walking to our break as the countryside and views are beautiful.

Located in a very quiet location it was surprising how many people frequent the pub when we were there. It has low ceilings and a thatched roof with two bedrooms for visitors. Our room had an ensuite shower room and both were very clean and the double bed was very comfortable.
I had the Sunday roast and my wife had the duck on the specials board both of which were very good. They provided beer from a local micro brewery and had a selection of wines . There was free wi fi which we could pick up in the main bar.
we had a good choice of traditional cooked breakfast .
There was no problem of any traffic noise , there was good parking and the pub was in a very good location for walks in the surrounding countryside.
