This is a country pub with a good restaurant and bedrooms. Although the pub is many years old, the accomodation is in a new building to the rear.
Being in the country, the only noise is from the pet geese, sheep and pigs in a pddock to the side of the building. They won't keep you awake though because the windows are double glazed and the livestock seem to sleep in anyway. The restaurant takes a large proportion of the pub and is well known in the area for the quality of food. This reputation is not misplaced.
The menu is varied to suit most tastes and the dishes are prepared with originality and flair. The prices are very reasonable considering the quality.
It is unusual to find a pub which provides quality food and accomodation (Some nice touches in the bedrooms) but still atracts the locals with the dog under the table in the bar for a pint and a chat . Well worth the drive a coup[le of miles out of Calne if you are in the area.
