This atmospheric pub was once a mill; workers reputedly passed beverages out through front windows to passing carriages. Today ramblers and cyclists exploring Wiltshire’s charms are frequent visitors; the inn is situated on the official county cycle route. A large open fireplace burns wood all winter in the central bar, warming a wealth of old beams, flagstones and oak flooring. Here you’ll find Flying Monk ales among others, and over three dozen wines served by the glass. The pub is also worth seeking out for its interesting modern British pub food and memorable outdoor summer dining. Nibble on free-range pork crackling with apple sauce while choosing from the carte. Start perhaps with lightly dusted salt and pepper squid with aïoli, griddled lemon and dressed leaves. Typical of the main courses is coq au vin, parsley creamed potatoes and garlic croûtons.
