I like to eat at a pub if the food's a little bit different, authentic (no chain gastropub food thank you!) and the whole atmosphere makes you feel warm and comfortable. And that's exactly what the Poplars provides!
We went there on Sunday for lunch and I must admit I wanted something a bit different (although the lamb shank and all the trimmings was certainly greatly enjoyed by one of my fellow diners!). So I had a stilton and celery paté, which was possibly one of the most delicious starters I have eaten in a pub (but you've got to like stilton!), followed by peri-peri chicken, spiced just right, on a bed of stir-fried vegetables, which were absolutely delicious. Everything was accompanied by a very reasonably-priced bottle of South African Shiraz... what more could you ask for on a Sunday?
Highly recommended for a traditional Wiltshire pub food and drink experience, with that added extra that makes it stand out from the crowd.

We stayed in a nearby hotel that didn't have great food so thought we would try this for our second night away and hit lucky. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere welcoming and the food absolutely delicious. Thoroughly recommend!

Had a very nice meal here in the conservatory. Nothing to complain about with the meal as it was beautifully cooked and served,but not sure it deserved the price tag.

Wonderful evening, welcoming staff, brilliant food and very well priced wine which went down a treat. This year was organised a little differently, shown to our table then the staff came around with a choice of sparkly cocktails and canapés, I felt that being seated straight away made it easier for the staff and fairer for the customers. Nice one. The food was top draw and the champagne sorbet was a real treat. Well done to the chef and all who went into making the night a lovely evening. Happy new year. A very happy customer.

I have dined here many times and there is a very good choice of dishes on the main menu and also the specials board. There is a very pleasant conservatory which overlooks the garden. The pub is always busy and in the summer it also hosts cricket matches for local teams.
