* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Taken over by restaurant critic Fay Maschler’s son Ben in 2017, this “attractive pub deep in the Wiltshire countryside” partly occupies fourteenth-century buildings, and “now there is outside dining under elegant cover with fantastic views”, too. The cooking is “clearly home- made and very good”: classic pub grub items often come with a bit of a twist. But “it’s becoming too popular – parking can be a challenge!”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"They do great food here. Always intersting choices as well as some traditional dishes. They look after you with charm but can get busy. Dark and cosy interior and always good to be close to the fire in the colder months."
