  • 5 Guest Rooms
  • Contemporary Pub with Rooms
A lovely old Wiltshire pub with great food and stylish rooms

Dating back to the 16th century, this grade II-listed coaching inn reopened a couple of years ago after a major refurbishment, and is a lovely old pub that has had some new life breathed into it by its new owners, the West Country Butcombe Brewery.  Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, not far from the small but historic town of Malmesbury, Wiltshire, it makes for a tremendous place to stay while soaking up the delights of what is an extremely historic area – home to Malmesbury Abbey, among many other attractions.

The pub has five beautifully updated bedrooms, divided between spacious 'Signature' rooms and cosier 'Snug' rooms on the top floor. They're all nicely decorated with either freestanding baths or showers, luxury toiletries. Smart TVs, tea and coffee, and - where there's room – a desk. As for the food, it's worth a trip even if you're not staying: very seasonal, and very pubby too, with a good selection of steaks, delicious local venison in season, a decent burger and fish and chips as well as more adventurous dishes like ox-cheek bourguignon, duck rillettes and squash risotto – all naturally washed down with some of Butcombe's excellent beers. They also serve a selection of roasts on Sunday and sandwiches at lunchtime, which you can enjoy in the garden outside in summer.



Open all year.


Double rooms from £97 a night, including breakfast.
