Travelling back home we passed this pub and decided to call in for a meal - wish we hadn't bothered. Took ages for the menus to arrive at the table and we had to get up and get our own drinks yet the place wasn't busy. I ordered the calamari, it arrived, there were 4 pieces only and they weren't...

Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry you did not enjoy your food, we would have happily have changed it for you if you had raised it with us at the time. We are dog friendly (being a very rural pub when you take out the A36), and I sorry that a dog owner did not keep their...

We had to wait a long time for our meal to come. When it came the meat in the beef and ale pie was tough and the pastry was soggy. Chips were not crisp. The staff tried to be helpful but kept us waiting . Not an experience I would want again. I will eat elsewhere in future

I am very sorry you did not enjoy the homemade pie and that you had to wait for a replacement. Our food is cooked from fresh and so sometimes a small wait is inevitable. Thank you for stopping at our inn and I am sorry you don't intend to return. Liz

We called in here for lunch on our way to Somerset but we're very disappointed. The pub lacked character and the food was not good -small portions , slow service and just not the best quality of food . The staff were friendly enough but we will not be returning ..

Thank you for feeding back on our inn. I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your food as we generally get excellent feedback. I am surprised you think our inn has little character, trading since 1740 I think it does have a lot of intriguing history and foibles. Liz

This is a small rural hotel .From the moment you arrive the staff make you more than welcome. Rooms were spotless and a good size. The breakfast and dinner were excellent. Staff went extra mile to help with our requests.

Stayed here one summer simply because it was a convenient distance from three different places I wanted to visit. Was so nice I came back again. Food was absolutely wonderful, different menu this time but still so good. Staff are very friendly and the pub is cosy and inviting.

After a four hour drive we were greeted very well by Aaron and made to feel very welcome. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Aaron even took us into Salisbury at the end of his shift which I thought was really nice of him. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was clean...

Thank you for your stay and I am sorry specials weren't running on the weekend you stayed. We have just moved over to a new menu and I took specials off temporarily whilst the kitchen concentrated on that. Please do come back and compare us again and we hope we can wow you next time. Liz
