WOOTTON RIVERS, Marlborough, SN8 4NQ
This much expanded 16th-century thatched and timbered pub is perfectly situated for Stonehenge, Bath and Winchester and for exploring the ancient oaks of Savernake Forest. Only 100 yards from the Kennet & Avon Canal and the Mid-Wilts Way, it has an interior as charming as the setting, with low, oak-beamed ceilings, exposed brickwork and wide open fireplaces. In the bar you'll find Wadworth 6X and perhaps guest local ale, Ramsbury Bitter. The daily-changing menus cover all manner of pubby favourites and beyond. Look for starters like mixed salami with sweet and sour gherkins; fish cakes with chilli mayo; and crayfish and prawn salad, then continue with local game casserole; lamb cassoulet with creamy mash; whole grilled plaice; or pan-fried scallops with bacon and black pudding. To finish, maybe peach and Amaretto trifle.
