Although the staff were rushed of their feet, the pub was wonderful, fun of old trinkets, beautiful old clocks in all shapes and sizes. The beer, cider and food were good and we look forward to going back on our next visit to Devizes

We had a very enjoyable night here. The place is quirky and eccentric. The room was interesting - not great, but not bad and the bathrooom could do with a facelift (our shower facet didn't have a holder!), but a very enjoyable dinner and breakfast here. The staff are a little chaotic, but if you're not in a rush it...

Our room was warm and lovely - with fantastically opulent curtains against peeling plaster walls - spotless bed linen and really comfortable bed - a good bathroom and great view out over the town. We didn't eat as there were a lot of Christmas shenanigans on and...

The room was dark. Not enough light to dry your hair. The bathroom was dirty. The shower head was partly blocked and the water was just warm. The tap was broken and it was a struggle to turn it on. It wass December and there was no heating. The bathroom dated about 1980 with white plastic moulding to cover up...

Went with friends on a Sunday. Pub is shabby chic inside with antiques and mismatch furniture and cutlery. It had a nice atmosphere with open fires. The downside is the food, we ordered the beef and pork, the pork was good with crackling but the beef was poor quality with lots of tough stringy bits making it hard to eat...
