Set on top of Bowden Hill with magnificent views across the South Wiltshire countryside and just outside the picturesque National Trust Village of Lacock this Traditional Oak Beamed Pub is the 'quaint essential' English Country inn. Fast building it's reputation for excellent home cooked food using fantastic Local Produce whilst still providing 'Good Traditional Pub Fayre' This is a Must try place. Offering Great choice of Real Ales from the Popular and Local 'Moles' Brewery in Melksham and with those magnificent views you really must give us a go! Roger & Kay look forward to Looking after you!
