Featured Wiltshire Restaurants
1. Red Lion Freehouse British, Modern restaurant in East Chisenbury
“A seriously fabulous al- rounder that’s so much more than a village pub” – Guy & Brittany Manning’s “lovely hidden-away thatched gastropub” is north of Stonehenge, and its convenience to the A303 helps make it one of the most commented-on rural pubs in our annual diners’ poll. “It’s such a great place: the food is terrific, the people are great, and the rooms at the guest house a few steps down the road are idyllic”.
2. Three Tuns Freehouse British, Modern restaurant in Great Bedwyn High St - SN8
2021 Review: “A super pub and family destination, with good food” – James Wilsey’s sizeable operation, with beer garden, has a beautiful rural location and is consistently well-rated.
3. Rick Stein Fish & seafood restaurant in Marlborough Lloran House, 42a High Street - SN8
“Good ol’ fish ’n’ chips” is the strong suit at Rick Stein’s smart venue in a fine period building on Marlborough High Street, where “the cooking is steady rather than inspired” – fancier fare is available, but some regulars feel it’s best to settle for “the simple things done well here”.
4. Dan's at The Crown British, Modern restaurant in Marlborough 6-7 The Parade - SN8
“Going from strength to strength” – Australian Dan Bond runs this “delightful” restaurant, which serves an “interesting and excellently prepared” menu. “The entire staff work hard to give customers a great experience and this is one of those thoroughly well-run spots where the whole is more than the sum of the parts!”
5. Lucknam Park (Brasserie) British, Modern restaurant in Colerne
2019 Review: From “lovely staff”, to the “most amazing bread to start” and “super” mains (with ‘Field-, Farm- and Boat-to-Plate’ options), this glass-fronted restaurant remains a pleasing, less ruinous, alternative to the main event at this famous country house pile; watch out for the excellent lunch deals.
6. Restaurant Hywel Jones by Lucknam Park British, Modern restaurant in Colerne
“Wonderful, precise modern British fine dining” is presented with “impeccable service” in the “beautiful surroundings” of this privately owned luxury spa hotel, built in a mish-mash of historical architectural styles. Hywel Jones, who has presided over the signature restaurant since 2006, “is undoubtably one of this country’s very best chefs, known for his tireless mentoring of up-and-coming talent”.
7. The Palm Indian restaurant in Froxfield Bath Rd - SN8
2021 Review: It might not look like much from the road – an out-of-town bathroom showroom might be on the mark – and the location on the A4 doesn’t help, but brave the underwhelming façade of this outfit and you’ll find a “swanky” restaurant turning out “inventive Indian cuisine”.
8. The Black Swan Inn restaurant in Devizes 25 - 26 The Market Place - SN10
This “traditional market town coaching inn” is a “real delight” – offering “great service” and “tasty, inventive food” which makes good use of “excellent locally sourced meat and exceptional vegetables”. Top Tip – “top Sunday lunch”.
