Lots going on in bustling old pub with a good mix of customers, simple furnishings, local ales and smashing food

An enthusiastic young couple have sensitively restored this delightful, thatched 17th-c pub, but they've been careful not to lose its traditional character. He cooks the imaginative food (and was a MasterChef semi-finalist), she runs front of house and you can be sure of a genuine welcome from both of them. You'll find plenty going on including live music events, a regular pub quiz (every third Tuesday), cookery classes and an upstairs shop selling vintage furniture, clothes and shoes; darts, board games and background music. The beamed bar and dining room are furnished with wheelbacks and mate's chairs, built-in settles and bow-window seats around dark tables on patterned carpets, artwork on the walls (some painted by the landlord), a piano and woodburning stoves. Local ales include Ramsbury Gold and guests from breweries such as Butts and Two Cocks on handpump, plus 15 organic wines by the glass, home-made liqueurs, organic soft drinks and farm cider. Green values mean a lot here, as does using seasonal, local produce, free-range, organic or wild meat and responsibly sourced fish. There are a few picnic-sets at the front. Disabled access.

What the licensee says

A pub with a difference but made for everyone ... where people can sit, eat, drink, relax, talk and do all those things they did in the good old days.



We\'ve restored the Grade II listed building to its former glory, revealing all the historic brick walls, arches and beautiful wooden beams, added a new oak lobby and created extra space over the old brewery. All our food and drink is organic, local or sustainable and working with the seasons. Most of our suppliers are within 15 miles including Ollie\'s parents farm which do beautiful vegetables, fruit, pigs, lamb, cider and charcuterie. We also do breakfast on Saturday mornings, we have our own wood-fired oven for pizzas all the time. We host cookery classes and have opened a vintage shop. Plus our live music nights every month - we get musicians from London, Bristol, Brighton, Leeds and the local area.



Recently we were award Alastair Sawdays best \"Organic, Local and Seasonal\" Pub plus we were shortlisted for the SRA Top 20 businesses and Support the Community Awards.
