The ancient walls of Calleva Atrebatum, known today as Silchester Roman Town, are some of the best preserved in Britain. The ruins are not far away from this 19th-century Fuller's pub overlooking the common and cricket pitch. Two bar areas, with a log-burner in the middle, lead to a pleasant conservatory and pretty garden. A full lunch and evening menu includes baguettes, ciabattas, baked jacket potatoes and fresh salads; home-made pie of the day; hand-carved Wiltshire ham, eggs and chips; beer-battered hake fillet; and wild mushroom risotto. Daily specials broaden the choice.
