Our View

With fine beer from Flying Monk Brewery, alley-skittles and a strong menu of both old-style and contemporary dishes, who would ever want to leave this character Cotswold village retreat? Not John Rattlebone, that's for sure; this Saxon warrior's name lives on as does his restless spirit that occasionally manifests itself here. The interior is one of beams, flagged floors, log-burners and golden stone, and walled gardens enclose three boules pistes and sheltered patios, ideal for the July cider festival. Country bistro home cooking is the style here; kick-in with devilled kidneys on rosemary focaccia, then chow down to Cumberland sausage, creamy mash, crispy leeks with a honey and Dijon mustard sauce.

About the area

Discover Wiltshire

A land shrouded in mystery, myth and legend, Wiltshire evokes images of ancient stone circles, white chalk horses carved into hillsides, crop circles and the forbidden, empty landscape of Salisbury Plain. To many M4 and A303 drivers heading out of London through the clutter of the Thames Valley, Wiltshire is where the landscape opens out and rural England begins.

Wiltshire’s charm lies in the beauty of its countryside. The expansive chalk landscapes of the Marlborough and Pewsey downs and Cranborne Chase inspire a sense of space and freedom, offering miles of uninterrupted views deep into Dorset, Somerset and the Cotswolds. Wiltshire’s thriving market towns and picturesque villages provide worthwhile visits and welcome diversions. Stroll through quaint timbered and thatched villages in the southern Woodford and Avon valleys and explore the historic streets of the stone villages of Lacock, Castle Combe and Sherston. Walk around Salisbury and discover architectural styles from the 13th century to the present and take time to visit the city’s elegant cathedral and fascinating museums. And if all of that isn’t enough, the county is also richly endowed with manor houses, mansions and beautiful gardens.
